    I think I always use my wifi at home. For a while I could not even log on then I tried Colin's suggestions below, and now I can but 3G only...


    Not good. I don't want to run out of 3G as I need it when I am out in the field.


    And yes, I upgraded days ago ~

    - Sometimes after you perform a upgrade from say iOS 3. to iOS 4.2 *the iPad or iPhone wifi or 3G speeds *may be slow.*
    - This is an easy fix which does work. Please do the following:
    -*
    1. Go to Settings->General->Reset
    2. Then select "Reset Network Settings" (this will not erase ur devices content, music, videos, email, etc. It will only erase any WiFi networks you have defined).
    3. Once your device completes the action and gives you the normal home screen or Passcode screen, go ahead and power your device down and once you are sure the device is fully powered down wait an additional 60sec to allow internal components to fully discharge.
    4. After the 60sec is up, power on your device again and re-add any encrypted WiFi networks you had defined.
    5. Enjoy the "back to normal" WiFi and 3G speeds like you had prior to the OS upgrade.*

    I fixed it. For some reason I had to "choose a network" Why all of a sudden it unchose my network!

    Who in the hell knows...

    But now it says on the left side in settings, Wi-Fi then linksys, which is my thingy through Comcast.

    Electronics! Goodness!

    Very annoyed.

    Not that one single person cared....lol!

    I really fixed it now! The net work shouldnt say Linksky, but Marie, which is what comcast and I set it up with last June. I even found the password on a sticky on my wall!

    Why the net work had to be chosen all over again is beyond me. But all things are as they should be.

    Very very FAST!:)

    I wanna thank everyone for all the help! LoL!
