    It seems like my IPad 2 just sits and grinds when trying to access the Internet (after several accesses). An IPad restart solves the problem, my laptop doesn't experience the same issue. Any thoughts?

    Do you have thee latest software update? How is your router set up sometimes a reboot of the router will clear things up. Try forgetting your network and then re-connecting from iPad settings panel.

    I found that my router firmware wasn't up to date. Once I did that, wifi on my ipad2 became more stable.

    To add to the great ideas that the other posters have suggested, one of our other moderators suggested this for a similar problem..

    =====================


    This has resolved many issues and worth a try.
    -*
    - 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.*
    -*

    Tom,

    Thanks,

    Worth a try, do you know is there a way to get a list of networks and passwords, before I blow them away?

    Only for jail broken devices that I am aware of... There are a couple in Cydia depending on your router I think.
