    I am having trouble with my wifi connection since updating my IPad to iOS 5.1 causing my connection to be weak or lost completely. Is anyone else having this problem? Any clues as to how to fix this problem?

    Just the usual.

    Restart your router and iPad. While the router is down forget the network (Reset Network Settings under Settings > General > Reset), then join it again after it is up.

    If that does not work, a reset might be worth trying..


    Reset: Hold down the power and home buttons until the Apple logo appears. The iPad will reboot. This usually takes a bit longer than a restart.

    No prob after upgrading iPad 1 and 2, iPhone 4S and touch 4.

    Try resetting your router.

    I am having the exact same problem. I have given it up and am using 3G even though the wifi is fine on my laptop and my iPhone. And yes, I do have the new 5.1 on both the iphone and the ipad. Only the ipad has this problem though

    DEFINITELY an issue with IOS 5.1 and iPad2 wifi connectivity. Wifi disconnects all the time when not using ipad. Go to use it again and YEP only 3G is connected and have to go through the manual reconnecting to the network. SERIOUS PAIN IN DA A$$ and absolutely is an issue with the 5.1 update. Have five ipad2's in my household and every one of them are displaying exact same behavior except for ONE. THat one unit is still at 5.01 IOS and wasnt upgraded as its my 6 year olds since she had it in her room watching cartoons when I updated all the others.

    Needless to say, will not be updating hers until new update!! Rest of us get defaulted to our 3G connections constantly and have to manually reconnect after periods of inactivity.

    Have iPad 3 being delivered by FedEx on March 16 and would suck if the same issue exists the first day of use!!!

    Hopefully Apple knows of this issue!

    Same issue

    Ipad 1 updated earlier today w no problem. Now has jittery online performance. Speed test shows 10+Mb speed. Rebooted iPad. No improvement. ALL web content including news site apps crawl. I think there is something amiss w the OS.

    There must be some variables at work that are creating iOS 5.1 probs for some and not others. My iPad 1 and 2, and iPhone 4S, have been working fine since I upgraded to iOS 5.1.

    On iPad 1 and 2, things have actually been better than fine, because I've barely had any RAM-related crashes on either iPad, which I was frequently having on iOS 5.0.1 and 5. For me, this upgrade has been a big improvement.
