    Is anyone also experiencing weaker wifi connection since upgrading to iOS 5.0.1? I had previously used iOS 4.3.3 and the wifi connection is much stronger... Hmm...

    Connect your iPad to your PC/Mac, making sure you have downloaded the latest version of iTunes first, then follow the onscreen instructions.
