    Hi,
    I seem to be able to browse, download etc ok most of the time, but every now and again my iPad 2 informs me that it's not connected to the Internet, even though the little icon is right there in the top left corner. Turning wifi off then on again within "Settings" seems to sort this out, which isn't a huge hassle but sometimes this can happen every 5 mins for an hour or so. Am I missing something, or may this even be a problem with my wifi connection?
    Hope someone can help Cheers Alex

    Does the same happen to your laptop or no? We need first to exclude Internet connection problem!

    Don't have a laptop, but the house pc is connected via the same connection, and as far as I can tell it only ever happens with that rarely. I had just wondered if anybody else had been having a similar problem. Strangely enough it seems to happen more often after I've just played a game like angry birds.

    yeah i have the same problem and fix it the same way you do, temporarily. In another thread i was reading on here someone was claiming that it was the magnet on the smart cover that was causing the problem.

    When you say Apple's CS, do you mean that I should take it back to the shop or what?

    Also, I do have one of those smart covers fitted. Might be interesting to see if taking it off makes any difference.

    It's nit the smart cover, at least not for me. I got the same problem when it was off. I read in a thread on the apple forums that the iPad may have problems staying connected with routers broadcasting more than just an n network so say like b/g/n/. Still looking for a solution though.

    I have a new iPad 2 which frequently loses it's wifi connection. In the same area where an iBook has no problems. Is this normal?

    I had that problem a couple times and I don't use the smart cover. I just turn it off then back on and it works fine. It's only happened twice in 5 days.
    I have a question: I am getting a Netgear duel band N wireless router tomorrow. Will the iPad 2 work on the 5Ghz band or is it just 2.4?

    Thanks
    Wayne
