    I'm up to owning three ipads now all used 16gb and all of them at some point will not connect to a network. Belkin routers seem to cause it more. Settting ip to static or the reverse seems to fix it but its very annoying.

    Ipad has been out for a while and theynstill have not fixed thia issue. And i have tried this with some pretty popular routers.

    Just curious as to what firmware you are running on them?

    I use WiFi at mainly at home and use 3G when not home. I use a Netgear N AP (not set as a router) and have ZERO issues. I am running 3.2 and am holding off upgrading mainly because I see WiFi issues being discussed more than I think is appropriate.

    Apparently this is not a problem with Cisco/Linksys routers. My wife and I both use our home wireless routers (WRT54G2) without issue.

    You also may want to check that none of your neighbors are using the same wifi channel as you. Android has a great App for this.

    I use a Linksys (Cisco) E3000 and have no problems what so ever. My sister was using a Netgear and I had to change it out to a Linksys and have had no problems since.

    Hey Fatal, by any chance do you have a computer near you that's running an extra monitor?

    Just asking.
