    I have the wi fi version. Does anyone else with this model have issues with the wi fi dropping? It's connected, then before i do anything it's gone. Sometimes it will be there for 10 mins or so then gone again. (i have a router in the house so is my own connection not a cafe or anything like that)

    Also I downloaded some pics from my facebook album onto my ipad, they put them in all one album and I want them in different albums and to name them.

    Any help would be appreciated, I am using a pc with vista cause I didn't realize that I can't plug in the ipad into my mac with os10.4.11. :(

    Thanks

    The iPad has been said to have spotty WiFi, that said I use an Airport Express here and the iPad works like a charm. Make sure your Router has the latest firmware.

    Common problem. I restored my OS last week and I don't know if it's a coincidence but my wifi hasn't dropped since.

    Do you think that will improve with a OS update?

    What is an Airport Express? How do I update firmware? The router is connected to the Mac.

    Thanks!

    You mean you restored the iPad OS? To factory settings or just network settings?

    All problems of this nature should be resolved with iOS 4.0. We can only wait and see.

    The iPad OS update is scheduled for 'this fall'.

    My wifi works perfectly with my AirPort Extreme Base Station at home. Also works perfect with a very old Linksys WRT54G at my parents house.

    I did have some spotty wifi when visiting a family member at a hospital this week but that's the only time so far. It still worked 90% of the time, and knows to know if that's their wireless AP's or the iPad itself.

    The only way you can orginize pictures for the iPad is to do them on your computer and sync thru iTunes.. I know a pain. And the wifi drops usually happen on certain wifi encryption pass codes and should be fixed with os4 in the fall. I never drop connection on an open network and regular WEP password.
