    I've joined to forum to seek information on two topics:

    Best Office application for iPad2
    Wi-Fi connection issues

    I'm an Adjunct Professor at Virginia Western Community College and hope to use my iPad2 for lecture preparation/editing, thus the query regarding the best Office suite for iPad2. I use extensive powerpoint presentations, MS Word documents and occasional MS Excel files.

    My issues with Wi-Fi pertain to the need to continually reset my wireless router to facilitate the iPad Wi-Fi connection. The iPad2 seems to lose its marbles between sessions. I will be connected, set the iPad down for a while and then resume using it and the Wi-Fi connection is gone and I am unable to reconnect. I then go to my router, cycle power and then most times am able to re-connect - very frustrating.
