    Good to hear from you. You’ll find a whole bunch of iPad enthusiasts in this Forum who are only too willing to help other iPad owners and to hear of their experiences. Don’t be afraid to post any questions you may have or use the ‘Search’ button near the top of the Forum web page. I usually find I discover one new interesting and useful piece of information about my iPad every day - and often not even what I was looking for!!

    Hope to hear from you soon with your thoughts about the iPad.

    Have fun and enjoy your iPad

    I saw your suggestions for routers, so I'm certain you'll soon get some good advice. Most of the problems members have experienced with routers have been due to outdated firmware so, if you're purchasing a new router you should be in good shape.

    If you don’t already have it you can download a copy of the iPad manual for free.

    Am I right assuming that you already have broadband at home? If so, you must have already an ADSL modem installed, so this is not something to worry about. Any wifi router will work for you, if you already have the ADSL modem.

    However, there are a few things to consider. The modem usually only has 1 ethernet output, which will be connected to the wifi router. So unless the wifi router also has a second ethernet output, you would have to connect the computer via Wifi as well.

    Anyway, most wifi routers should work with the iPad, but if you are looking for something that just works, then Apple's AirportExpress is a good wifi router. Especially if you intend to also stream music wiressly to speakers.

    For what it's worth, I have the following routers and both work flawlessly with my wifi iPad:

    Linksys WRT160N: A couple of years old, but good performance. This will work fine for most homes and small businesses, but I found that I needed a little more range so I could connect from my hammock in the back yard so...

    Cisco E4200: This thing rocks! I have a large home but I can get a solid connection from anywhere on my property.

    You first need to make sure that you only need a router or one with a build-in modem. Where I live I need the modem as well. I suggest you look for an ASDL model that has 4 Gigabyte ethernet ports. That way you can, if you want, connect your computers, etc. Also via cable and so increase the speed.

    Hello, I just bought an Ipad 2 before traveling to Korea and through my travels the Ipad worked fine and connected in every wifi location until I moved into my residence and hooked up a cisco wifi router. My ipad found a connect but continued to drop after every 15 mins or so. My boyfriend has the exact same ipad execpt mine is 3g chip and wifi capable his is just wifi but his has never lost a connection. All of our computers, iphones, itouches, and ipods connect as soon as you enter the house but not my ipad 2. I shipped the ipad back to the states hoping they would find a soulution to the connectivity problem but my friend said as soon as she opend the box and tunred the ipad on it was connected in her house. Anyone herd of this problem? SHe said it is probably my router but why does my boyfriends connect and not mine? What is the best router so that I can get connected no problems? Please help!
