    Turn off your router for a few minutes. While the router is off go to Settings > General > Reset and Reset All Network Settings. When the router is back on line re-join your network.

    This usually works.

    But, there have been reported Safari internet slowdown (not disconnect) problems with the new update. That's been harder to squash. I'm hoping iOS 8.1 will do the job. We'll probably see that sometime towards the end of October along with Apple Pay, new iPads, and the OS X Yosemite roll out.

    That's a guess, just a guess.

    I've also been wondering about the connectivity in IOS8. Especially safari seems to have issues.
    While browsing things slow down and then stop working. Switching to another browser shows, there's still connectivity.
    My Air also keeps mentioning there's no SIM whenever I access internet after not using it for a while (using any app). Maybe there's a relation there where the ipad keeps expecting connectivity via mobile connection?
    And sometimes connectivity halts altogether, only to be fixed by turning off wifi or a reset (home+pwr)
    Never had any issues before IOS8.

    Sorry but your idea didn't work . However found that problem only appears when on 5 Ghz, so disabled it and it now appears to work fine now on 2.4Ghz. BT Homehub5 switches automatically between the two. My wife's iPad mini which is on ISO 8.0 or my iPhone 4s on iOS 8.0 did not have the problem !!!

    I've seen that before. I don't know why it happens. A few years back I had a supposedly robust D-Link router that would not play nice with my iPad at 5 GHz. On the other hand, my Airport Express works fine with my iPad on both bands; as it should.

    My wife and I each have an iPad Air, and have both had problems with wifi since installing iOS 8. I've tried rebooting the iPad, resetting Network settings, resetting the wifi router, and even resetting my iPad back to factory settings and setting it up as a completely new device. Nothing seemed to cure the problem of wifi and application freezes. It is particularly noticeable on the "TuneIn Radio" application, that I use a lot, that simply could not connect.

    I too am using a BT HomeHub5 router, that the iPads automatically connect to the 5Ghz channel on. I have now changed the name of the 5Ghz channel, so I can choose whether to use this or not - well, it appears to have cured the problem!

    If I connect to the 2.4Ghz channel, everything works fine; try the 5Ghz channel and it fails again. I've tried this about a dozen times, and it is consistent. We were both having to reboot our iPads at least every hour due to freezes, but my wife's has been fine for 48hours now on the 2.4Ghz connection.

    I remain convinced that the problem is with iOS 8 - we didn't have this problem with iOS 7 - and hope that someone from Apple reads this, as it may help them identify the issue. In the meantime, this may help others like myself.

    Best wishes

    If you want to give Apple feedback, this link would be more reliable than posting here. Don't expect a personal response.

    http://www.apple.com/feedback/ipad.html

    The other thing you can do is make sure you have Automatic Send turned on in Settings > Privacy > Diagnostics & Usage. There is another switch for developers if you want to help them improve their apps.

    If anyone would like to explain to me how to disable/change the 5GHZ setting that would be just peachy.
