    No, I haven't ever had my wi-fi drop completely. I honestly don't see a huge difference in speed when my connection lacks a little bit. Right now my router is on the top floor ( only because it's hooked to my main pc), and I'm on the opposite side of my house on the middle floor. My connection is about 65-75%. I just find it odd that it never can achieve full connection!

    This morning I lost all Internet connection it is now 1 pm and the Internet just started again! I love the iPad but it can be stressful. I reset all my settings and shut the springboard down. I have tried everything. I hope this is not going to be an expensive fix. I have a small fortune invested in this iPad. JJ


    Good luck everyone!

    It sounds like the same home setting as mine-however, I am on the third floor and my router is 1st on the opposite side of the home. We just put in a new addition to our home, which creates more obstacles for the wifi signal to pass and connect. Brick walls, steel, other devices interfering all can contribute to reducing the signal. I do not know the actual wifi percentage for my iPad, but do reach about 80% with my droid phone. Whatever the percentage is for my iPad, I am pleased for what it does for me.

    Depending on the size of your home, that would be about right in those circumstances actually. Based on personal experiences you're not likely to have a full signal unless you're pretty close to the AP or directly under it.
