    Well, the obvious question would be does it see your router at all? Better yet, does it pick up/log into your router in other areas of the house, yet then drop it when heading to/in the bedroom?

    If so I would probably suspect a hardware issue. I know all three of my iPads are the most sensitive when it comes to picking up a connection. As in, if there's "remotely" a signal out there, it sees it.

    How strong of a signal is depicted on your laptop/iPhone in the bedroom? If fairly strong then I would definitely think hardware issue in your pad.

    Well the iPhone has about a 3 bar signal. The netbook has a 2 bar connection. Now I do have a signal on my iPad but it goes between 1 bar and 2 bars

    So it is connecting in the same place's yet just depicts a weaker signal?

    If so does the iPad function in the same areas utilizing wifi regardless of signal strength?

    Cheers
