Ok so ill connect to my wireless router, then ill have a great connection as I am 5-8 feet from my router. I will then spontaneously lose the connection and it will say incorrect password or wep key or w/e.

Has anyone seen this problem or know how to fix it?

I'm running in to the same problem.

So received my iPad in the mail after a 2 week wait I have the 64 3G model. I connected my verizon fios router to it with the version set up password. I have a Mac book, my iPhone, a windows pc, and a wifi printer. For all of them I have had no connectivity issues. The iPad asked for the password to connect and within about 10 minuets it asked for the password again. So I would go to an app that requires web access and it would not load so I would have to go back to safari to reconnect. So after running in to the problem over and over I went through the apple suggestion for a fix. I changed for wep to wpa which, I had to call verizon to get the password for the router. The. Ice thing was I was able to pick my own password that was easy to remember. I then updated the password for all my other devices with the new password. Still no fix, so I called apple and the rep came to the conclusion that I had a bad iPad. I set up an appointment with the local apple store and they just ran a test and gave me a new iPad. So I'm typing on it at home today and after about an hour I have had 1 instance where it asked for the password again. I will update to let you all know if it was the iPad was bad or if was a bigger problem. The apple rep seemed to have a rash of this problem
