I have FiOS and use their router for WiFi. It works perfectly with my iTouch and my work laptop (non-Mac), but my ipad constantly drops its connection. Once drops, it takes multiple retries to connect, and half the time asks me to re-enter my WiFi password. Its so frustrating, Ive stopped using the ipad, which I love otherwise. Any suggestions? iMac Mac OS X (10.6.4)...|wi-fi-drops-ipad

My ipad (iOS3.2.2) sometimes and randomly drops my wifi connection. My iPhone 3GS (iOS 4.1) and Apple TV (silver one with 160GB hard disk) are both fine and dont drop the connection. I use two powerful Netgear WAPs the 330 and the 350. They are both setup identically with the same SSID and WPA2 code. Every now-and-then Im using my ipad and the app tells me that it needs an Internet connection so I have to re connect it to the network. Ive saved the WPA2 code in notes so that i can just c&p it. But I shouldnt have to. Does anyone have any ideas? ipad Other OS iOS 3.2.2...|ipad-drops-wi-fi

There is something wrong with the wifi of my ipad . It drops the signal and the only way for me to get it back is to swich off the wifi then switch it back on. I have to do this about 3 times an hour. My touch will be running on the same hotspot and does not lose the signal . This is an ongoing problem i have had since i bought my ipad. I bought mine the day they went on sale. So i am long suffering with this problem . I have heard lots of talk but no real fix for the ipad wifi problems. I am very disappointed with apple.<Edited by Host> ipad iOS 4 iPod touch...|wifi-drops-signal-ipad

While watching video using Home Sharing wifi connection suddenly drops and switches to 3g. As you know, home sharing only works on wifi so video disappears. As soon as I back out of Home Sharing the wifi signal pops up immediately. Home Sharing does not offer to resume playback so you have to manually find where you left off. Never had any wifi drops before and it only does this while in Home Sharing on the ipad. It does this every time.
