Result:my ipad keeps going back to home in safari

My ipad (wifi only) running version 4.2.1 FREQUENTLY goes back to the home screen when I using Mail or safari.  I am currently in a temporary location (rental home) which uses a Belkin Wireless G router. The signal is not the greatest (I get 3-4 bars on my ipad and iMac). My iMac isn't experiencing this problem, however I do notice that web pages load more slowly than when I am at home. FYI, at home I have an Airport Extreme connected wirelessly. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance. B...|ipad-frequently-home-screen-mail-safari

Today I received my ipad WI-FI + 3G 64GB but it seems to have a problem with the home key. If I open one of the apps on the home screen and just allow it to open, without using it, I am able to press the home Button and see the home screen once again. If I open an App and use one of these for a while, however, I am not able to go to the home screen after pressing the home button. Whats up? The button doesnt seem to be broken because it works after just opening an app without using it.Thanks for the help,Lou ipad WI-FI + 3G 64GB Mac OS X (10.6.3)...|pressing-home-button-home-ipad

I have used ipad 2 for 8 months without a problem. Last week I had it in Lanzarote and used it wirelessly in hotel.  I returned home a few days ago and ipad and Blackberry will not connect to my home Hub Wi-Fi.  They both show my home network available but will not connect - the disc keeps spinning. I have tried everything from rebooting ipad, router, resetting network on ipad but nothing seems to work.  It cant be a problem with router as another laptop (which didnt go on holiday!) is working fine wirelessly.
