It can't just be Wireless N. I'm using a D-Link modem/router in one (DSL 2640B) that doesn't even have 802.11n, just b and g, and both my iPhone 4 and my girlfriend's iPad 2 drop internet connection like it's hot. It only has 2.4GHz setting and some other rate settings that I don't know what to set to... I'm still going to enable the WMM and see what happens and I'll post back here in a couple days.
Anyone else having this problem that doesn't use Wireless N?
Yep, using belkin surf,have tried skipping router and using internet sharing through airport but still no connection,only had this prob since updating to latest ios. why is apple so stubborn at accepting they stuffed up!!???,feels like i've gone back to windows era,at least microshaft fest up and made a patch, hurry the F up apple
Ok, on my D-link router, I've turned off "54g Protection" and set the 54g mode to "54g performance." 54g protection supposedly allows 802.11b devices to co-exist on the same network as newer modes, but I don't think anyone has those devices anymore so turning it off might help. So far, it's been more stable--no drops for a few hours now. Will post back later.
I've done a lot of searching. And I have played around with a lot of settings. On non-apple routers, I found the issue is iOS and handling of DHCP.
Without trying to "tweak" any router settings, merely making IP reservations in the router's DHCP settings, I have completely eliminated any issues with any of my iOS devices. This is iPads (1 and 2) and iPhones (3G). This IS a known issue (searh Google for Princeton iOS DHCP - they are working with Apple on it).
I have had no issues with my Airport Extreme. Only with non Apple routers. No issue with Android or Windows devices.
Most every message talks about changing router settings, and that is all well and good in some cases. But, what about when I use WIFI at a public location? Am I supposed to tell every restarant and coffe shop that they need to make changes so that my Apple iPad can use their WIFI? Heck no. This needs to be addressed by Apple at the iDevice level, not at the outer level. I connect to at least 10 WIFI routers daily which I have no control over, and I'm sure I'm not alone.
Apple please start getting involved in this disscusion and give us some answers.
I had the same described problems with my iPad 2 Wifi 32gb connecting the Wifi (interruptions), I have AVM Fritz!Box 3270 as a router. Fortunately I found an easy solution: I just made an update of the routers firmware (just check the routers website for further information. It`s not that complicated, normally you have to run a specific website with a device (laptop) within the network.)
After the update everything worked perfect!
By using the special website entering the router firmware you also have the possibility to check which devices are within the wifi network and you can choose to give a fix IP to your iPad, this might help, too.
After the same problems with my ipad, I took it back to the Apple store (not from where I bought it).
The first time I had them re set the ipad to it's out of box state and after this it worked fine for a week.
I again went back to the store and they changed it for a new one. That was two months ago and I have
had no further problems.
The answer is, take it back to an Apple store and ask for another ipad.
ipad2--did the upgrade apple sent out---now have wifi issues on both my ipads---called support----got escalated up 2 levels only to be told I need to call them back---they acted like they had no knowledge of this problem---told them to read their own web page----there are 1000s of people with their hair on fire---going to the store tonight to demand answers or a refund
Long story short:
I can connect my iPad 2 to Linksys E3200 in N only mode 5GHz but as mentioned I have to enable WMM.
But when WMM is enabled the AirPlay connection between iPad 2 and my new Apple TV 3G won't work.
I have to wait maybe 30 seconds for the iPad display to get synced to the Apple TV 3G.
But the connection is very very slow, swipes across the screen are not recognized on the TV at all, there isn't any movement.
Airplay Mirroring with Real Racing 2 is not possible at all, seems like Apple TV 3G is freezing.
Even if I want to play music it does not work!
I hear every 5 seconds a small outtake of the musik I attempting to stream from my iPad 2 to the Apple TV 3G...
The only solution is to disable WMM... but guess what... iPad 2 is not able to connect with N network 5GHz anymore
Why I'm not using mixed mode? Because the AirPlay Mirroring of Real Racing 2 has long response times, the game is stuttering every second and is freazing every 10 seconds... unplayable...
