    Tried the brightness trick - no joy. Changed from WEP to WPA and all is good. Strange that my iPhone worked fine on WEP!

    best solution for Wifi Disconnect is to setup a Static IP address for the iPad, and reserve that address in your router's DHCP table using the Wifi MAC Address. had this problem of sporadic disconnects and resolved it accordingly.

    My problem is similar. When I power on my Ipad it automatically connects to my Wifi network, but when I try to use Safari I get a message that it cannot open the page because it is not connected to the internet, but my laptops work fine.
    Apple say it is because my router is set to use WEP as the wireless security mode, (I am using a Siemens router on Talktalk). Its only other option is security mode WPA-PSK/WPA2-PSK and that doesn't work either.
    I can get the Ipad to work properly and access the net only if I disable the Wifi network ecurity mode altogether, making my network available to any passing user!!

    Too bad!
    Doesn't do it here, no matter how i tweak luminosity.
    It'll rather need some software fix. From Apple or from the Wifi provider... something must be done. My wife needs to download her emails and some softs for her job.

    You should note that you are reading a thread that is five months old and hasn't had a new post for over two months. Apple released an update to the iPad OS (level 3.2.1) on July 15th. This level fixed a number of reported WiFi problems.

    If you haven't updated your iPad OS please do so (the latest is 3.2.2). If you are running the latest OS and still have problems then please start a new thread with details on what router you are using, how it is configured, does it have the latest router microcode, exactly what problem you are having, etc. With this sort of information perhaps some useful advice can be given yo you.
