Exact same issue here, except AT&T iPhone 4. This is my first attempt at WiFi tethering, so I should be able to try somewhere else to see if it is an interference issue. In the mean time I'm connecting via Bluetooth and it seems stable, although I'm not getting anything pushed to my iPad. I don't know if that's a limitation of Bluetooth tethering or tethering in general.iPad 2

I think you are running into the following issue.
Note: If you leave the Personal Hotspot screen or put iPhone to sleep, iPhone only broadcasts the Wi-Fi network for an additional 90 seconds. If no devices join the Wi-Fi network during that time, iPhone 4 stops broadcasting your Wi-Fi network. You can start broadcasting your Wi-Fi network again by tapping Settings > Personal Hotspot.
So, if I understand correctly, if you you leave your iphone on the the Settings --> Personal Hotspot screen, than it shouldn't disconnect.

I have the exact same problem on my AT&T iPhone4. I figured out that if I have bluetooth on, my wifi connection from my laptop to my iphone keeps dropping and reconnecting. Impossible to keep a reliable connection up. But if I shut off bluetooth the wifi connection works perfectly.

I have found, now with some experience away from work, that the WiFi hotspot works flawlessly everywhere but at my desk... Must be some kind of interference. Figures... Good news is Bluetooth is solid, which just means a few extra steps when transitioning from home to office.
