Been having inconsistent wifi the entire time I've had mt iPad. Finally took it in to be replaced yesterday. They said they had not heard about the issues and after checking it over, replaced mine with a new one. New pad has same issue (big surprise seeing that it is was probably from the same manufacturing batch as my first one) planning on waiting a month or so to see if they fix it through a firmware update, if not I'll return it again and hopefully get one from a different manufacturing batch.
It's not really bothering me that much, it's annoying that it's not perfect, but i still love my iPad.

Since everything they build is a package, hardware and OS, they are able to put a better customer service behind them because it is complete machine and not built from many different things from unapproved third parties.

I have the same problem. I have to have the brightness slider above minimum for wifi to stay on after sleep. If it's on the minimum then I lose wifi after sleep but can connect again with no problems in settings.

lets see i have apple extreme base station dual band router. i have no problems. i go over to my brothers place where he has a linksys dual band router, i automatically connect and have no issues. i love my iPad and i love being an early adopter.
I think the biggest bonus is the built in GPS on the 3g version BUT i havent had any problems with my IPad locating me on anything location based. its pretty accurate even when im tethered to my phone. so its really your call.

I've only had one problem with the wifi on mine. it happened when I was surfing and dropped in and out (I was 5 feet from my router) it kept asking for the network password. I shutdown and restarted the ipad and its been working fine since.

I have a Netgear Tri-band and have no issues at all. I love this thing to pieces! I'm not even playing with my iPhone anymore! And I don't know about anyone else, but how do you run the battery down on this thing? I can't get it below 30%! I don't even charge it every night. In fact on launch day it had 90% out of the box. The Apple reps said to run the battery down completely then charge it fully. Well I played with it continuously until it was bedtime. I set it to download movies via WiFi (on a pathetically slow hotel connection) overnight. It was continuously downloading over Wifi for 8 hours and in the morning it was at 30%! What the freak! I couldn't believe it.
Me happy. Now all I need is for stupid AT&T to hurry up and start allowing tethering on my iPhone, or someone here figure out how I can jailbreak my iPhone on 3.1.3!

Apple Airport Extreme + iPad 16GB = zero issues for me.

I have no problems with using my Airport Extreme, or the Linksys routers at my office. But, if I am connected via MyWi, when I shut the MyWi down, the iPad will stay stuck on that router, not recognizing that it is no longer available, and fail to switch automatically to the other available routers.

I am one of the lucky ones to own an iPad in the UK. Not trying to make you envious but my choice the WiFi only, as I have an iPhone 3gs and currently use PDANET but it is not working at the moment so trialing MyWi and I am impressed.
I am on a pay as you go sim with T-Mobile with excellent 3g coverage, £10 per month - unlimited text and unlimited internet and you get to use the £10 for calls, 3g ipad why?
Just subscribed to Zinio and Maxim (£7 - $11) no problems with the Zinio reader just flick the pages over no problem very quick. Any ideas for an iPad/iPhone mag, cheap of course?
