Apple iPad Users Reporting wi-fi Issues [news.bbc.co.uk]
Some owners of the newly-available iPad have reported problems with connecting their devices to wi-fi.

Hundreds have complained about weak signals on the tablet computer.

Apple acknowledged on its support page that "under certain conditions, iPad may not automatically rejoin a known wi-fi network".

It offered a fix, but suggested that it was a router issue, despite some users saying that other devices worked fine on the same wi-fi connection.

It's hard to get a signal through that solid piece of heavy duty aluminum...

This is why you never buy the first version of anything. Early adopters are the guinea pigs of technology.

Mr. Cat is right. This did not seem to be as true of Apple in years past, but now, alas, v1.00 for everyone is problematic.

My understanding in that the wireless radio/antenna is under the plastic apple logo on the back. That should eliminate the going through aluminum issue. Must be some other problem.
