My wifi connection keeps dropping out

32 gig wifi new iPad purchased last week

After working fine for nearly a week, my iPad can no longer sustain a wifi connection. It keeps fading in and out. When I try to reconnect it says cannot connect to my home network. Anybody else had this problem?

I tried rebooting the iPad, resetting my cable modem etc. nothing works. My laptop and I touch connect just fine.

Try resetting your network settings. (general > reset > reset network settings)
I had this problem as well (restored iPad 2 backup) and it seems to have been fine so far since doing that.

I had this same issue this morning and thought it was Starbucks. 32 GB Wi-Fi here too. I'll try resetting the network settings and see if it gets any better.
