    Been experimenting for past 5 days. I have airport express N, airport extreme N, airport extreme N dual band.

    What finally fixed issue was using my airport express N set to 802.11N 5 ghz only! Use wpa2, turned OFF ask to join networks option on iPad.

    No longer get connection lost messages, and all bars wifi all the time.

    That's cool, but doesn't that hose devices that can't handle N? Like iPhones and older Macs? Plus, how many people are actually saturating the bandwidth of N with an iPad? In other words, is it really worth it over just running it in B/G mode?

    Have 2 Wireless Routers in the house, but with different names. While dual band (b and g), the b is turned off. Just enough signal in the living room to cause problems so I told the iPad to forget the basement router (#2). That should resolve the issue.
