    Well I was loving it for almost two days but all the sudden today my Wi-Fi stoped working on my new iPad 2 - 16GB WiFi. Actually happened when I was browsing macrumors.

    Reset the device and it came back but in about 5 mins it had the same issue. Now after several reboots it just has a grayed out WiFi in the left pane of the settings. Next to it it says "No Wi-Fi".

    I don't have my Mac with me so I haven't been able to try a restore but I have a strong feeling it's a hardware problem. Any ideas for troubleshooting? I'm hoping that the Apple store has some stock hidden away for service issues like this, I doubt they have service replacement iPads yet.

    Anyone else having this issue?

    Is the rest of your network functioning correctly?

    Thanks for the replies. Network is good. Posted from my iPad 1 and my iPhone is talking with the network fine.

    Tried the reset network settings but had no luck. Good suggestion though. Forgot about that setting.

    Weird. You didn't accidentally switch it to airplane mode by chance?

    Yep, already made my appt for tomorrow morning before the store opens. I just hope they have stock for a replacement or a service replacement.

    Bummer, but I'll survive.

    Replaced

    FYI. Went to the Apple store today and had the unit replaced. Unfortunately they were unable to flll my request of upgrading to the 32GB. Oh well, might try to return later if they get then in stock.
