Trying to figure out if this is just coincidence...
Downloaded JB day of release. Since that day, have to reconnect iphone to my Wifi Network each time I pick the phone back up. Same thing seems to be happening with our un-jailbroken iPad yet our regular laptops have no issue. Just wondering if anyone else is having similar problems or am I victim to Comcast yet again?

Is it not designed to work that way to save power. It disconnects when the device goes to sleep.

Let me give a little more detail...

When I pick the phone back up for normal internet use, I'm unable to navigate to any web content. I show a full wifi connection, but in order to connect, I have to disconnect my network, re-connect, and re-input password. Only then can I begin normal internet use. Extremely frustrating.

Sounding more and more like a Comcast issue.
