Personal backstory: It's been 2 weeks since I bought my iPad so had to make the decision today. After a morning of dropouts we decided to head down to the Apple store to see if there was a fix in the works, and if not, return it. The Apple store told us that it was due to our Verizon Actiontec router and that we needed to contact Verizon. So, we called Verizon tech support while at the Apple store. Verizon acknowledged it was a new and known "problem" but said they had no solution at this time. Since neither Apple nor Verizon could offer support, we decided to return the iPad. While we were at the Apple store another woman was trying to return her iPad. Unfortunately she did not have the original packaging, and the manager told her she was out of luck. So if you're going to return, keep your packaging! Meanwhile a google search turned up these new articles. "Princeton network engineers have officially blamed the iPad's OS rather than the device itself" http://www.tgdaily.com/mobility-features/49402-princeton-isolates-ipad-wifi-problems Original paper, with tech details of the issue: http://www.net.princeton.edu/announcements/ipad-iphoneos32-stops-renewing-lease-keeps-using-IP-address.html We both loved using the iPad. Hopefully they will resolve the issue soon.
