    Anybody here having wifi problems same as mine? Mine never recognize/saves the wifi network. I need to connect it manually every single time. i have no other problems. Mine has a good range of wifi, doesnt disconnect.

    Ive seen the 3 symptoms by apple but which of those are mine? Should zi bring it back?

    You could try a fresh restore to see if anything went wrong with the software or take it in to Apple and see what they think.

    Try entering your details for your wifi in the other section when prompted to select from the router list. Mine would disconnect and keep asking for the wireless password. After manually entering the details my iPad has maintained the connection and has remembered the password.

    :D I'm not sure but this is a fix. I've had no problems since I did this and it's been stable. When you press the blue button next to your wifi it now says 'forget network' but before it didn't say that. It's obviously not remembering and storing the password when you select the router from thr drop down list.

    Let me know if it remains stable this way! :)

    Your method worked but i did some resetting of the router through 192.168.0.1 and now it recognizes the wifi even without your method. I think its just that the ipad is having problems with routers

    Thanks for the response. I'm trying to isolate the problem further and I believe it is a router problem and the way the iPad communicates with the router as well.

    At least you didn't have to take it back, which wouldn't have solved the problem any way IMO. :)
