I ended up not returning my wifi iPad because I had another project come up and a customer said he would buy it off of me when I'm done. The wireless issue is beyond frustrating in the meantime waiting for my 3G. I'm sitting in a hotel waiting to go into a weekly meeting in an hour. I'm trying to get all my material on the iPad. My Macbook connects perfectly fine to the wireless, as does my iPhone. My iPad sitting next to me at the table is struggling to load an app. I needed Numbers on it so I've been waiting 25 minutes for it to download from the App store. I realize I could sync it but no cable with me. If I could tether the Macbook to the pad in situations like this it would help. The laptop is very fast on the wireless. I bet the wireless signal strength is a battery issue, maybe if you jailbreak it you can crank up the wattage.
