    My iPad does not connect well to wifi at home or at the hotspots I go to unless I restart it. Why do I always have to restart it to work?

    Hi there,

    Have you turned on "Ask to join networks" under Wi-Fi Settings?

    Your best option would be to go to General then Reset and Reset Network Settings.

    The network stack on the iPad has been known to fail to acquire or release DHCP addresses. The issue is not consistent and you may have more trouble with some routers. I would expect this to be improved in 4.2.
    As a temporary work around; instead of a reboot, you can try just disabling/enabling wifi.
