iPad Loses WiFi
For months now, my iPad has been losing its WiFi connection (although it shows that it is connected). My iPhone and notebook are connected to the same router and have no issues.
I'm running 4.2.1 and it's not jailbroken.
Any suggestions? Thanks

Mine does this. I have concluded that the iPad has a crappy wifi antenna. It's not half as good as my cell phone's wifi, and I'll be using it literally 10 feet (through a door) from my wifi router. No idea why it's so bad. Other devices (cell phone, PS3, computer) are picking up great wifi signal throughout the house.
Sometimes when I tilt the iPad in a different direction it works better... which is annoying.

I had the same problem when I got my IPAD and with my iPHONE 4. I ended up re-boot my router (Linksys E3000 on 802.11N/5 GHz) several times and it would work for a couple of days then not connect or loose the connection. I then decided to update my router's firmware and I haven't had a problem since. I even have 2 other WIFI devices operating on the same mode and have had no problems with all 3 operating at the same time since I updated the firmware.
