    I updated the ipad with the new version of the OS (or whatever the big update was). It does connect now, but will drop constantly. Hopefully they will get that fixed soon. I can handle it for now as it at least lets me get certain things updated.

    From my understanding, they are still working on the issue, so I would hope a fix is on the way (even though they are probably focused on the issues with the new phone first)..

    Thanks for the help, it seems to have worked.

    Just curious, but do you guys have the ipad wifi, or ipad wifi/3g? Because I read on some apple blogs/forums that the wifi only one does have some issues with connectivity due to the placement of the antenna behind the apple logo, where as the wifi/3g has the antenna on top within the blackstrip, and that somehow has better connectivity as a result.

    Just curious to see what you guys have. Thanks!

    Yeah I read the same article. I find it weird that apple puts antannaes in areas that are easily blocked when using their products

    Open the 3G Mobile Hotspot App
    Click the first button on the bottom of the Droid and then select "Advance"
    Tap on WiFi AP Mode
    Change your security to WEP, create a password and then save

    This worked for me
    Same problem, Switched to WEP and the IPAD connected fine. Thanks.

    iPad and 3g hotspot

    I had trouble connecting at first, too. I had to use an all numeric WEP key before my iPad would connect to my 3G hotspot on the DroidX. My iTouch would connect with an alphanumeric wep key.
