    When my Pre contract with Sprint expired, I went with an Android phone, and frankly, I'm very pleased with it and wasn't missing WebOS at all. I was now in the market for a tablet, and I waited for the Touchpad reviews before deciding what to do. After reading so many of the poor reviews, I decided to go for a Galaxy Tab 10.1. Funny, but at Best Buy I could not stomach the aspect ratio of the Tab. Fortunately, they had a Touchpad there and I was smitten! WebOS really shines on a tablet, and I really could find myself multitasking much more than I did on a Smartphone. Needless to say I bought one and I'm back with WebOS!

    I almost returned it, however, as I was having a terrible time with my wifi connection using a DLink router. Once I switched over to a Cisco router, my problems disappeared, and I'm loving it now. Yes, I'm looking forward to some improvements, but it's performing fairly well.

    Looking forward to a homebrew patch or something that would let me tether it over bluetooth someday! Yes, I do miss freetether, and can't root my Droid :-(

    Glad you like your touchpad. For some reason DLink routers and webOS don't mix. My sister has a DLink router and if I don't turn off wifi on my Pre when I am visiting her it runs my Pre's battery down in just a few hours.

    I have tried D-Link routers and network cards for my home network and have had trouble getting them configured properly. This is with PC's, TabletPC's, and PocketPC's in the past. I am on my third Lynksys router now and never had trouble getting any of them working correctly.

    The only issue I hope they have corrected in the newer models is to have them initially configured with security and p/w protection 'on.' My pre-Cisco versions were open out of the box. Too many people left them like that.
    regards,

    Classic reaction to the reviews.

    -Reviews say its horrible
    -I'm not getting one
    -Plays with it
    -Walks away with the TouchPad in hand

    I guess my tweet was completely correct

    I have a Linksys WRT150N b/g/n and it is easy as pie and customer service helped set it up in a jiffy ...the other day I couldn't get service in the kitchen, so I went to the office and I shut off the power supply to the router and waited count of ten and turned it back on ...it reset itself without a burp ...all is well, good service throughout the house ...I have never had trouble with this thing over around 2 years... Pre3 hooks right up, touchpad is still in the box ...lazy me...

    ...battery, that is ...

    It runs down with data on but I lowered the brightness and used mode switcher to turn off data on lots of stuff and leave wifi on ...no problem and battery is ~65% in the morning if not charging...
