    Both the 16 and 32gb Touch pads, the WIFI turns off and on all the time while browsing.......... very annoying why is this ?

    My 32gb lost wifi all the time out of the box. Once i updated the os to 3.0.2 it has yet to drop it. It took a very long time of me clicking on the update box. but, im at 2 days now with no wifi drop when i used to be once an hour. I
    used to have to restart the device because i was unable to reconnect to my wifi via top right slot wifi reset. I hope it works for you since that was my only downside to this, till the update fixed it.

    Is it shutting off when the screen is on or off?

    I got a 16GB one from BB on Sunday and the wifi has been solid and haven't had one drop before or after the update.

    I'm in the middle of reading something on the web and all of a sudden the WiFi shuts off and I get a white screen "You must be connected to a Network to use this application"
    then the WiFi comes back on.

    Is it showing a strong signal on your screen?

    You have a crappy router. I had that problem while using my friend's wifi, using my own wifi was stable.

    I have a problem where I'm still connected to my wifi network, but I don't get internet until I turn it off, and on again. Now, my router has some issues ( I need to unplug it every 24-72 hours), but my other devices (3 laptops, current nexus s + previous pre- that is no longer with us, RIP) don't do that. They simply stay connected, and work.

    I have this too yet it works fine all day long at work on my unsecured work network so I am certain it's my home router settings. I saw a thread elsewhere about this that recommends some home router setting changes to try....do a search here on precentral.

    It could be your router as well or like someone say try to update it to the latest firmware version!

    Don't use TKIP cipher if you can help it. That's what fixed it for me.
