    Ok so it has linked into my wifi at home, says signal is excellent and device is connected, however cant even load a web page 25% and it times out. cant transfer digital copies to the tab, and anything web related (email, updates, market, etc) will not work. It did when i brought it home...... I turned every other wifi device in the house off and still nothing. WTF? My phone can link without issue to the network. Anyone have some advice???

    I do not have one, but two things i would try. First i would throw it in airplane mode and then bring it back out to see if that works. If not then i would restart it.

    My Xoom is downloading everything faster versus my Droid X. I did a speed test and the Xoom got 20M download and the Droid X got 6M. Both upload are cap at 1M.

    My Droid X also seems to have problems holding onto the wi-fi, while my Xoom barely loses it. Something might be wrong with yours. Just take it back for an exchange.

    I had the same issue the first day I got the XOOM. The fix for me was simple and one it took me a day to figure out.

    Powercycle your router. Take the power cord out, leave it out for 90 seconds and then plug it back in. It will power back up and your devices should connect again. I had never needed to do this before when connecting a new device, but for whatever reason, this fixed it for me. WiFi is blazing fast even compared to using WiFi on my Droid X.

    Could be an IP address conflict, and the suggestion by unknowndroid will certainly fix that issue.
