    I have had no problems with WiFi ... there are about 5 hotspots plus my home system I use daily and it connects immediately to each one with no issues.

    Does your problem happen at every wifi spot you go to? Or are you just having problems at home? Try other places and see if it's still a problem.

    ive tried @ home, starbucks, work, church... always the same story. i've tried turning it off and on and sometimes that will fix it. but i shouldnt have to do that whenever i want to connect to wifi imo. at least not for a device of this price point.

    Sounds like you need Tech Support. I agree, you shouldn't have to tolerate that. I also have occasional Wifi hiccups. I'll be on it and then it'll stop working and I'll have to turn it on and off to get it going again. Also happens w/ 3G, too (all times have been in my house where I get a good signal.
