Are you having Wi-Fi connection problems with your iPad?

Dieter mentioned this in the hardware section of our iPad review, but we've seen enough reports (and gotten enough email about it!) that we wanted to break it out and see how widespread a problem this may be for our readers:

Speaking of that aluminum casing, it blocks WiFi signals pretty effectively. To get around that, Apple placed the WiFi antenna behind the plastic Apple logo. While all reports indicate it’s a good antenna, I do find that I’m getting slightly worse reception on the iPad than I do on other devices.

iPad not charging via USB? Make sure you're using a high-power port

If your iPad isn't charging properly via USB cable, try changing the port you've got it plugged in to. Turns out iPad requires more power to charge than iPhone or iPod touch, and not all USB ports are powered equally (some are branched off, like hubs). This is especially true of laptops, including MacBooks. Could be front vs. back, left vs. right side, just keep trying until you find a high-power USB port that does the job.

How-to fix the iPad "App Store is not supported in your country" error for international users

If you're an international user who just picked up an iPad in the US and want to get some apps via the on-device App Store app, you 're out of luck: "Cannot Connect to the App Store. The App Store is not supported in your country"

That's what you'll get if you synced via iTunes on your Windows PC or Mac using an international account, like Canada, Australia, UK, etc. and then try to use the iPad App Store app.

Of course, you can just keep on syncing via iTunes but for the convenience of the on-device downloads, you'll need a work-around.
