    Meh, iOS 4.2gm installed on iPad, iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, iPhone 3g and iPod touch 2ng gen., No issues with wifi on any of them.



    They connect to both WPS-PSK and WEP networks on a daily basis, no dropouts whatsoever.

Turning WiFi off then on again usually solves the problem for about a minute before the Internet's gone again. No problems in areas of good signal, however. I'm glad they're going to fix it before releasing, as anyone would be foolish to release software with such an obvious, detrimental bug.



    You're OBVIOUSLY not holding it right.

    It's ridiculous how long this update is taking!



    Get a grip, the update was announced for november. Its the 12th today, 18 days till December by all the rumours its right on schedule for a November release. What a moaning minnie.

    There's 30 days in November. If Apple had said 12th November then it got delayed then i could understand people taking a view. Why not go outside, have a beer, relax, it's the weekend.

    Just don't complain that way.

    A killer bug like this one is every release's nightmare. It is good that they caught it before it reached the public. Now I am pretty sure iOS4.2 is going to be a great release!

    If Apple delays a software release because of last minute bugs, it's better to fix them, then release, right?

    iTunes update has been released. I assume this means the iOS update will be right behind it in a couple of days.

    Connection just hangs. I'll load up Pandora with full wifi reception and it won't play. The NPR app won't update the news items. Et cetera. Sporadically starts working again, but then hangs later. Meanwhile, my iPhone and macs all access the net just fine. Something is definitely up.

    This is exactly what I'm experiencing.
