iPad Tip 27 - Connectivity: WiFi Security

Since the release of the iPad, many iPad owners have been experiencing WiFi connectivity issues, especially to networks that use WEP security. Since many routers and access points (such as the Sprint OverDrive mobile hotspot), use WEP security by default, it poses a problem for access on the iPad.

If you are having problems connecting your iPad to your OverDrive or other router via WiFi, you might want to check your router settings and select WPA/WPA2 as the security protocol.
