wifi keeps cutting in and out
the wifi on my transformer keeps cutting in and out. I'm within 10 feet of the router - haven't had any problems with other devices - incredible - desktop- laptop - etc - Can't even sign into amazon app store because it keeps refreshing. Could it be an encryption setting?

Is it cutting out when you're using it or when the screen goes off? (like is it cutting out if you are streaming something, or only if it goes idle)
I noticed that the transformer is pretty quick to disconnect from the internet once my screen goes off, but I haven't had any issues with it disconnecting when I needed it. You can change the wifi settings so that it will always stay on, but this will kill your battery since the device will never go to sleep.
If you're having issues with it disconnecting when the screen is on, try erasing that network from the tablet memory and then resetting it.
Also, do you have any Mac's connected to your wifi network? I always notice when my brother visits with his macbook pro it plays hell with my wifi connection on other devices. I have no idea why this is.I'm a tech junkie with a weak spot for Good Music, Good Beer, and Excellent Coffee.
that's so much for your quick response and help. I tried on one of those other forums and they just told me to buy a new router. (BTW Netgear less than 4 months old)
no I have wifi always on and am having that issue - no Apple products around - tips on erasing that network?

Select forget. Then scan again and enter your password. If that doesn't work, try connecting it to another network and see if you have the same issue. If you're having the same issue on multiple networks, chances are good that there is some issue with your device, either software or hardware.. If it connects fine to those other networks, you might just need to edit your router settings.
What security encryption do you use on your router? WEP/WPA2 etc?I'm a tech junkie with a weak spot for Good Music, Good Beer, and Excellent Coffee.

I don't have this problem. I have a problem with the wifi sometimes doesn't reconnect after the screen has gone off. I have to turn wifi off and on again and it works.
Have you tried the transformer with a different router? Maybe a friend or neighbors wifi connection? If it keeps happening with a different wifi zone then you know its the transformer and not the router. Also try turning all the wireless devices off in your house and the use it see if anything changes?
Good luck buddy.
