Greetings and thanks in advance for any advice I have an ipad 2 64 Gigabyte WiFi + Cellular ipad, though I have never actually bothered to activate the cellular. It is currently running 6.0.1. I've had my ipad for about a year and a half and have used it quite "promiscuously" in that I take it practically everywhere and connect to multiple routers frequently. As far as I can remember, I've had the same problem with every router. I skype with my fiance for 2-3 hours at a time and my ipad drops wifi every 15-30 minutes or so, long enough to interrupt and drop the call. When this irritates me enough, i usually resort to using my iphone 4 (same version os) to skype with her and never have a problem. So far I've disconnected and reconnected routers, power cycled my ipad, even tried changing channels on the router, but all to no avail. Please, any suggestions? Thanks again!

Do you have the encryption set to WPA2?
Do you have it configured to DHCP ?
