Got my A1 about a week ago and spent a couple of days just looking it over and playing with whatever came stock in the unit. I didn't have a router so I couldn't get online immediately, but I was able to detect several WiFi signals (of my neighbors) thru the walls. I was able to connect to my PC and copy some photos, and some spreadsheets, just to try the image viewing tools that came with it, and the Docs-to-go. At this point, without having gotten online yet, I was pretty happy with the A1. So on day 3, I drive myself over to a nearby WalMart, and for $30 I get myself a Belkin N-150 wireless router. I set this up so my PC remains hard-wired to my cable modem (thru the router) but now I can also connect with the Ideapad. The signal showed in my A1 as "Excellent", and I was able to set up my email, and log in to a few sites to test the operation of my new toy! I was pretty happy... for a minute or two... until I noticed that I my wifi kept disconnecting and reconnecting... about every 30 seconds or so. The actual disconnect time was about 5 seconds so I was able to surf the web and download a few apps, and the few seconds of unconnected time went unnoticed at first because the download or web surfing would just pause and restart as soon as the connection restored itself. Uncertain why this was happening, and being new to WiFi technology, I started reading forum messages and found others had experienced this as well, but there was no posted solution. So next I looked for wi-fi tools that might shed some light. I found this... WiFi Analyzer... https://market.android.com/details?id=com.farproc.wifi.analyzer&hl=en This was pretty neat. It showed me what channels my A1 had best reception on (and I set my Belkin router to that channel) and it also showed the WiFi disconnect every 35 seconds, but now I was able to see that when it lost my routers signal, it also lost my neighbors WiFi signals too, so the problem was not my router dropping out. My search for WiFi tools continued... until i found this... WiFi Static... https://market.android.com/details?id=com.farproc.wifi.statIc&hl=en This was also pretty neat. It set up a static IP... did all the work... and now I have a steady WiFi connection at home with no more 5 second dropouts every 30 seconds. Once again, after a few brief moments of concern, I am happy with my A1.
