Why does my iPad2 w/updated os constantly disconnect from my tethearded iPhone wifi connection? I'm starting to question paying for the upgrade that allows the tethering. Any help or suggestions would be appreciated.

Tethering through the carrier (AT&T). But after searching a few other sites I did get some helpful advise, which was to deactivate my bluetooth on the iPhone. After doing that earlier I've stayed connected all day. Of course that means I could not use my BT earpiece. No big deal for me as I'd not likely be tethering much while needing BT.

Battery life on the iPad seems to suffer when tethering, but since getting the current OS that's also been an issue. I'm open to any other suggestions and thanks for the help.
