Touchpad Wifi issues

Having some connectivity problems with your Touchpad?  I have noticed some stability issues with my wifi in both Web OS and Android.  Pretty sure I can attribute the problem to this:

 Does the Wi-Fi network use a compatible router? Your device is compatible only with 802.11b and 802.11g wireless protocols and cannot connect to an 802.11a or 802.11n network unless it is backwards compatible with 802.11b/g.

In my case I am using a D-Link DIR-615 and I have discovered that when I disable 802.11 n that my wifi is not locking up on the device, nor is my wireless router locking up.

I have noticed reduced throughput – which I guess I should expect with this downgrade.  It is a shame that my other wireless devices need to suffer because of HP’s lack of modern Wifi support.  Perhaps I will just buy another wireless router specificially for my touchpad although that seems like a silly idea.
