Princeton Flunks the iPad

Apparently the new Apple iPad has some issues around respecting DHCP lease settings – so Princeton has taken steps to block iPad’s accessing their Wifi network.

The short version is that if your iPad screen is locked, it doesn't request to continue using the assigned IP, and just keeps using it after being unlocked. Princeton is a little different though, as their lease time is measured in hours, rather than days.
