The iPad 3 Has WiFi Problems Now

Heat isn't the only thing new iPad adopters are complaining about. The new-generation of tablets appears to be having some WiFi issues too.

Buyers of the new Apple iPad are growing a thread on Apple Support Communities with complaints about the tablet’s wireless capabilities.

One user says “I am in a hotel with my laptop and new ipad3. The laptop wifi reception is as strong as it gets, but the iPad only registers a weak signal. Anyone else having similar problems? Any suggestions?”

Another chimes in to say “I am seeing this too. I am currently writing this from mymipad 1 because my new iPad RIGHT BESIDE ME doesn't pick up my wifi signal….”

“Same here ipad2 has twice the wifi range with the same settings as the ipad3. The screens nice but I may return mine if this is the way they all are,” says another.

Forum user “stlsteve” actually had high hopes for the tablet. He picked up the new iPad from Best Buy, as he prepared to go on his honey moon in Hawaii.

He had imagined he’d catch up on some news reading once he’d arrive, but no cigar:

“I picked mine up at Best Buy on Friday on my way to the airport for our honeymoon in Hawaii (Kauai). What a disappointment it has turned out to be. Pictured myself reading the news with it each morning over long, relaxed breakfasts and coffee and in a lounge chair by the pool. Instead, I am sitting in a baautiful restaruant typing this with my big awkward laptop. The iPad goes back to Best Buy when I get home,” he writes.

Apple may address the WiFi connection issues, and the alleged overheating of the tablet device, in a future software update. It has also been reported that the tablet doesn't charge while running some games. For now, all these remain to be confirmed as widespread issues.

I remember having this issue; it was really annoying being forced to use the new iPad, only in the same room as my wifi router because of the poor range. I've searched endlessly on Google, in the hope that someone would figure out on how to solve this, once and for all... I did a bunch of research came across WIRED magazine and found a extensive and detailed review of Pong Research cases. These guys make a very special case which has a built-in antenna in between its layers, which redirects and boost the signal and range of your new iPad, iPhone and other devices. As a result, I'm able to connect to my router from much further without a problem. Besides that, this also comes with an improved version of the Apple Smart Cover which asides from retaining the sleep/wake function, because of its origami design, you can fold it and stand it in 5 different positions - very cool in my opinion!
