Wi-Fi signal strength an issue for users of the new Apple iPad

Some users of the new Apple iPad are having problems with the W-Fi signal strength on the tablet with some users saying that their iPad is unable to hold a connection; it is the tablet at fault as some have been able to run an Apple iPhone over the same router without a problem...

like making the not so capable phone, "4G" capable by just outing a Software update, this issue ( if accepted by APPLE) would be easily solved. Just another update from APPLE for wi-fi issue and the device will start showing full signal strength even if the N/W is not being broadcasted. SPECIAL PEOPLE will start calling it "INNOVATION" ... :D

Well I am glad mine has neither of the three problems. To those who do, call Apple Care and get the issue resolved.

Its like 2010 all over again ala the phone 4. The serious faults are reported,apple reacts like theres no such thing as faulty apple products,ifans come on here defending apple like mad,all while more and more brainless people buy the faulty products believing its all not lies against apple and later act shocked if their idevice is faulty. I dont think they Will ever learn!!

Like its any different with android andro?i had and still own an htc thunderbolt I remember the problems I had with that phone my fingers still hurt from pulling the back off to pull the batt and the galaxy nexus I had for a short time I was lucky I got 5 hours batt life out of it beside the fact the earpiece was a piece of crap but let's beat up apple.I don't make it a habit to get on a rant but I beginning to feel this site is frequented by a very young crowd.I am very happy with my iPhone and iPad and so is my wife and kids with there's.remember every product has its bad points android and iOS it's just a matter of prefence.

Most of your post I see is how you had such a bad experience with android and moved onto IOS. I don't hate ether product, I have my likes and dislikes but I don't go out of y way like you to praise 1 specific product.

The only reason we're hearing about this is because it's an Apple product and the most minor detail get's 10x the attention it deserves. There aren't widespread wifiproblems, there's a few cases that are being blown way out of proportion by the less rational media like phonearena (anything Apple = clicks = $$$). No one reported the Kindle Fire's wifi issues, yet ask anyone who works in an Amazon call center and the majority of their time is spent dealing with wifi issues. No one reported that the HTC Evo, one of the most popular Android phones out there, would stop charging for no reason and need to be replaced on a pretty regular basis. No one reports on the crappy antenna's Samsung's phones that are liable to make every other text message fail.

The worst part is the idiotic trolls that eat this crap up.

Probably just needs a software tweak. Most phones that are released have some wifi issue and require a software update.

Yes, because software fixes everything, just like how Apple turned the iPhone 4S into a 4G device just by upgrading the software to say "4G" instead of "3G"

Yes some tweeks can fix the issue, some times even with updates , wifi have signal problems and need another update to get if fixed. You would be surprised how things are fixed with just a few tweeks and a update.
