Many New iPad users are reporting that their Wi-fi connection on their New iPad isn’t as strong as their computers, or even older iPads. We’ve seen reports with problems on both the iPad Wi-fi model and 4g model. We’ve even had some users run some testing in different area’s of the house, their iPads still failed to pickup a better reception.
One user reported their New iPad only working within 6 feet of their router, and others reported the iPad Wi-fi not working at all. But this is most likely a software issue because users can temporarily fix the problem themselves. Some people claim that turning the Wi-Fi off, and then back on fixes the problem. Another method is rebooting your device. If your devices Wi-fi signal still doesn’t work all so well, than you might want to try and resetting your network settings.
Take a look at some of the Reports:
- 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?
- Same problem. Have the Decorah Eagles live cam running on my MacPro, Mac desktop and Mac Air on home network – no problem. The new iPad – continually loading with occasional brief connection.
The last time Apple experienced a problem of this sort was when the first generation iPad was released. The problem occurred with very few users, and was fixed via a iOS software update. If you problem is ongoing, report the bug to Apple, and they will likely release a fix in the upcoming week.
Have you had a problem with your Wi-fi?
