    The first one, but if the restore was not successful they will fix that for you too, and if they can't they would normally replace (assuming it is in the warranty period of course).

    Yep, warranty expires in August 2013. While, I'm going to let this thread go. I will post back what my Apple store did to solve the problem on Friday. I can only hope they replace it.

    Just wondering, since my iPad has been restored, which means no apps on it. Should I reinstall the SpeedTest app or would that not be necessary for them?

    And thanks to all of those users who responded to this thread

    When I took mine in they used the speed test app to check the download and upload times. It is really no big deal, if you don't have it on your iPad when you go they will just have you enter your password and download it right there.

    I just noticed something, why would they need to do a DFU restore on your iPad? Would it not restore from iTunes properly? (just wondering)

    I had done several restores from iTunes even as you did, start from scratch and not load from a previous backup. Unfortunately the problem continued. One of the differences between a normal restore and a DFU restore is that it allows the firmware to be updated, which relates to the WiFi. DFU (device firmware upgrade), it basically puts the iPad in a state which the firmware may be updated as opposed to just the software.

    Nice, I will let Ipad Forums know if they do a DFU Restore. That just might fix my problem

    Apple replaced my iPad and this one is smoking fast on Wifi. The Genius didn't even question me because of all the research I did.

    Awesome! Glad to hear they helped you out. Keep us posted how it works out down the line. I may still take mine back again because FaceTime is still giving me some issues.

    No, if it's an Apple product they will help you.
