When I first received my iPad I exchanged it because of poor wifi reception at home and at different sites. The new one connects much better, BUT it has extremely poor reception picking up a signal other than the one that is VERY close. For example my netbook picks up several signals when looking for a connection, but the iPad only finds one (fortunately the one that is very close)
I have noticed this at home because I have not yet started to travel with my iPad. At home my laptop and net book always finds several nearby networks but the iPad will only find my home network If I disconnect my home network my iPad will not find anything, but the net book and laptop find everything close by
Is anyone having the same experience? I plan to start traveling soon with the iPad and want to be sure that it has the capability to receive signals beyond the immediate very strong one. As those of you who know, who travel a lot and want a free signal you need a device capable of pulling in close by signals
My iPod based on what it is doing in my neighborhood will not work for me when traveling. I have also read on several iPad web sites that there are problems of weak wifi reception.
Is anyone having the same problems?
If so it is obviously a hardware problem that will not be corrected through software updates, so I want to return it while I still can and eventually get one that has the ability to receive close by signals
Other than this most important issue to me. I LOVE IT
