I knew I wasn't crazy! There is a problem with some WiFi only iPads!

    Well, not all that easy if you order through the Apple online store. Then you have to get permission (I suppose), box it up, and reship---and possibly have to pay shipping.

    Thankfully I appear to be unaffected.

    I am way far away from my router and it's a cheap Verizon supplied one. I pay for 15/5 and this is the speed I get :) faster then my Galaxy Nexus and HP Touchpad.

    I don't think it's a wide spread issue

    No notable problems on my WiFi only 64 gig iPad 3.

    This fact that they have a memo to capture units, is simply Apple trying to confirm if their is a problem. It is not an admission at this point that there is a problem or if it is simply mass hysteria from all the blogs. (Not to say there is not a problem)

    I took my iPad3 64GB Wi-Fi in to the Apple Store from which I purchased it. The Apple tech did a OS system restore that she said was "deeper" than I could do at home. I have restored it from my backup and so far I have no issues here at work where I had the most dropouts. Before the restore, I had done a side by side speedtest comparison with my iPad1 and the iPad3 right next to my router at home. When I get home I'll do the same speedtest and see if anything is different.

    Well it looks like I spoke too soon. I left the iPad with the Weather+ app running in my office (it reports Wi-Fi dropouts). Even with two bars of signal strength, the connection was dropped. At home the performance tests are still inferior to the iPad1. Back to the Apple Store I go.

    Yeah I was little bit suspicious about this "deeper" iOS update that she was talking about. Probably nothing more than just resetting network settings and reinstalling the iOS 5.1. Something you can do it home. Unless they have some sort of beta patch that they're not talking about that was just a bunch of bull.

    Yeah that's precisely what I was thinking. The "deep" reinstall of the OS sounded like smoke and mirrors to me. Even if this is some sort of beta patch that only Apple has, you'd think I'd be given a choice if I wanted to run beta software on my device or not. I think perhaps the memo about "capture" hasn't made it to the front line.

    Haven't come across any problems with my 32GB wifi only so far either. All is good.
