    I bought ipad3 the first day it was introduced and had no problems hooking it into my home network. Performance however was not very good.

To bring things up on the web, I would to close out everything running in the background ( double tap the home button). I was so frustrated, I took it to my local Apple store, thinking I'd be walking out with a replacement unit. Of course, when I tried to show the clerk my issue, it worked perfectly. He suggested I unplug my router for a minute and then plug it back in. I did that and it did not help. I also did a complete restore which did not
