    Since updating to ios6 I have found it painfully slow to browse the internet. Pages take ages to load. And streaming videos keep stopping. I have done a speed check which shows 8mb which is approx what is has always been. Is it just me?

    This happened to me also. I did three things: 1) removed all apps in the multitask shelf, 2) held down the sleep button until power slider came on, slide to off, waited a couple of seconds and repressed sleep button until I got back to home screen. 3) pressed and held the sleep button and the home button until the iPad went to black and the white Apple appeared and then brought you back to the home screen.

    I hope this helps.

    Try resetting the network. Settings->General->Reset->Reset Network. I found I was having similar problems with my pocket wifi stick. I thought the ISP was slowing my connection because I'd gone over the usage limit. When I found out I hadn't gone over the limit, I looked for other solutions. I realized the slow down started around the time I "upgraded" to iOS 6, so I tried resetting the network. This worked.

    , , 3 with IOS 6 loses wifi signal repeatedly every day. I pick up my ipad1 and that is working with my wifi. The problem must lie with my ipad3, perhaps the ios 6 . Anyone else having these problems?
