    Hi, well, I'm having also problem with the wi-fi connection. I check with my MacBook and the net is a quite strong, but with the iPad is a quit weak or even nothing. And sometimes, if I'm making a video call by Skype, the connection gets really bad sometimes, even with my router 3 meters from me....
    Do you think that the network set will solve me also that? I didn't want to make without sure, because I have too many networks configured already...
    Thanks a lot,
    Susana

    Wife and I both bought iPad 3 wifi only 16Gb. For what's it worth I bought a black one and she got a white. My wifi was terrible and hers was great. After several days of suffering, I exchanged mine for a white one and it works great now. Probably had a run of bad cards at a particular factory.

    Strange that your download is great yet your upload speed is so low. Typical service with 40Mbps down would at least have a 2-5 or more Mbps upload. My low end cable service is 10mbps down and 1.5mbps up for comparison.
    Could be normal yet you may want to question it etc.

    Cheers

    Last year, I found an app for the PC, loaded it onto the notebook, and walked all over the house testing the wifi signal. I have 2 dead spots in the house, on the veranda in the furtherest corner from the router and inside the kitchen, which is about 3m from the router. A couple of weak spots too. Based on this test, I rearranged furniture so I could be in spots where I had the strongest signal. Hope this info will be of use to anyone struggling with signals.

    Well, I have the white version.... And the wi-fi is bad, so...
    Some people said that resetting the wi-fi connections that was solving the problem.. Another's tried and didn't... As I don't know where I saved the paper with my Internet password, I cant sill try in this moment (tomorrow I have my Mac with me, and finally I can check the pass), so I will try tomorrow... Hope that works, if not, I will have to go to the apple store as well, and get another one...

    I travel quite a bit and have found that when I have login issues in my room via wifi the first question that I am asked is if I am logging in with a computer or with my iPhone/iPad. iOS devices are known to have problems in areas where the signal might be marginal. I can tell you that I've noticed time and again that my notebook pc will login faithfully while both my iPhone and my iPad will have problems. Just one of those things I guess.
