    Ok here something i picked up on tonight at burger king when went out for a quick bite ..i went down to try out the Ipad on a public Wifi system along with to check out the storys about poor Wifi performce with the unit after reading the post here ..I did notice that where you sit at in the place depends on how strong the signal was in the room for it could be there was some form of metal units help blocking the signal stength...That was the stange part of the deal for i allways thought of Wifi as the signal stength anywhere in the room up to the second or thrid story as need for we had run up to 7 diff laptops on the cable internet connection along with a linkys router set up for use when we lived in a three story house in bay area.. ..

    When sitting out in the car i pulled it out and check the signal out there and it was working like a champ with good signal and was pulling up the favorities websites right and left without a problem ..

    did get a couple of question about the Ipad and was it worth it ..i showed the one old gentlemen how easly it was to work and how low tech it was someone who was not computer smart at all ..he said thank you and he would go and check one out at the store to see if he wanted one ..

    I noticed at Starbucks/Peets I have spotty Wifi connectivity, but at home I have no issues at all. I really think this Wifi "issue" is more of a router issue not an iPad issue.

    No one is saying that WIFI does not work on the Ipad - Folks are saying and from my testing it's true that Ipad in general may not be as strong as other devices for picking up the wifi signal.

    My bad, I think I've been reading too many threads about people complaining of WiFi not working. :eek:

    For mine, it doesn't appear any better or worse than my iPhone/Droid but I wouldn't be shocked if there is some kind of issue.
