    Wifi

    Ihave the latest os level and my reception is far worse than a very inexpesive net book.
    I spoke to the technician at the apple store. He denied there were any wifi
    Problems.

    I took a sledgehammer to my linksys yesterday. Airport extreme plus express as an extender. Tech support with AppleCare til it runs out on my MacBook. Fabulous connectivity. I have read that changing security settings on your router helps (wep). Also reset network settings on iPad. Good luck!

    I fixed all my connection problems yesterday! I went to Best Buy and purchased a Netgear RangeMax Dual Band Wireless-N Router, model WNDR3700. That solved all my problems with connecting to my iPad anywhere in the house and out on the patio.

    Life is good again.

    Works fine and outside

    No problems. Works fine inside the house and on the front & back patio (about 10ft.).

    I have good reception on mine. And I'm using the Marware EcoVue case which I've read has a magnet.

    Mine isn't great, even my nokia n800 tablet is far better. I noticed too that if I hold my hands on the top corners in landscape the signal gets worse

    I have not had a issue one with my wi-fi this thing runs better than anything in my house. It is of course less than 15 hrs old but runs great and is a wi-fi only model.
