    Have u experienced any connectivity problem in your iPad 3 using wifi? There have been several reports about it and apple is replacing their unit if found faulty. Mine is working fine.

    No problems here that I couldn't solve. I'm restricted by BT router speeds.

    No issues with wifi. It connects as well as my Ipad one did everywhere, including home.

    Nice to hear we all received the best working condition iPad. For those who are encountering such wifi issue. For an electronic device i believe its just normal that manufacturers have certain defect rate. But for apple products it seems very minimal. The good thing is they are offering replacement for a defective product. Can be refurbish though but still a good service offered compared to other competing brands.

    Mine is fine, sometimes limited by broadcasting range of establishment I'm in.

    I had issues initially that happened when trying to connect to my Netgear router. If I tethered to my phone, the wifi signal was fine so I went online and found that Netgear and Apple have long history of not always playing well together.

    I ended up buying an Airport Extreme and I get a signal anywhere around the house now.

    Funny, I went from not owning any Apple products to owning two in a few weeks. Now I'm looking at possibly replacing my pc that just lost its hard drive with a Mac. It's a sickness, I tell you.

    I am having issues with mine. It tends to stop and start.

    I've run several tests against my MacBook on the same wifi network and the iPad is always slower, sometimes not by much but often it takes twice as long to download a YouTube vid.

    I called Support and they had me reset network settings which improved things for a day, now they're getting worse again.

    They said the next thing is a system reset. Can anyone tell me what I'll lose by doing that?

    Begin by pressing the hold and home buttons at the same time. The hold button is the one on the top right corner of the iPad. The home button is the round one at the bottom center of the iPad's front

    Continue to hold these buttons until one of two things happen: either the screen will flash and go dark, or a red slider will appear at the top of the screen

    If the slider appears, you can slide it to the right to turn off the iPad (or tap the cancel button if you change your mind)

    When the iPad's screen goes dark, the iPad is off

    Restart the iPad by holding down the Hold button until the Apple icon appears. Let go of the buttons and the iPad reset will be complete.

    Resetting the iPad shouldn't normally cause you to lose and data or settings.

    In some cases, reset can also refer to restoring the iPad to its factory settings and deleting all data. In any case it is recommended u back ur important data.
