Welcome to our forums. The answer is Over the Air upgrade via wifi will update the ios only and will not affect your data. In some rare cases some apps may hiccup however either updates from the developers will be provided or you can delete the App and then down load it again free. I had a small problem with informant which crashed I just deleted the App then downloaded it and all was fine. If you connect the iPad to your computer and iTunes it will take a much longer time as it reinstalls the complete iOS. It is absolutely important that before you do that make sure iTunes backs up your iPad so it will restore comletely. If you have any issues or problems after you upgrade over the air then by all means please just let us know and we will assist you

Quickly done on mine.

3G connection does not seem to be an issue anymore, but it started dropping wifi connection annoyingly often

Upgraded two iPads, two iPhones and a touch 4 OTA without prob. Have been using my iDevices since, without noticeable difference.

wifi problems after Upgrade to 5.1.1

I'm one of the luckyless that have a lot of wifi drop, sometimes 1 per minute and sometimes no way to reconnect.
When it's working, it's cool but when wifi drop every minutes or so, the iPad is nearly useless. :(
I see that a lot of people don't have this problem so I am hopeless that they will make another update soon to solve this.

and before in 5.1 the iPad 3 wifi was working without any wifi drop. (never)

no more wifi drops du to upgrade 5.1.1

It's weird, but the end I tried one solution proposed that I didn't tried before because of "the solution itself" not believing that it will work.
I put the brightness to max lvl and since, no more problem with the wifi, no more drop.
so far it works it seams.

If that's the solution I'd suggest you change it back and see if the problem comes back. If it does you have a hardware problem that needs attention and I could only suggest that you use the warranty coverage if it's not too late.

Actually another thing I would suggest is to reload the 5.1.1 code using iTunes and running a restore.
