Do you have WiFi issues with your iPad? Users have been reporting of connectivity issues. Personally, I haven’t had any problems with my WiFi. However, a couple people I know have had some issues but they were fixed when they tried new routers.

    I was having problems with my WiFi connection on my 3G iPad. When I would turn it back on from sleep, the connection was lost. I kept having to go back into settings and reconnecting the WiFi. So I read the Apple recommendations, and what worked was turning up the brightness of the screen. Now I haven't had a problem in a few days. Odd solution fix, but it worked for me.

    Got my I pad on my 65 birthday. This gadget has not left my eyesite. When I was in Europe I skyped my fam. in Canada and stayed in touch also through e-mail. I bought a case in Spain to carry my I pad in. At night when I have problems sleeping I put on relaxing music or meditations on the timer so I have not to worry turning it off. My grandchildren love the apps I have downloaded the free ones do quite well for them. My 20 month old grandchild calls me now woof, woof istead of oma. Her favorite app is Sound Touch and since I have a dog the pistures with the dog are her favorites. This I pad is great for seniors you can take it on your trips, car rides, and everywhere you go. It is attached to me like a second limb. Your I pad newsletter Canada is great and gave me some very usefull tips. I keep them all so that I can rever back to them at times. I recommend your website to everybody whom wants to buy the I pad. Thank you so much for your helpfull information.

    What about the same problem on an iPhone 3G? Did iOS4 broke my router and I should adjust the screen brightness to fix it?

    I had the same problem with my new iPad, the wifi range was really poor. I did a lot of research looking for a solution to this problem- A LOT. In the end though, I found a couple of reviews of Pong Research’s cases, that convinced me to give it a try. This case is built with an antenna in between layers of the back cover, which redirects and boosts the power of the signal and increases the range of the wifi antenna on the iPad. After getting one, I couldn’t be happier with my new toy! This finally fixes my problem with the new iPad 3 wifi issues . I also enjoy a lot the Origami Smart Cover it comes with, which besides providing the classic sleep/awake function, folds and allows you to stand the iPad on 5 different positions.
