I live in an apartment. The walls, and flooring are reinforced concrete. I had the router in a back bedroom. I noticed a problem with dropped signal. I moved the router to the center of the apartment, and no more problems. Sometimes when you have a WiFi acting up, just resetting it will solve the problem. Most routers are 360 degree annntenna. If if is against a wall, most of your signal is going outside. Placing it more central in the middle of a room, and at least chest high will greatly improve your signal. My problem was location, not the iPad.

I wonder if the router would work better for iPads etc if it is an N router? I don't think Apple supports wireless N but when I turned the wireless-N off on the router to make air printing work the signal seems to have gone down on our devices.

Strangely enough the HP photosmart C310 printer just wouldn't work at all for airprint until I disabled the wireless N. Weird... maybe I'll have to fight with the printer to try and get airprint to work with the wireless N turned on.

Idk after having the Xoom, play book, ipad2, Samsung g-tab, and finally the current iPad I'm finding the iPad 3 to be the most enjoyable. I have had no wifi, overheat, inability to charge, or other problem. In fact I've come under the impression that they be trolling.

I heard on tech news today that there is an issue with the wifi iPads where some are having wifi issues. According to tech news today stores are ordered to give you a new iPad and then they send your old one to apple. I guess they want to figure out what is causing this. That being said I have had no problem with my wifi iPad.

I think it's a 5.1 issue. One thing I've noticed is in my bedroom, where I'm on the fringe of my wifi coverage, that both my 4S and iPad 1 have much less, if any wifi signal, than they did before 5.1. Before 5.1 I always had a signal, albeit it was usually slow. Now I'm lucky if either remain connected. I've had my 4S replaced because it would drop both wifi and 3G pretty consistently after the 5.1 update. New one still drops wifi from time to time, but 3G has improved with the new phone.
I haven't really noticed any drops with my new iPad, but it still seems a little slower and has weaker signal than I think it should. Slower than my 4S and old iPad were before 5.1.

Really impressed though with the customer service I've received from Apple. I was in two minds about taking out the Apple Care, but I'm glad I did now, its pretty much paid for itself now, has I would have needed to pay £30 per return for the Express Replacement service.
