Does Wi-Fi Work On Your iPad3?

By March 26, 2012

Follow me on:

Similar to sporadic connectivity issues with Wi-Fi on the original iPad, reports are circulating of potential wireless networking problems on Apple's new iPad3. Alleged symptoms involve frequent connection drop-outs and inability to join a home wireless network unless located directly in front of the router. For as many folks who've purchased these new devices, it seems most aren't experiencing an issue. If you're among the unfortunate ones, though, try switching the iPad3 Wi-Fi radio off and then back on via the Settings app. This workaround has the effect of resetting the Wi-Fi connection without having to switch the whole unit off and on again. Another workaround: try a 4G cellular connection instead (but watch your bandwidth allocation!).

The wifi range issue on the new iPad (3) is really annoying, I was really sadden when I tried my new toy and this happened to me After looking for a solution to this issue for quite a lot of time, I was just about to give up, because all of the step by step guides which I found didn’t solve my problem with the wifi reception. At the end, I found a couple of reviews of Pong Research ‘s cases, that convinced me into giving it a try. This special case, is built with an antennae in between layers of the back cover, which redirects and boosts the power of the signals and increases the range of the wifi antennae on the iPad. After getting one, I couldn’t be happier with my new toy!
