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!).
