Apple Acknowledges iPad Wi-Fi Issues

PCWorld: Apple Acknowledges iPad Wi-Fi Issues

An Apple Knowledgebase article acknowledges there are issues with Wi-Fi connectivity but confines itself to providing fixes and work-arounds for a few limited situations involving multi-band routers. Customers say the problems are many and varied.

“If you feel like your brand-new iPad isn’t working with wireless networks the way you think it should, the problem may not be in your head. Apple’s support forums contain a number of comments from frustrated users who are experiencing problems while trying to set up their Wi-Fi connections. And Apple itself has posted a support note and FAQ on Wi-Fi and the iPad.

User reports on Wi-Fi problems cover various issues. Some users say they’re unable to join their networks at all after their iPads come out of sleep; others can’t seem to get a signal unless they stand very close to their wireless routers (which, needless to say, negates the points of having a wireless network in the first place).”
