I'm not sure about this but new iPad users are complaining about WiFi connvectivity problems. Apple is still mum about the issue, leaving some users to switch to LTE data plan subscriptions. If this is the case, I may hold off buying the idevice. LTE is just way too expensive for me.

I was very happy when I got my hands on the new iPad. I didn't notice this at first, but when I took the tablet into my backyard, and my iPhone was able to pick up my router signal without a hassle; the iPad didn't pick up the network at all. This became a nightmare for me. I've searched endlessly on Google, in the hope that someone would figure out on how to solve this, once and for all... Finally I landed on a review of a case from Pong Research . They produce these really interesting cases that ?have an antenna in between layers of the back cover, which redirects and boost the wifi signals into/from the antenna built-in the iPad. It solved my range issue. Besides that, this also comes with an improved version of the Apple Smart Cover which asides from retaining the sleep/wake function, because of its origami design, you can fold it and stand it in 5 different positions - very cool in my opinion!

I was very happy when I got my hands on the new iPad. I didn't notice this at first, but when I took the tablet into my backyard, and my iPhone was able to pick up my router signal without a hassle; the iPad didn't pick up the network at all. This became a nightmare for me. After looking for a solution to this issue for quite some of time, I was just about to give up, and RMA the iPad. I did a bunch of research came across WIRED magazine and found a extensive and detailed review of Pong Research cases. These guys make a very special case which has a built-in antenna in between its layers, which redirects and boost the signal and range of your new iPad, iPhone and other devices. As a result, I'm able to connect to my router from much further without a problem. Besides that, this also comes with an improved version of the Apple Smart Cover which asides from retaining the sleep/wake function, because of its origami design, you can fold it and stand it in 5 different positions - very cool in my opinion!
