Thanks for posting but it's old news. I've had one dropout which caused me to turn off and turn on my iPad 3. That's been the only incident since i've owned it. :)

I believe this was only specific to the wifi only models right? I have a 4G one and never had any issues with my wifi (so far)

Had problems with my 16GB WiFi iPad 3, poor WiFi reception and random drop outs when streaming video from Netflix, YouTube etc. Got it replaced at the Genius Bar earlier in the week and this one seems much better :)

I have a 4g model (Verizon), and have experienced some sporadic, inconsistent WiFi dropouts on my home router. Ive updated the firmware, done all the things that the forums suggest, etc... which usually results in improvement for a time, and them the blinking WiFi icon and the dropouts return. Then they go away. Then they come back. I've concluded that it's environmental interference, probably from a nearby router in the neighborhood. It seems that iPads and iPhones are more susceptible to interference than the wireless receivers in laptops and computers. Changing the channel on my router periodically seems to help...

I've had a 32gb wifi since launch day with absolutely zero problems at home or with public wifi!

I haven't noticed issues with signal loss or with speed drops but I did notice something when I was on a road trip. I could see more wifi connections on my iPhone than on my iPad at times. It seems that the iPhone has a stronger wifi antenna than the iPad.
