    Hi everyone

    I just picked up a new itouch and I'm amazed at the wifi strength and range compared to my wifi iPad. Anyone else notice this? Any insight on the hardware or software difference causing this?

    Thanks

    Might be a result of the different case material/design and a newer/different antenna.

    It's a well known fact that the iPad Wi-Fi is pitiful

    Is it? My iPad must not know this fact.

    It sucks for me too. It is fine if I am in the same room as my router. But as soon as I go to the other side of the house, I get 1 bar of wifi that continuously drops off. I don't have a problem in the same room with any other device.

    I think it just has a really weak antenna.

    My iPad gets better signal strength than my iPod touch and droid.

    Mine didn't get the memo either. Damn. I have a perfectly functioning iPad. I hate when that happens.
