    Hi MR's!

    I wanted to poll whether this new story of problems with WiFi strength and reception/speed of the new iPad is a wide spread problem or just a small story which turned into a hyped story again..

    So everyone with a New iPad Wifi ONLY model (no 4g!) Please vote whether you experienced any WiFi problems...

    I don't know I have a wifi model and I have noticed that sometimes the signal will fluctuate from three bars to two without me doing anything different.

    Hoax or not ?

    Apple is even doing the replacement right away to anyone with the issue, so I think its not a Hoax. Apple would not do so this early on if it was not an issue ;)

    I have a wifi only model and mine is fine, yea about probably once a week I might lose wifi and will have to reboot the iPad but that's happened with every Apple device I've owned so it's nothing new or something I worry about.

    I have a launch model and it's been great no real problems at all.

    Does your signal ever fluctuate without moving its position?

    I've never had to reboot any of my Apple computers or mobile devices to get my wifi signal again. Seems odd to me?

    It's definitely not a hoax since Apple are directly addressing the problems by replacing anyone who has a defective iPad and inspecting the returned units.

    Nope always full strength unless I'm way outside in my backyard near my garage

    Yea it doesn't always happen like I said sometimes all week it doesn't maybe once every two weeks, it's more to do I think with my router. Since it happens with my ps3 which is wireless as well.
