ComputerWorld reports a large number of iPad 3 owners are experiencing issues with the tablet's wireless connectivity:
Apple started selling the third-generation iPad on March 16, and gripes about its wireless performance appeared almost immediately.
Most complaints have been filed by Wi-Fi model owners, but some have been posted by people with the more expensive 4G-enabled iPad.
According to users, some new iPads have extreme difficulty connecting to a wireless network, staying connected, and most tellingly, locking onto a strong signal. Other devices, including first- and second-generation iPads, as well as Apple-made notebooks, do not, even though they are accessing the same network and placed beside the new iPad.
