Apple Addresses iPad Wi-Fi Issues
Within just a week after the release of iPad, owners are already complaining regarding wi-fi connection of the gadget.
Apple made the following statement from their website: “Under certain conditions, iPad may not automatically rejoin a known Wi-Fi network after restart or waking from sleep. This can occur with some third-party Wi-Fi routers that are dual-band capable when: Using the same network name for each network, [or] Using different security settings for each network.”
A resolution was given in the same webpage but it is only for that specific dual-band router situation.
However, not all are complaining. Some who are using Apple-based networks are not experiencing any problems. Well, only some.
Another issue brought up is the re-authentication that keeps bugging owners even after a successful, initial connection.
The iPad was launched in the United States last Saturday, April 3, where 300,000 units were sold, which is lower than the initial estimates which were ranging from 400,000 to 700,000 units.
