iPad suffering from wi-fi issues…. already?!?!

So, just a few days after it’s launch and it seems there are already a few complaints logged to Apple over issues with the wi-fi operation on the iPad .  Users are advising the Apple support teams that their device simply shows “no wi-fi signal” (at most a very weak signal) with other devices in the house picking the signals up without any issues. 

“It’s dropping down to one bar in a part of the house the most other devices, including my MBP and my iPhone, get full service. The WiFi is so dense in our house that I often get signal outside on most of my devices. The iPad’s WiFi antenna is like the new iMacs – it’s centrally located behind the Apple logo, and it’s tiny. The difference is the iMac’s Apple logo isn’t usually resting on something; the iPad’s usually is….” 

Most people are saying that the issue lies with the design of the wi-fi antenna in the back of the iPad and that it’s too small in order to provide a decent signal. 

Another user was quoted on the Apple site saying, “Not spending $500 on something I can’t even use.  Its going back tomorrow.”

I guess it’s early days, so maybe it’s just a handful of people having the same issues and it’s not widespread with the device.  For Steve Job’s sake, I hope that’s true.

Have you have any issues trying to connect your iPad to your wi-fi network??
