I have just bought today in MediaMarkt new WiFi 16GB iPad (i.e. iPad3) but it appears that it has problems with very slow WiFi connection. The device connected immediately to my home network and connection bar indicates maximum signal strength but the network speed is extremely slow on this unit. It is a huge disappointment after spending roughly 500 Euro. Download songs or apps takes for ever. It is impossible to watch the YouTube videos either. My other wireless devices such as Samsung Galaxy Tab, Mac Mini and my professional HP Laptop don't experience this problem at all i.e videos from YouTube load within few seconds and transfer of mp3, pdf or jpeg files between those devices is nearly instantaneous.

 

I want to return this device back to Apple. I wonder though whether this is generic problem with all new iPads so I should simply demand cash back or is it only problem with my device.

 

I run my home network on Cisco 120N wireless router.

 

I understood that in US Apple replaces the units that experience WiFi problems http://www.tekgoblin.com/2012/04/05/apple-captures-ipad-3-units-that-exhibit-wif i-issues/

 

Do you know whether exactly same program is running in EU?
