Apple hints at wifi fix

Apple has finally hinted at a wifi fix for the iPad despited dragging their feet regarding it being a problem with the iPad. Currently the official fix from Apple is to basically check and reset your router... Hmmm the dozens of wireless systems I've been on over the past month can't all be set up wrong.

For anyone not experiencing this problem, basically when you have a known strong wifi signal e.g. your next to the router, or your iPhone (or any other device) has a full signal but your iPad has just the bottom dot in your wifi signal indicator, that's an indication you too are having the problem.

The only "sort of" fix I've found is to hold my iPad vertical and not lay it down or I risk loss of signal. Come on Apple do the right thing and give us a fix.

I'm a behavioral health professional living and working in Maine specializing in psychiatric rehabilitation. For years I've utilized mobile technology to improve the delivery of community based mental health services, and embraced the iPhone when it came out in 2007.

I am also a doctoral candidate at Franklin Pierce University where I have been researching the role of the Liberal Arts in American higher education.

I write as a guest for iPhone Life periodically with a special interest in helping other professionals (healthcare, education and government in particular) incorporate iOS devices into their work, and several years ago introduced the first iPhone and eventually iPad classes at Lewiston Adult Education in Lewiston Maine concentrating on helping other professionals interested in using and incorporating iPads into their work.
