Problems Wi-Fi with the New iPad
A significant number of users who have bought the new iPad are experiencing problems with Wi-Fi.
The origin of the problem seems to be caused by a bad power management chip Broadcom BCM4330. Although a priori be a hardware problem, Apple could fix the problem with a software update. The Broadcom BCM4330 chip was first introduced in the iPhone 4S and it has a number of measures to save energy. However, the New iPad needs to get more power from the battery to get the best possible performance to the screen. As a result of this extra consumption, Wi-Fi connections and signal reception were weak in many cases.
Fortunately, Apple already has the solution. This would happen by adjusting the amount of energy consumed by the Wi-Fi and Bluetooth chipset via a software update. As a temporary measure, Apple suggested to customers that would restore the configuration of the default network to address the problem. Anyway, this workaround does not seem to be working, so users must wait for the update.
