This started today, I'm on wifi, the same wifi I've always used. Nothing wrong with laptops. Web browsing impossible, everything times out before loading. My games that I play that need Internet connection won't load half the time.
Had my 3G iPad for a few days now, and overall I am pleased.One of the drawbacks I have been encountering is the very slow speeds for browsing the internet, particularly while on 3G connection.My friend just got an HTC Incredible running Android, and his browsing speeds on Verizon are even faster than my iPod while on Wi-Fi. Compared to the iPad on 3G, the difference in speed is embarrassing.
Since i upgraded to 4.2.1 on my ipad its gone very slow on web browsing,in the url pane it just freezes. I spoke to an apple genius and he said to close everything in mutitasking bar which sound daft to me but when i did try,it made no difference anyway!
After getting my ipad and being very excited with it, I am now wondering just what I want to do with it. Browsing the internet is like sitting down at with a legacy device and trying to visit modern web pages. My windows Atom net-book can run circles around it, and it's over a year old . . .
This is very disappointing. I can only hope Apple takes notice and has a patch solution.
But if I have to hope every web site has to make and app version of their site (e.g., Facebook app), and then have to purchase and install -- no way!
I hope all that is needed is some cleaner iOS. That or apple just should consider putting a intel dual into this device . . .
I've tried looking at some of the other post, and there are some similar issues. Anyway, I'm looking for input and want to know if I got this right . . . that it is indeed slow and there is no fix at this moment?
Let me know and thanks for reading!
PS, this was NOT sent from my ipad . . .

My iPad Air has recently been having major display issues as shown in the image. This only seems to occur when I'm browsing the internet either in Safari or Chrome.¬† The only way I can get it to disappear is when I turn the screen off and on with the sleep/wake button. I've restarted the iPad holding down the home and sleep/wake button but the issue still occurs.¬†
Is this something that is known and can be solved quickly or should I take the iPad Air back to Apple as I'm still under the 1 year warranty.
(I've recently had to take an iPad Air back to Apple for a separate issue, so this particular device is only 5 days old)
My wi-fi appears to be working correctly with full signal strength and fast web browsing, but as soon as I try to stream any tv shows, movies or trailers, there is a considerable lag and the quality of the picture is not great. Are my expectations just too high? I've been steaming HD content thru my xbox 360 with perfect results and I have the fastest download speed available thru my ATT service at home. Anyone else have this problem or a solution?
Holding the Internet in your hands is a must-have experience. iPad gives me that experience in a way no other device ever has, and since I got mine, I find the old way of browsing to be unsatisfying at some level. On my laptop, for example, the content.especially site navigation -- seems distant now.I keep wanting to touch the screen, or....interact with it somehow, only I can't.And the screen size and quality on iPad really make things pop. Now, the screen on other computers seems too far away or something.
I was browsing the internet, and my iPad screen turned very weird.(See http://img210.imageshack.us/i/img4264k.jpg/). But if I turn the brightness all the way up, it's back to normal(see http://img717.imageshack.us/i/img4263u.jpg/). And for some reason, when I wanted to take a picture of it on lower brightness, it would let me change it(I turned off auto-brightness) I had to hold my finger over the ambient light sensor for it to go down. If I need to, I'll try restoring. If that doesn't work, I guess I'll have to go to an Apple Store.
The MD of the company that I work for have a 64gb ipad. If we link it up to our wireless and don't specify proxy he can receive email and can't browse the net. If we add proxy details to the wireless he can browse the net but cant receive email. How I can get both to work if on wireless?
I love my ipad but the internet is so slow. I am on 5.0.1 ipad 2. I have a cisco passport router updated with the most current FW. There are times it's fast, but most of the time I go to my computer because it is so slow. I do have a good signal. I am using WPA on my router.
I pad 16 gb wifi. Att dsl wired to cp, lynksys wireless router sending signal to 3 i phones, mac book air, and a dell laptop. It screams on everything but my ipad. I get the "server could not be found" or " server stopped responding" alert, hit the refresh button and the page loads right up the second time. Problem is every time i change pages it does this. Gets annoying.
I got an iPad (32gb 3g) and I have noticed that the internet is really slow.I have an app on my iPhone and iPad that shows you Internet speeds. The iPhone showed as having good speed.so I know that the wifi isn't slow.
My wifi is incredibly slow after I upgraded two of the three iPads in my home to iOS 4.2. The other iPad that has not been upgraded works fine. In a side by side test loading the same web page, the iOS 4.2 iPad takes 5x as long.
Ipad is supposed to be your internet gateway in the house and is a perfect format for that but I am getting very frustrated with Safari's limitations (iPad version). Many sites that work fine on my macbook are not working on the iPad, pages with scroll down windows / lists is one for example. Pdf's that open only on what's visible on the screen and getting stuck on that with nothing else coming and no access to even the bottom of the first page. Lastly i find the internet connection to be much slower on the iPad that on the other computers in the house.
Got my pad today love most everything about it except the net. It's like 20 times slower than dial up for me. I really wish it weren't because this could be a deal breaker for me. I am using the built in wifi in my Mac mini with a dsl connection. Had some wifi strength problems at first but they seem to have chilled a bit. Is this normal pages taking a very long time to load?
i have put tmobile UK sim card where i use internet on it. and I make a calls and text over an ipad. however speed is not even an EDGE. I used to use it before on different network in different country and all phone sim cards I have had this logo tmobile letter "E" meaning Edge. this new card has a weird logo..its just a circle, have a look at this in my vid ? whats that mean ?
Currently I have a first generation iPad WiFi+3G with 64GB. I also have an iPhone 4S with 64GB. (both with iOS 5.0.1) Unfortunately my iPad is relatively slow. For example it takes 4-5 seconds to open iBooks and the internet seems to be much slower than on my iPhone. It also crashes quite often, because it runs out of memory. Do you think I should wait for the third generation iPad or should I buy an iPad 2?
How can I escape a page that is taking too long to load when browsing with my IPAD ? In other word is there something similar to the "Esc" key on a PC that I could use to stop a web page loading on my Ipad ?
I have wireless internet at my house and am having trouble connecting my ipad.† i have entered the password and all signs say it is connected, there is a small tick next to the name and the little bars are showing.† but when i try and use the internet it says, 'not connected to internet'. my modem is a thompson TG585 v8.
