Have you tried using it somewhere else with a known stable wifi?
It may just be coincidence that the problem started with OS8. It may be an issue with the wifi.

I updated mine a week or so ago, it wasn't a problem to do it and it hasn't given me any problems since doing it. I don't really notice any vast improvement though, but as long as it works...then I'm happy.


(mine is a iPad 2, 16gb, wifi and 3G)

I updated my iPad and since then I have been plagued with slow responses, pages dropping out and numerous messages about pages being lost and reloaded. I never realised it had occurred since the update but it maybe is connected. Please let us know if anyone knows a reason or a cure.

Which Ipad do you have?
I did the update on my ipad air and have noticed improved battery life and uglier icons, but thats about it
