Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 Android 3.2 Update Delayed

The recent Android 3.2 firmware update that was pushed out to Samsung's Galaxy Tab 10.1 has been retracted, due to reports of an issue affecting the tablet's Wi-Fi performance.

According to Android Central, the update results in a user being unable to connect to a Wi-Fi connection through DHCP dynamic IP. However, there are reports that Wi-Fi connectivity is still possible by assigning a static IP. Users have experienced various other problems, such as the disabling of the auto-rotate function, and the tablet's inability to connect to Samsung's Kies software that connects the tablet to a PC.

We've reached out to Samsung, and got the same response that was reported by Android Central:

Samsung is aware of an issue that some Galaxy Tab 10.1 customers have experienced with today's software update. We are working on a resolution and will provide more information shortly. In the interim we have chosen to discontinue availability of the update.

For now, users who haven't updated to the Android 3.2 firmware won't receive the update prompt, keeping your tablet safe from the issues. For those who have updated and are suffering from the connection issues, you'll just have to sit it out and wait for a firmware update to fix the bugs.
