Just an update. What I can see it appears to be new iPad users whom have issues. When the iPad 1 and iPad 2 were released many users experianced problems. Most of this was caused by older routers. You may have a perfect connection with your current computers but using new technology like iPads and other devices such as playstations, smart tv's, Android tablets, ereaders etc. you may experiance drop off or just poor connections. If you can not resolve the issue I suggest change your router or modem router. One could also try out the conNection at a known hot spot to see if it is better. If one researches back to March last year on our forums you will find many threads and solutions. If I have time I will provide the links. One more thing..... In my house I tested the iPad 2 side by side to a net gear router 300 n. the iPad 2 recorded 14mb per sec where as the iPad 3 or third generation iPad recorded minimum 20mb per sec. This was also the case where I worked. I have upgraded some 40 clients over the past 14 months whom were experiancing problems to newer router modems and in every single case the issue vanished. hope this helps.
