I have had my iPad2 since about the time that they were released and am generally happy with its performance. My broadband is supplied by BT; I moved house a couple of months ago and had to have a new phone line installed - with it we we received a new HomeHub 3 which appears to work well in most respects. My iPad2 is correctly set up to work with my WiFi and I use it both upstairs (where the Hub is situated) and downstairs. Problem is, if I watch anything that streams, like live TV, or BBC iPlayer, everything is fine for a while but then the WiFi seems to cut out and I lose the connection (and the programme!) which is really annoying. When my iPad2 has been idle, as soon as I press the Home key it can take a while before it 'sees' the WiFi and I am connected. I have not experienced these issues before - same iPad2, different WiFi. However, my iPhone and my PC pick up the WiFi immediately and work well, without ever cutting out.
So, please can someone explain what is happening and how I might put it right? I have to stress, having read through several posts on this forum and not understood a word (!) that although I am not an idiot, I'm really not familiar with the technical lingo used with this technology so, if anyone can help, please can you use the technical equivalent of one syllables? Many thanks :-)
