    Problem with wifi connection

    Ok so now I'm frustrated! I've got my ipad 4 connected to my wifi and it seems slow on Internet and App Store etc! It recently had a speed test of 21Mbps download but now it won't get over like 1.2Mbps! 14Mbps up and ping of 57... Same problem with my iPhone 4S but my desktop PC also wireless card is testing 19Mbps down and up. Reset network settings and was good for one speed test then speed slowed considerably! Any ideas? I have Verizon fios with their wireless modem. Thanks for any help.

    You've already done what would be my first suggestion. Next thing is to reboot the router.

    Someone in the neighborhood is eating up all the bandwidth. Bandwidth hogs are so selfish.

    Just a guess.....

    When you rebooted your router did you turn off all other devices first?
    Not sure why but when I've had bandwidth issues with my WiFi security cameras in the past the fix was to shutdown all network WiFi <and hardwired> devices, reboot router, then restart all devices.

    Problem with wifi connection

    An update: well now I'm confused bc iPad and iPhone this morning have 30Mbps! That's great but wonder why at night only my apple devices have problem with download speed? I'm gonna monitor speeds throughout the day...thanks!

    sounds like band width suck from others to me. is your router protected so someone else can not get onto your network? another possibility if you set up a 'guest' parallel network and its not protected some one may be using it and sucking down your over all network band width.

    I've been checking with speed test.net and the downloads on my mini are like 2 Mb. All my other devices are at 15. What gives?

    Did you update to iOS 6.0.2? This update was supposed to fix WiFi issues on the iPad mini and the iPhone 5.
