    WiFi Operating Distance


    I am finding the range of my Ipad is not as good as my PC's when operating to my WiFi router (Netgear RangeMax).

    In some rooms of my house I can happily access the net with my PC's but not Ipad. It only works over quite short distances from the router. Is anyone else come across this issue and is there a resolution.

    Try this, go into SETTINGS - GENERAL - NETWORK, then chose the line with your network name on it and then press the blue arrow on the right, then tap the FORGET THIS NETWORK button at the top of the page. Then setup you network again. OR, you can try to tap RENEW LEASE and see it that helps. The first option above is the best one to try, as it resets everything in the network settings. This worked for me when I had a low signal two foot from the wireless router and could not connect.

    Here's where you can download the iPad manual.


    Good Luck
