    I'm sorry, is it just me, or does anybody else think this is kind of weird?

    Why would a reset do anything but return it to original 5.1, as it was shipped. I can see something corrupting it, which then causes the problem, and resetting returns it to the original factory settings and for battery management as well.

    Resetting the firmware is different to a factory reset. When the factory ships the iPad, it is configured to the way apple requests, so a "factory reset" resets it to the way you got it, however, a firmware reset resets the actual firmware to the basic settings.

    Not really. The program defaults are not the same as the reset defaults. The likely answer is that most of us are just fine on lower power wifi. I have always enjoyed superior strength and amazing range from my WAPs.
