    I've done Speedtest and it says my iPad wifi runs at full speed(13mbps).

    But streaming videos, no matter the source, is always slow, downloading anything from Dropbox takes forever, and even downloading a 13mb app from the app store takes 10 minutes. When I am on 3G it loads faster and more consistently than on my home wifi.

    All my other devices work fine.

    I can't find a solution to this anywhere online. Can somebody help?

    I had this problem after upgrading to iOS 6.01. It was the same across all iOS devices so I reset my router to be sure then reset network settings on all my devices. The downside is that I lost all my settings for other wifi networks as well (obviously) but it seemed to work. Hope this helps.

    Didn't work. How can it be that no one knows a solution to this and apple hasn't responded to it either? There are thousands of reports all over the web of the iPads super slow wifi, and apparently no way of fixing it

    Did you try upgrading the firmware on your router?

    I would run a speed test on your Internet and if it is reading between 5 and 18, you're good, but if not, call your provider. Clearing my browser history, data and cookies in the iPad settings speeds up the browser, but as far as downloads, I would suspect the network.

    Yes. I have a fritzbox 7330, which is a fantastic router.

    Speedtest gives me the maximum speed the network allows. Same when downloading from newsgroups, streaming video, or doing ANYTHING on any devices bedsides my iPad. 3G network also performs more reliably on the iPad than the wifi

    Is there seriously no one that can help with this?

    Get this a lot myself with downloads and have found that pausing for around 30 econds then resuming helps most time. I think it depend on how busy itune is but
    am probably wrong....

    The main reasons for the slow wifi is Apple Genius for Apps. You have to turn it off all together. Settings -> Itunes Click on your Apple ID. From there, select "turn of Genuis...." something
    Did it myself yesterday and works like a charm now.
