    Hi. I have noticed a week ago that when i'm downloading something like a podcast or an app on my ipad or iphone, it seems to interfere with the other apple products (ipad, iphone, mac). Here is what happens. I normally download movies on my mac, i have the download progress window on firefox open to see how fast it is downloading ( quite fast). But as soon as i download something like an app or a podcast on my ipad or iphone i can see on progress bar on my mac, the speed has slowed dramitically, from 1 mb to 40 kb. I have my mac connected to a neighbors wireless network and using the ipad or iphone on my wireless network so the slowdown in speed isnt because its sharing the same network. Are the wirless parts the same inside all three apple product and is it the reason for the interference and the speed slowdown?

    It maybe that you've got them both working on the same WiFi channel. So both downloads are trying to use the same radio frequency.

    Also, when radios are close to each other, even when they are on different frequencies, they can cause reception problems. Try moving the the iDevice a few feet away from the computer.
