I have the Verizon Pre Plus with the Mobile Hotspot application and free hotspot service from Verizon (major reason I went with the pre). When using it with my HP laptop I get great download speeds. When using it with my iPod Touch I get lousy download speeds. When using it with my iPad I get lousy download speeds. When I use any of the above devices (Laptop, iPod, iPad) with my in-home wireless router I get consistently good speeds on all three devices. So -- what conclusion can I draw? There seems to be something going on with the Pre Plus Mobile Hotspot and the two Apple devices (iPod and iPad). I tried some suggestions found in various places ... renewing lease ... setting ip to manual ... Both of these "solutions" seems to have helped raise the speed a little, but not to what it should be. I posted this on a continuing thread in the Palm Pre forums at Precentral, and am hoping to find an answer somewhere. I am hopeful that someone (Apple, Palm, Verizon ...) will come up with a real solution to this problem.
