    I love my ipad but the internet is so slow. I am on 5.0.1 ipad 2. I have a cisco passport router updated with the most current FW. There are times it's fast, but most of the time I go to my computer because it is so slow. I do have a good signal. I am using WPA on my router. Any ideas?

    Try this, open the settings app and the wifi tab, select your wifi network and choose forget this network.

    Now reboot your router.

    When the router has rebooted, sign back into your wifi network.

    Let us know if this has helped.
