    So you can connect to networks that are outside apple's range. So iPad can get networks that only laptops can.

    Does it still work fine or are the networks that get hidden too slow to use anyway?

    Well, define "work fine". WiFi performance depends on the signal strength amongst other things. If you are connected to a very weak network you will likely be on the edge and can't expect great performance. But if you are in a bind, or want to be able to see everything in range (perhaps so you can move closer to get a stronger signal) it is a valuable tweak, to me at least. YMMV.

    Does this keep you from losing your signal on your home network if the signal gets weak on the other end of the house?

    Wait, so if someone leaves their network open, you cant use it? I dont know if its illegal in canada, but if it is, then thats pretty dumb :/

    I usually cant successfully browse on the weakest connections normally shown, heh.

    However I do see the utility in knowing what wifi networks are around, like if you see one for some mcdonalds or something and really need wifi you can head over there.
