    My issue is that I have gr8 signal strength on my main floor but strength lessens as I move out laterally and significant loss is apparent if I go upstairs. My house is old construction, 1871, so no metal studs but lots of lath and mortar. Will this booster affect signal strength? Mean were only talking 12 feet up and 12-15 feet over. What think you?

    I can't really comment on whether it will work in your situ, but it does not change the signal strength (obviously). It simply drops the standard cuttoff limit for wifi in the OS. So you may be able to hold onto the signal for longer, but no promises (from me anyway)...
    Perhaps a small investment in a wireless range booster / repeater?

    Thanx for the fast reply. I have been reading up on repeaters and antennas.

    Our wireless router used to be on the other side of the house when we had DSL. We moved up to roadrunner and moved it to the middle of the house. So before the signal didn't reach to my room. I turned our old router into a booster with DD-WRT. Quite simple to do.

    WiFi Booster has had an update today to version 1.2 which corrects the long overdue issue with the iPad interface being squiffy, and I'm also pleased to confirm it is IOS5 JB compatible.

    Because it is insanely great and you were ordered to get it, so get off the couch and order now.

    Smiley!

    If you order within the next five minutes, we will double the offer. That's right, just pay the shipping and handling and you get not one but two apps. These are the apps they do not want you to know about, so order now . . . our operators are standing by.

    i have the wifi booster installed .. one thing that i noticed now is that my ipad would not automatcally connect to a known wifi .. neither at home or my office wifi .. i need to go to setting to connect and choose the wifi each time i got to either place .. strange ...

    and sometimes if i moved around with my ipad with its cover closed, the wifi got disconnected and i had to go to setting to turn it on again .. it didn't automatically connect ..

    anyone experiencing this as well ?

    I can't find this app in iTunes. What is the exact name of the app?

    You've wandered into the hacking forums......these apps come from Cydia.
