My iPad keeps dropping connection to broadband network. What's the best way to 'bridge' the gap between the router on top floor (3rd floor) and iPad on the ground floor? I don't think its an issue with the iPad itself because my laptop use to do the same thing until I got a 30 metre ethernet cable and now it never drops connection and is as fast as in the room where the router is. However, I do most of computing on the ground floor, so I am looking for a way to close the space between the ground floor and the router. I have very decent router so I don't think upgrading it will do the job. I also have a spare router. Can I use an ethernet cable to connect the second router to the first router and place the second it on the middle floor (from what I've read, I don't think this method actually works). So what are my options? I have tried a repeater and didn't do the job. If anything, made it worse in terms of speed. I have also logged into my broadband setup and tried various channels but only acquiring minimal improvements on some channels, not enough to drop connections on quite a regular basis. By the way, when I go on the middle floor and of course the top floor itself (where the router is positioned), the speed improves dramatically and hardly experience breakages. I should say that I am on a pretty fast network delivering speeds up to 76mb/s but speed is usally under 5 mb/s on the ground floor over WiFi (around 60mb/s over ethernet connection).
