    Just to be clear, do you have a 3G iPad?

    If not could you be confusing 3G reception on your iPhone with wifi on your iPad?

    Nope. I know the difference.

    Learned something I didn't know from APPLE. they told me since my reception at home was also weak I needed to change password setup for router to PTA2 it works better with IPAD. took me a little bit to figure out.

    I FOUND A UTUBE VIDEO ON ROUTER SETUP.

    Then told me to reset networks since I already had 7 items running off wifi to PTA2 PERSONNEL. works better with iphone, ipod, and most of all IPAD. speed it up AND BOOST RECEPTION.

    Now much better service and even went to the dr office today and had great reception. Glad I called them.
