I am getting my replacement ipad on Monday as well as a new airport exteme. Could you tell me the settings you guys are using that is working best for your ipad? I don't need it to be password protected either, I live 10 miles from the next closest house in the middle of the country. I also will be running a ps3, My dell pc with a g card, my ipod touch and a old dell desk top that will be running using ethernet and my apple tv. The extreme will be directly in the center of a 2 story old BIG farmhouse. But I picking up my linksys 3 year old 54gs router right now and getting full signal in the basement where I am 99% of the time. And this is also where my ps3 and apple tv are at.
