If it's the crappy router they provide, that could be it. But those who value a more robust router, have purchased something else to use with their FiOS service and iPad works well with my DIR-655.i was at a friends house and the wifi sucked but at my house i never have a problem with wifi asking for a password.
Ditto. Actually just did a Speedtest using the iPhone app that is in the store, got 16m down on the iPad.It's not fios, it's the router that came with the service. I have an airport extreme on my fios and it's great.
on the ipad? I usually get around 10mbps over the wireless network. I have the 35/35 plan and whenever I check on my wired desktop im pretty close like 36/30Tell your friend he should change to WPA regardless of the iPad issues. WEP is very easily hacked into (we're talking minutes).
EDIT: yeah, I get 16 Mb/sec download with FIOS too. God I love it.
What revision is your Actiontec? The older ones are much worse when it comes to wireless. I am on revision A. That is why I added the AE. I actually have 2 Airport Extrmes setup. I bought a 2nd Actiontec off eBay and set it up as a coax bridge, so I have one AE at each end of the house bridged off the Actiontecs. Works great.I'm getting 16 with the wireless G from the actiontec.
I don't heave the iPad yet: FRIDAY! but saw the threads about FIOS. So I can use an airport express as a bridge instead of an access point? That would mean wireless N, right?
