    What are your current service providers at home? How much you all pay a month for internet and who are you all with? Comcast, Verizon Fios, DSL, DIAL UPS?

    I am asking this because I feel that my iPad wi-fi is slow.

    I get this speed, but my wi-fi iPad seems to be still below average speed.

    17MB down

    And

    15MB upload..

    I pay 55 dollars a month to Verizon Fios.

    i have 10 megabit down and 1.5 megabit up, cable connection. BrightHouse issued cable modem --> Linksys WRT600N brooadcasting N only with DDWRT. I also have a WRT54GL which broadcasts G for legacy support.

    I connect to the 5ghz radio on the 600n.

    I have done some research and the iPad will only connect at 65mbps, even on a 40mhz channel.

    Make sure your wireless network is configured properly. What are your settings?

    I am able to max out my internet connection with BitTorrent. Using the speedtest app for the ipad, I average 8mbps, but have seen as high as 9 and recently as low as 4.5.

    Not really. It's only $30 because I threatened to leave them at a time when they were having lots of defections to rivals. Normally it's close to $50.

    Time Warner Cable/Road Runner Turbo, $45/mo, it's supposed to be 15Mbps, but I average anywhere between 20-25 or so down and 1Mbps up. Hooked up to my AEBS I just got 28 last night :)

    Check it out.

    I use the 3G connection from my motoroloa droid, tethered to my iMac through pdanet. I then use the Internet sharing feature in osx.

    Boom, free wifi in my apartment for my iPad.
