    Hello... I have an iPad and used the app. On my iPad I have an average of 4mbps down and about 2 up. On my laptop, both connected with N, the laptop does nearly double that at about 7 down and 3.5 up. Is this normal? I'm really wondering why my iPad is so much slower.

    I've actually tested multiple times and my laptop is getting about 17 down, but the ipad about 4 down. Very odd.
    I also tested two iPhone 4s and the numbers are about the same as the iPad. Maybe it's a wifi power thing?

    "Just cause..." :rolleyes:

    Honestly, man, your router and wifi configuration will be needed for anyone to help with your specific scenario. But a little searching will provide you with a plethora of info. Also, make sure you check out the discussion boards on the :apple: site. Much more wi-fi "fixes" o'er thar.

    I have a time capsule and all computers are connected with wireless N.

    Ipad and two iPhones get the same download and upload.
    Laptop and connected mac pro get the same too.
