    Hi guys I'm reLy getting annoyed as after jail breaking my iPad te wifi strength has reduced considerably. Is it due to the jailbreak?

    I have my mac in the same spot full bars will plat videos from YouTube with ought a problem whereas the iPad just struggles to load text pages!

    I thought I read somewhere that the Ipad was having Wifi issues regardless.

    I'd just restore and rejailbreak, see if the problem persists.

    If you installed OpenSSH that seems to make it worse.

    Also, OpenSSH tends to break the wifi indicator Next to "iPad" in the upper left.

    i dont see any of these problems you guys mentioned here. Maybe i jailbroke it on day 1, so i never get to compare it. Maybe a clean restore, jailbreak it again?

    live with it. it's part of the price of jailbreaking... it always makes the device more buggy and glitchy

    and it also breaks Location Services.

    @billyzenme You have no idea of what you're talking do you? CERTAIN APPLICATIONS which can be installed via Cydia may cause problems. After jailbreaking nothing is different when compared to a stock device, other than the fact that there's a new app on Springboard (which is Cydia.app).

    Get your facts right.

    The iPad's wifi is weak compared to MacBook and iPhone but no issues with wifi after jailbreak here
