Improving iPad Wi-Fi Reception

One of the common problems that users are having with the Apple iPad is with its Wi-Fi wireless Internet access. A Google search of “ipad wifi problems” returns 18 million results, and some of the top results indicate that Apple acknowledges the problem. Mark Stout is one of the users who was experiencing problems with signal strength in his home and decided to change the settings on his Linksys wireless router. As Mark describes, he basically changed his wireless router to only communicate via the 802.11g standard rather than supporting both the 802.11g and 802.11b standards, and the result was improved signal strength in his house.
