Lately I've noticed my Ipad is slower than my desktop or laptop on my home wifi. For example, when I get 5 meg on the desktop, it's about 4 meg on the laptop and about two on the Ipad. I erased the cache and history and reset it but no change. What am I missing?

I should have mentioned that I turned auto brightness off and followed Apple's guidance for the origina wifi problem. My problem just started a week or so ago. For what it's worth, have a Linksys E 3000 router and and am using ATT DSL although I'm about to go back to Comcast due to the speed.

For humors sake, have you tried power cycling the router? I find it interesting the step down between devices.

When you say you followed Apple's guidance for the original wifi problem - I assume you mean splitting the bands into two separate networks (as mentioned in this article: Apple Acknowledges iPad Wi-Fi Issues | Gadget Lab | Wired.com )
