Won't Find WiFi Signal Strength / Mac And Ipod All Other Get Great Signal
My MacBook, MacBook Pro & iPod Touch (1st Generation) all get a GREAT signal from our Airport Extreme. BUT, our iPod Touch (2nd Generation) and new iPad (WiFi) get terrible signal strength unless we're right next to the AE!! Tech support at Apple is of no help! I'm ready to sell them all! This all started when we got the last OS update for iPod Touch/iPhone/iPad. So it must be a software issue not a hardware one..
We love the iPad and were planning on getting 2 more.

Noticing Decreased Signal Strength In Ip3
Been lovin this new iPad but for a couple of choice locations I like to plant myself while using it I'm noticing the wifi signal is weakened from what my ipad2 gives me in those locations throughout my home , backyard and front porch. Did all the resets to the router and not a change.

My ipad2 performs perfectly since day 1. Only thing is when I unboxed this new iPad on march 16 the signal strength was a non issue until about 5 days later. Guess I should start thinking about a replacement because the fluctuations are not something I am used to.

Won't Find Apps For A Signal Strength Meter
With the iPad I find I am using my network in parts of the house I have never before required wireless access to be available. To help map out the boundaries of my network and to identify dead spots I would like to find an application that gave a real time live indication of signal strength.

Does anyone know of such an application?

iPhone OS 3.1.3

Finding A Testing App On The App Store For Wifi Signal Strength?
Is there a testing app on the app store for wifi signal strength, or something in the jb community?Has anyone returned an ipad due to poor signal strength, and if so, how can you make a case for it? How can you show it's bellow threshold.I've been pretty disappointed with the ipads wifi component. I have an ipad 2, I ve had friends over with ipads, and I 've had another ipad 3 (which i ve returned due to screen issues) in my sitting room, where my circa 2006 imac is. In all of them the signal was much lower than that of the imac, and you could tell from the no of concentric arcs appearing in the wifi signal icon. But is there a way to test if an ipad has particularly problematic wifi reception? (I want to preempt suggestions about dsl speed tests which don't actually test the wifi link itself)

Fixed Wifi Signal Strength Drops - Bandwidth Speeds
First I will tell you I have the belkins n router. After playing with the setting I changed my wireless bandwidth to 20mhz, it was set at 20/40. Now I have full signal strength with no drops. Been working for an hour now. I am also getting a solid 12 Meg download speed when I was only getting 1.2 Meg before.

Low Signal Strength - WiFi Disconnects And Doesn't Automatically Reconnect
Low signal strength detected by iPad2. WiFi disconnects and doesn't automatically reconnectIt appears to me that problem #1 maybe a true hardware issue, but problem #2 may be an iPad/router incompatibly. I believe that Apple has posted some articles that cover issues with configuring routers to help the iPad connect reliably.What I occasionally see is that my WiFi connection disconnects and it has to reconnect. It's sometimes slow to reconnect and I get multiple popups that indicate it's connecting, but it always reconnects. As long as I'm accessing the WiFi it seems to stay connected. I believe in this case it's just how the iPad works and I could probably improve my reconnect time by getting a newer router. My router is about 5 years old.

IPad 3 :: WiFi Connection Dropping Repeatedly - Signal Strength 2 To 3 Bars
I am having continual wifi problems. I will be connected and running fine, then connection will drop. It will show the connection in the wifi menu, but keeps saying it can't connect. After many minutes (as much as 10-15), it will finally make the connection, and may hold it for a minute to a half-hour before repeating the dropped connection. The signal strength meter will usually be 2-3 bars during this period, but when I am connected, it will be at a solid 3. I have two laptops, a PS3 and two cell phones all running on the wifi and in the same room as the iPad, all of which experience no connectivity issues. New iPad is VZW 32GB, but I do not have cell active at this point, and is disabled in menu.

Why Is It "illegal" To Write An App That Lists WIFI Signal Strength

Won't Find Wi-Fi Strength / Constantly Switching Full To No Strength
Anyone else have this happen- the wi-fi strength meter seems very inaccurate. I seem to have excellent reception throughout my house, but the strength meter is constantly switching from full strength to no bars at all. But my connection seems to be rock solid- streaming netflix. Seems like the indicator is just flaky.

How Pages Formats Cell Height - Manually Expand The Cell
I 've had it with pages and its formatting options for tables. My annoyances are as follows:

First of all I cannot understand when and how pages formats cell height. Sometimes I write text and cells autoexpand, most of the times they don't and this is a major nuisance. And I can't find how to manually expand the cell, and hence the content of the cell is appearing only partially. This also happens when you merge cells and copy content that is relatively small, then the table does not auto-adjust to make the cell height smaller, nor can I find how to make it smaller manually.

For example I have a table with four columns and every say 4-5 rows I want to merge cells and put a header there, say a date, the size of the merged cells, their height to be exact cannot be adjusted to me smaller to cater for the smaller content.

Numbers, Changing Cell Info On One Sheet, Changes Cell On Second Sheet
I have moved a spread sheet across from excel, yes I am a happy convert, but I want o be able to replicate a simple invoicing system i set up on excel. There I was able to enter my invoice data on one sheet. From one line on the sheet, I was able to copy the data across to a second sheet that was set up as an invoice I could print fro my clients. The first sheet stayed as my accounts record, accumulating my records and eventually forming my records for tax purposes. I can copy the information across on numbers manually, but I want to be able to enter the data onto one sheet, and it appear on the other automatically. I have tried copying the value, but it has not worked.

Using Net With Cell Sticks - Possible Or Not ?
This (might) be a strange question and one I would figure out myself if I had all the required components - but I don't.

I'm wondering if a person could buy one of these cell stick (things) that plug into a USB port of a laptop and instead of plugging it into a laptop - plug it into an airport express and then access the net with a WIFI iPad.

As I mentioned earlier - I don't have the cell stick (thing) so I cannot try this myself. Can anyone fill me in on if this would work?

How To Embed Images Into The Cell?
I went to the Apple store to play around with the ipad, and specifically the Numbers app. I was very interested in it, but sadly didn't have much time to really mess around with it. It seems to have the same basic capabilities as it's desk top counterpart, but one thing I couldn't figure out was how to embed images into the cell itself. The ipad sales guy and I figured out how to drag and drop an image on top as a floating image. But nothing that sat in the actual cell.

I've reset Network settings (several times) but the problem recurs. I've also reset hardware (as suggested by other threads) but I still can't get online. I had no problem before the update.

Inaccurate Cell Data Usage?
My iPad appears to be showing more data used than is true.

How do I know? Last Saturday was the ONLY day I had 3G turned on. At the end of the day it showed about 25mb used.

I haven't had 3G turned on since. I've been using my iPad mostly at home. I took it to the diner once. I took it work one day. In all 3 places I had a good wifi signal. And mind you, I keep 3G turned off anyway (unless I need it).

I checked last night and it's now showing 57mb used. I was very confused when I saw the numbers.

I took a screen shot and will check again in a few days...

Has anyone else noticed this type of inaccuracy?

Do 3G Give Off The Same Radiation As Cell Phones?
I'm becoming a bit worried about the whole cell-phone radiation scare. I don't want to get into semantics about whether this is true or not, I just want to know:

Is the radiation given off by the 3G iPad the same as any old cell phone? If I'm loading up a website on my iPad, will it be giving off the same kind of radiation as making a phone call?

Also, can you turn 3G off and on, or is it always on?
