Fix slow Internet video on iPad
Authored by: Tummy on Feb 04, '11 08:29:59AM

I have a 12mb connection with u-verse and had lots of problem with stuttering video. I was able to show it graphically using the Speakeasy SpeedTest app. The graph would show the connection going up and down from 0-10mb. No matter how many times I rebooted or tweaked the settings, it would always do the same.

I ended up fixing it by replacing my 9 month old, $500 Dual Band Time Capsule with a $50 refurbished Linksys router + 4TB NAS. Now the graphs from SpeedTest show the download speed almost flat across the top at 10-11mb.

I also have an Airport Extreme to incease the range from the Time Capsule, and it had similar bad behavior. The range on the new, cheap, router is so much better, I don't need the Extreme anymore.
