I am attempting to connect my iPad3 to my new MacBook Air by making my Mac a hotspot. It is working but even thought the Mac can surf the Internet quickly. Currently I am using a USB wireless card to connect with my Mac and have a speed of 7 (not sure if gb/sec or what at this moment), but have an option to increase to 11 which is the highest speed offered by the cell phone company I am dealing with in Russia. If I increase the connection speed to my Mac, would it also increase the speed to my iPad3?
Software (if necessary): OS X
