What kind of computer are you using that you sync the iPad with?
Also, what brand/model of wifi device are you using?
not syncing with a computer. use wifi to mirror ipad tv channels sucj as espn to my tv using hdmi.
Do you have any computer at this location besides the iPad?
linksys wirelss g 2.4GHz 54mbps
what kind of computer is it?
dell desktop is hardwired. and i use a dell laptop wirelessly
Ok, thanks. Is the Dell laptop having any connectivity issues? Can you please go to Start->Run and type cmd, then press Enter, then type ping -t google.com and let me know what the ttl shows?
Can you please define "sketchy"? Is it having to buffer or what do you mean by sketchy?
please give me a sec to boot up laptop
i guess buffer may be the techy term. it like the picture cant keep up with action
Ok. Do you know how to get to the Settings on the iPad to see what IP address it currently has?
After you do the ping from the laptop, I'd like to ping the iPad
the ttl shows 52
hit control c when you're done, by the way
ok, see if you can get to the IP address of the iPad.
You'll find it under settings
if not network, it will be wi-fi
got it do you need ip?
just make note of it
on your desktop, go to cmd prompt and type ping -t <ip of iPad>
ok give me sec again
done ttl is 64
from the laptop, ping espn.com and let me know ttl please
so, I think what's happening is that everyone and their brother is trying to stream from espn and espn is getting inundated
i wondered if that mite be the issue
one way to verify whether that might be true is to try going to other streaming sites from the iPad
like wimp.com or some such place that might not be getting hit so hard
if your experience is smoother, then it's not the iPad
definitely not the ipad b/c i streamed from nbc last night. could it be the router?
no, afraid not
the site's host can only take so much regarding bandwidth requirements to satisfy the demands of its customers.
if it was the router, your experience would be awful from the Dell laptop and the iPad, not to mention every site you went to would be terrible.
i understand. i'll let espn just in case they don't already
know that is
thanks for your help
glad I could hlep
