Thnderbolt Hotspot + iPad = Slower than 3G
So, I'm in the Philly metro area, I just got the Thunderbolt and when I activated my 4G hotspot and connected my laptop it worked great; I got around 8 Mbps. When I connected my iPad or iPod Touch thought I got less the 1 Mbps.
I thought this to be strange, does anyone have any feedback on this one?The Pipester has spoken.

Have you tried your ipad/pod at another wifi connection and tested the results?
Maybe Steve Jobs possesses your Tbolt on purpose... Kidding.
Here are some standard fixits I was given on another site:
1. Make sure you're using WPA and not WEP
2. Make sure your iPad is assigned a fixed IP address, and
3. Set the screen brightness to max and turn off "Auto-Brightness" (not sure how this fits in to the issue)
