How to Fix Slow iPad WiFi issue


Many iPad users reported this issue. If you faced slow WiFi connection, try the following solutions.

Solution 1: Disable WMM on your router

Go to your modem settings -> QoS and disable WWM. Also try to disable “20/40 MHZ devices”.

This methods will works in : Netgear AC1900, Comcast, N900 Wireless Dual Band Gigabit Router

Solution 2: Disable QoS

I am using Linksys WRT300N router with QoS enabled. When i disable QoS (Quality of Service), download speed went from 6ookbps to 12000kbps. This settings only affect iPad (not iPhone or iPod).

Many routers have QoS as a common feature. So if you faced any WiFi problem, disable QoS feature in your router.

Solution 3 : Reset Network settings and restart iPad

  1. Open Settings app on your iPad and go to General -> Reset -> Reset Network Settings.
  2. All your iPad to restart. Then try to connect WiFi again.

Solution 4 : Change WPA2 network name or personal password 

This method suggested by apple support community user. Reported devices : Linksys E1500, iMac

If you provide same password or name to new router which old router used, your iPad incorrectly assume the WiFi password was different kind of encryption.

Also navigate to modem settings -> QoS and disable WWM.

Solution 5 : If you are using BT Hub

  1. Log into advanced settings on the BT Hub router and stop sync between 2 networks.
  2. Rename them with 2.4 and 5ghz.
  3. Finally provide induvidual password for each.
  4. Then connect iPad to 5ghz network.

Solution 6 : If you have no WMM option (try other solutions) 

  • In your router settings, change Wireless Mode from 802.11b/g/n to 802.11 b/g.
  • Turn off the Bluetooth.
  • Turn off and on modem.
