I just received my new lightning digital av adapter and was disappointed to find that when connected to my iphone 5 and my tv with HDMI it slows down my LTE data speed.  I normally have download speeds of about 6-8 Mbps in my apartment, but when I connect the adapter I'm lucky if I get 2 Mbps and I loose bars on my phone. For example, if I'm on LTE with 3 bars it goes down to 1 or 2 bars when connected to the adapter. Also, I noticed in settings, about, it lists my new adapter and says the firmware is 6.0.0. My current iOS is 6.0.1. I'm wondering if this is part of the problem and if so, how do I update firmware for my Lightning to Digital AV Adapter?

iOS 6.0.1
