I have an iPad 1 that only can get a strong wireless signal from dual band routers that broadcast a 5 ghz signal.  The iPad picks up a weak signal from 2.4 routers (1 bar) when it is within a few feet of the router, and nothing beyond that.  Has anyone seen this before, or have any idea of the cause?  I figure it has to be antenna related, but then how does it still work great with the 5ghz?  The Bluetooth also works fine?  Quite frustrating, as it pretty much limits the ipad to my house.
