I have the current gen airport express which is using both 5ghz and 2.4ghz. i have a mbp mid 2010, ipad mini and iphone 5 connected to it. i assume all the three devices are capable of 5ghz networking. my AE connects to my ISP via pppoe.


i am on a 10 mbps line and i get a full 10 mbps (1.2mBps) on my macbook pro. for some reason iso devices are experiencing a terrible slow down. even the apple tv 3rd gen is experiencing lags. i barely get about 400kbps (50kBps) of speed from the ios devices. this is when there is no active download running on the macbook. i got this app from the mac app store called systempal and it doesn't indicate any activity on the mac.


to confirm if this has nothing to do with the "speed test" app on the devices, i ran the test from different speed testing apps. all reported same results. and the speed test app on an android device on my network reported full download speed!


also, when transfering some movie files to my ipad over wifi from my mac via itunes, the speed was terribly slow. it took about 20 minutes to transfer a 900 mb movie to my app via itunes file sharing.


i have done the usualy troubleshooting like rebooting the devices and the router, resetting the network settings on my devices and resetting the router, etc.


no go!


can someone help please?

iPad, iOS 6.1.3, Mini, 32 GB, Wi-Fi+Cellular, White
