I have wifi in my home, but why does my Mac seem to load instantly, and my I Pad takes FOREVER ?

I prefer the I Pad, but am very impatient waiting so long

Because you touch yourself at night.

Dance, Op, dance

Does your mac connect via a LAN cable, or is it wireless too?

Wired connections are faster than wireless.

by Mr. Impatientreply 310/06/2013

Patience is a virtue, dear. Practice it. And what r3 said.

I think I know what you're talking about OP. Either my roommate's laptop or mine will get a fast Internet connection on the wireless, but the other one always seems to slow down. I'm on a dual antenna wireless n network. FIOS connection. I've tried to figure out why it happens, but haven't had any luck.

The wifi speed isn't the only factor. Your Mac probably has a faster processor and more memory.

As my heroine, Aurora Greenway, said to Jack Nicholson in " Terms Of Endearment".

" Sometimes impatient boys miss dessert"

your iPad just isn't that into you

What else is using the wifi? Do you have a Roku box for example?

by Mr. Impatientreply 910/07/2013

No Roku - just Mac & I Pad. Thats it

by Mr. Impatientreply 1010/07/2013

Because fuck you, that's why!

Have you tapped the home key twice to bring up all your running apps and turned them off one by one, as you are supposed to do periodically to maintain speed?

by Mr. Impatientreply 1210/07/2013

what is the "home" key?

by Mr. Impatientreply 1310/08/2013

Returning network settings to defaults, then reconnecting to my home network seems to help.

As R12 said, closing unused apps regularly is also important. With iOS 7, you can double-click the Home button (the hardware button on the bezel) or three-finger swipe up from the bottom. Then swipe the image (not the icon) of the app up and off the top of the screen.
