7800N connecting Ipad2

Post by tinytim » Mon Nov 14, 2011 2:54 pm

The Ipad2 is "N" rated but I seem unable to connect it when the 7800N wireless is set to 802.11n.

When switching to 802.11g+n then the Ipad connects just fine.

My laptop with an "N" card connects at 300Mbps without any problem so there seems to be no general problem using 802.11n.

I want the "n" setting really for range rather than speed.

Any ideas?

I'm on 1.06d btw

Managed to solve my problem.

2 things affect this , firstly WMM needed enabling (from Apple support) and secondly the security needed changing to WPA2/AES encryption (from Billion KnowledgeBase).

Now connects just fine.
