    Hi I have a Netgear Wireless N Adsl2 wireless router. It has 6 wired computers connected and 3 wireless clients connected. My Ipad struggles to play youtube videos on it. Is there anything I can do to speed it up. I have a 8meg package with Orange and get about six meg according to speedtest.com. I was thinking of a wireless repeater or something. CAN ANY ONE HELP!!

    A wireless repeater (or Range Extender) receives a packet and then rebroadcasts it. That extra transmission means the wireless network will be slower with it than w/o it.
