Result:how do I tell my ipad connection speed

I have an Airport Extreme Modem and an Airport Express Modem at home. My internet connection works fine with computers and iPhones. My ipad Wi-Fi connection is ok, but sluggish at times. I recently downloaded TheDaily ipad app and when I open it each day I get the following message:Slow connection - You are accessing TheDaily from a low speed connection. Download the issue anyway?My ipad is sitting right next to the Airport Extreme Modem. Any ideas why this would be a low speed connection? iMac 24" 3.06Ghz Mac OS X (10.5.4) ipad 16GB, Wi-Fi...|slow-connection-speed-connection-ipad

I checked my Airport Extreme stats to se what my new ipad is connecting at, I was very disappointed to se it connects at only 39Mbs. Even my gen1 iPod touch connects at 54MBs and my Macbook over 100Mbs.

The ipad boasts 5 antennas. But It seems only 1 or 2 antennae are enabled to work. I put my ipad right beside the Airpot Extreme router, the connection speed via 802.11a/n at 5GHz never exceeds 72MB, no matter how close it is to the base station. My MacBook Pro 15-inch can achieve a speed of 270MB,...|ipad-connection-speed-surpass-72150-mbs

My wireless G connection is faster by about 1.5 mbps than my N connection on my ipad. My iPhone 3GS is anywhere from 3-4 Mbps faster than my ipad. However, my MacBook Pro is 20 Mbps faster than both and is close to my wired connection (around 26 Mbps). The MBP is also on the same wireless router in N mode. Am I missing something with a config of my ipad? It looks like all kinds of weirdness going on with wireless and the ipad.
