I have a Sonicwall NSA240 which I have 2 SonicPoints NE's on.  What I'm running into is
I get slow speeds on any iPad's iPhones and Androids (Samsung Galaxy S3) connecting to the internet, while  I test on my PC using, I get 20Mb download and 2Mb upload.
(The results  on the iPad/iPhones is around 4-7Mb for same test - I make sure I test using the same servers)

I tried messing with all the advanced features on the Radio, tried going to Auto channel and Auto Radio Band (which going on 40Mhz yields VERY slow speeds, under 1Mb - but this is a known problem with apple products)  I dont have " Enable Aggregation " enabled or " Enable Short Guard Interval "  there are a bunch of other AP's in the area, but according to the Sonicwall RF Analysis page channel 8 is clean, however that doesnt really make much of a difference.  

Any ideas?  TIA!
