    Hi, I am getting very bad wifi on my blackberry passport. It is fine in my school (I think) but I cannot get any wifi in my kitchen while my iPad is just fine. Is there anything I can do to fix it?

    Try a hard reset first, if that doesn't help you could try using a different radio.

    The radio is what controls your wifi,cellular,and so on.,,

    And you can change them using an autoloader and its non destructive so you don't lose any of your stuff.

    As mentioned, try a hard reset. Since day 1, my wifi hasn't given me any issues.

    I really notice the difference with the A/C router.

    Nope, hard reset didn't work. Nor did the radio version change. Could it be something about the network type or band?

    Tell us a bit about your home network setup. And have you tested on any other public wifi networks besides your school?

    Well my router at home is a 802.11 b g n while the one at school is a 802.11 n/ac. I would get more bars at school at the same signal level compared to home.

    How old is the router, and is your firmware up to date?

    Maybe you could try to unplug your modem/router for a few minutes ?

    Just curious how are holding the Passport or what type of case do you have on it. The antenna is located on the left side about 3 cm down. If you have a very thick case like a otterbox that may be covering the antenna causing a weak signal. How is the signal when you put it on a table with no cover sleeve or protective case on it. I found some cases that are just coming to market are covering the section where the wifi antenna is.

    Didn't know Otterbox released a Passport case. Pretty sure the cases I've seen (feel I've seen most, but who can know everything) are NOT an issue. OP, look to other posts for answers, not ^ one.
