  1. In a nutshell I can be out in my yard & still be online with my iPhone/iPad. At my local library, I can be at the bus stop 113' from from the bldg & still be online yet go to my friends place & neither will connect till I'm in his place. Why?? :) its no big deal, just curious & TIA:)

    Pure and simple RF signal strength of the specific router(s) in question and the building materials
