iPad will not connect to my Torch 9850 hotspot

Before upgrading to iOS6, my iPad would connect hit and miss to my 9850 hotspot connection.  Had to play with it a lot to get it to connect sometimes.  Since upgrading to iOS6, my iPad has not connected to my 9850 hotspot since.  My hotspot does appear to connect to all other devices (several laptops, couple of android phones, etc.).  It just will not connect to my iPad.  I went to the Apple Store and found that their iPad behaved the same.  What was odd was that we did get some connections to my 9850 hotspot inside the Apple Store, but not outside the store, in the mall, in the car, etc.


This appears to be very strange.  I would like to blame all this on the iPad, but I am wondering if I really can.  Has anyone else had any problems connecting their 9850 hotspot to their iPad, especially since upgrading to iOS6?


For reference, I am running BB OS v7.1.1737.  I have restored my iPad to factory and retested, and not long ago, I completely restored my 9850 using Desktop Software, after the over the air upgrade flaked out.


Any suggestions would be appreciated.


Thank you all...
