You are understanding it right. The algorithm to determine a feedback is very complex and we are improving it. The iPad issue sounds like there is already something going on on the WIFI channel that you are using. You can change the channel in the system settings. This also solves the interference with the wireless microphones. The best solution would be to use a USB to Ethernet adapter and a router. You can switch the router to 5gHz and avoid interferences this way. It also has a better antenna.

The feedback manager can only work so far. Once you reach a point where too many frequencies are close to the unity gain threshold nothing will prevent feedback. There is a limit in physics. The feedback manager can only improve the situation typically 3-9 dB. A lot of this will depend on the venue. If you have a low ceiling it will be on the lower end and if you have a 10 meter ceiling height it will be much better. Also turning it off in channels that you are confident will not cause feedback can help as well.
Sounds like you have wi-fi issues and not iPad issues. The EnGenius dongle almost always works better than the Linksys unit. But there is a limit based on the room you are in and the amount of interference from other wi-fi in the area (including cell phones) and even from the V70 (if you have not upgraded it to V2.0 and run in RF2 mode). The speed at which wi-fi works depends on how clear the channel is. If it is crowded it can pause and then re-transmit which could account for the lack of speed.
