Yet another slow wifi thread.


Still Fresh
Nov 4, 2010
I'm trying to figure out if there is anything that can be done to improve my wifi download speed. I've tried setting a highest wifi channel on my router (13) and running the command that I'm asuming disables power saving but I'm not to familier with linux enough to be sure; I've also disabled wifi security but that unexpectedly reduced performance. Right now I'm running wpa-psk/wpa-psk2 AES security without any range boosting fetures enabled on my belkin play max modem router, and I'm getting average 20kb download speed with a max of about 50kb/s (briefly). Is this the most I can expect out of the wifi chip? What speeds have any of you managed to get?

Well, at work I get 350kb pretty stable. At home i get between 250 and 300 kb.

What would be more interesting to me is, why the wifi drops out or gets much slower, when running gles apps...
