Slow WiFi speeds with my Note 10.1
Monday 11th of March 2013
This is a preliminary question that may generate more questions for me to answer. I have noticed on many occasions that Internet speeds seems to be slow on my note. When I run speedtest on both my Note and my phone, my Note frequently gets half the download and upload speed that my phone does. I have also noticed quite often that when I look at the WiFi network list on my Note it often says that it is scanning, even when it is connected to a network. I rarely connect to a network other than my home, so I am not sure if this issue is specific to my home network. Does anyone have any ideas of what I should look for on my home router or on my Note that may explain this? Thanks for any help.
Slow internet speeds?
Sunday 24th of April 2011
When i first bought the phone i was getting great speeds, i downloaded a 80mb file in around 10 minutes. Everywhere i went i got great speeds, well the past week i been getting dial-up speeds i download 2.34mb and it took about 7 and half minutes. Last night for the first time i tethered and the software said download speeds around 48.06kbs-76.80kbs. But on his laptop he was getting 5.6kbs i also download a speedtest software it said 100kbs. I don't know if its cm6 or i click on the button but why im i getting really slow speeds?
Getting really slow 3g speeds on N1 with T-zones?
Friday 12th of November 2010
Hi everyone I've been using my N1 on T-mobile for a couple of months now and never really complained about my internet speed because I'm on a grandfathered 5.99 T-Zones plan. However, I've been reading around on some forums and heard people say that they get full 3g speeds (1+ mbps) on their N1s with the 5.99 T-Zones. Using the speedtest.net android app, I've never been able to break 1 mbps (my highest was .7 mbps) and I've ran the tests in Santa Barbara and Fountain Valley CA, both of which should have 3g speeds according to T-mobile's website. I bought the phone on ebay and its on version 2.2 without any mods but the phone or bootloader is unlocked (I'm not that good with terms but when I restart my phone the lock on the bottom is unlocked, so whatever that means) and the status bar on the top of the screen does say I'm on 3g. Does anyone know whats causing my slow speeds? Is it because I'm on the 5.99 T-Zones plan and will upgrading to the unlimited data plan fix my problem?Thanks for your help.
anyone notice slow internet speeds?
Thursday 17th of November 2011
hey guys, so since i've been spamming this forum, i decided to finish spamming it lol. I ran few speed tests and i've noticed much much slower internet speeds on skyrocket vs the ogs2 i had... and it's at the exactly the same location... lying on the same spot on my bed.. i ran it last night and was seeing speeds of 1300kbps but on skyrocket, i'm seeing 800kbps... obviously running both running on HSPA+ since there is no LTE in NYC area yet... so am i the only one seeing this problem?
Slow WiFi on Razr Maxx
Sunday 09th of September 2012
I'm having weird issues with my Razr Maxx (4.0.4) when it's connected to my home wifi. The router itself is in my roommate's room so I'll have to wait until tomorrow to get you the specs on it, but I think it's an older linksys. Anyway, the phone has no problems actually connecting to the network and maintaining the connection. I just get REALLY slow speeds with several apps. Downloading apps from the Google store takes forever, for example. Performing a search in Google Maps also takes a really long time to return results and the speech-to-text function never works (I assume because it has to connect to the online database). Oddly, my browser (Dolphin) seems to run just fine and at normal speeds, so maybe it's just Google services.I ONLY have these speed issues on my home wifi. 4g and 3g are just fine as are every other wifi network I've connected to. Also, internet speeds on my laptop while connected to the network are completely normal.I just wanted to know if anyone out there has any idea what the problem could be and if there's a way to fix it. Could there be settings on the rou

My download speeds have been terrible with this new phone both today and yesterday. So I started doing some speedtests from speedtest.net and the sores were really low comparedto what i got with my old phone. I am from Munice,IN 47304 and have full bars at 3G and below are my results at different times this evening and as you can seeupload speed beats download every time but again these speeds aren't anything to desire. It has taken forever to download /update phone software& app but there have been a few times were it seemed to speed upbut I didn't do any speed test at those timesspeed tests-all are MbpsTime Dload Uload Ping9:05. .06. .26 66610:00. .13 .36 30010:45. .08 .22 67911:10. .39 .40 269 I feell like I'm back at ancient dial up but they are worse then that evenIs this a phone issue or Sprint? Like I said though occasionaly speedhas been better and next time I will run tests again when better speeds. At any rate I'm going to Sprint tomorrow to check with them and run two phones side by side
How to get 3g or better on s2 international on ATT?
Tuesday 07th of August 2012
Hi,Visiting the US and i have an unlocked galaxy s2 LTE originally from korea which i loaded with an ATT sim. I had used it in the Philippines on different networks there and it did 3g speeds on all networks.Model number is SHV-E110S and it was upgraded thru Kies to 4.0.4.With the ATT sim, Calling and texting are functional but for some reason, the mobile network type is only gprs which results to the phone delivering very slow internet speeds. Tinkered around with the apn using just about every apn setting i've seen here and the xda forums but still mobile network type remains gprs.Interestingly, i tried the sim in another samsung phone from ATT and the mobile network type displayed was hsdpa. I switched sims from that phone to my shv-e110s and still my phone's mobile network settings remained at gprs. So i think the sim is not the problem but the phone.How can i tweak the phone so that i can get better internet speeds? I need the speed because i want to use the hotspot function of the phone to share with my family while we are on the road here in the US. Any help would be deeply ap

I have been having a slow internet connection issue for a while now. I bought a new router but it is of no help. I will be contacting my internet provider but here is my question about the tablet. In the same room only a foot apart from each other I am getting drastically different readings from a laptop and the tablet. Using speedtest.net I am getting the following: TabletPing 340 MS, download between 4-5 and upload almost 11. Laptop Pin 12 MS download 21 and upload 15 Why is the tablet so much slower? I forgot to mention once in a while I do get speeds of about 20 on the download but not too often.
HELP: USB & Wifi Tips & Tricks
Saturday 05th of April 2014
so I hear a lot of people mentioning they use foxfi as a source of USB tethering and as far as I know is the only source that works for tethering. However when I use it I get dreadfully slow speeds not even comparable to the speeds I achieve with only the phone itself.I am using hide tethering level 1 and have tried using the Google DNS and without it.I am not sure of the exact build installed on my cpu as Im away from it now but my Phone has Foxfi v 2.15.2 with full version unlocked. but I have tried them all. am I doing something wrong or am I missing something obvious or am I just stuck with dreadfully slow internet speeds and the ability to log on 2 only certain sites?or is there a build prop tweak or some type of setting that I can manipulate to get full speed internet through USB tethering? Also is there another way to get wifi tethering other than what was mentioned in the posts here earlier? As I success with that method works but somehow I have never been able to obtain it again despite a factory reset and data wipe. Forgive me if I am asking questions that are against forum
