    wifi slow only on my home network, others fast?

    so i have full signal on my home network, on my laptop and ps3 i get around 6meg download, but on my droid i never get much more than 2meg. which sometimes i get that much on my 3g network.. now on other wifi networks around me, one being a linksys(same as mine) and one belkin. i get around 5 meg every time.


    i dont know a whole lot about routers, but i believe i got one of the better/faster ones when i bought mine, and i've always heard belkin isn't as good as linksys. so any ideas what i can do to speed up my droid on my network to more like the other open ones around me?


    i'm using speedtest.net on my laptop and droid to test.


    oh and i did download a app called wifi analyzer and it says i'm on channel 1 but gives it all stars saying its a good one to be on, and my signal is always very high, while one of the fast networks is on channel 6, which is says has no starts and should be changed.

    Do you have an 802.11 N router? There have been some problems reported with the new N standard and the Droid, since N has to throttle itself back to G to connect to the Droid...

    Or try going to the other end of the channel spectrum, channels 11, 12, or 13 if you have it available.

    Yes, I have this router and the problem I have is not only speed but just staying connected. It's got to the point where I stopped using wifi in my home.

    Try setting your router to Mixed mode, so it doesnt have to try and throttle, it can just connect in G mode.

    Sorry if I confused anybody. Darn sympathetic to the problem with the wireless N routers, that's all.
