    Question I dont understand why wifi is slower then 3g

    I use 3g and my moto droid one browser is speedy. I switch to wifi and the browser is super slow and hangs a lot on loading pages for some reason. I have to turn off wifi then turn it back on sometimes to get a page to finish loading. Same page on 3g loads no problem.

    Anyone else experience this?

    Yes I have roadrunner lite and it is slower than my 3g. I turned wifi completely off on my phone.

    I have Road Runner turbo and it is definitely faster. Much faster then 3G.

    it depends, and here are 3 reasons that most likely are why:
    1) the connection you are picking up wifi off of is either being bottlenecked by the grid you are on (i.e - you live in an apartment building/college dorms/development style neighborhood) or your router is only transmitting either a "g" or a slow "b" signal type
    2) your 3g's network is relatively traffic free durring the times you are noticing your 3g is faster than wifi, and vice-versa
    3) a wizard is using your connection all up for his alchemy expierements

    Lol must be the wizard.

    I used the app wifi analyzer and I set my wifi on the channels that aren't used by anyone in the neighborhood so its not that. I'm using a link sys e3000 wireless n router.

    Can you try another WiFi router to see if it's the router slowing you down?
