    Google is supposedly investigating some reported issues with the new Google Pixel C. The main complaint that has been big enough to warrant their attention is that the new tablet hybrid seems to have poor WiFi signal strength and speeds.

    A large enough number of owners have reported this issue to warrant Google's attention. Here's a quote with a description of the problem,

    Interestingly, the issue isn't completely wide-spread, and one theory suggests that it could be a strange incompatibility with specific routers.

    Heh, my laptop at home started doing this exact thing. For some reason it no longer wants to have an acceptable download speed where it normally resides but my phone pulls 50+ Mbps just fine in the same spot.
