You tube and browsing speeds -FIX (for me anyway)
Ok so since I got my XOOM a couple of weeks ago I was thinking there was a general problem with the wifi speeds. I had problems with the youtube app in particular. It would buffer for ages and then sometimes not even show the vid. I also saw problems with other streaming data such as game downloads and in general the wifi speed was really dissapointing. I searched all over the place for a fix and found a few things to try like clear the cache from the you tube app as well as upgrading to 3.1 but nothing seemed to work until today
I downloaded wifi analyzed from the market which is a free apo that does exactly what it says on the tin, after a quick scan of my access point it advised me to change my channel to 6 from 10 after doing that my XOOM now flies and I mean flies - everything fro. General browsing to the annoying buffer times on the you tube app are now gone!!!!!
I am not saying change your channel to 6 - this was just the best channel for me so grab yourself a wifi analyzer app and give it a go - I hope it helps someone out there because this has resolved the last of my problems I had with my lovely XOOM
Let me know how you get on
