    Wifi speed laptop Vs Xoom

    Hey, might sound like a stupid question and I did a bit of a search first but when I run speedtest.net on my laptop I get something around 20-25 Mbps, only my tablet its closer to 5. What is the reason for the difference and is it fixable?

    thank!!

    Thanks! A lot of the forum is way over my head (just been reading about rooting/overclocking, don't think I am gonna risk it with my new, week old toy, but its amazing what can be done and the knowledge on here).

    No worries of the rooting.

    If you using Universal Xoom Root to root, you will never go wrong.

    Welcome to the forum.Glad you decided to join us. I just ran a speedtest and on 2.4mhz got 8.6mb, then switched to 5.8mhz and got 26.6mb. Both were on "G" which the Xoom prefers.

    Come again? I assume you are talking about router setting frequency here? How can I change this? I should add I am in a shared house and don't want to interrupt everyone elses internet.

    Thanks

    Yes, I have a dual band router and the Xoom was about three times as fast on 5.8mhz. Without a dual band router you can't change but you can change the router channels, restart the router once in a while and see if there's a software update for the router that might help some with the speed.
