Wifi speed slow

Hey all,

 

My TB seems to have a weird quirk in that the wifi speed I get on it is significantly slower than on my laptop.  Both sitting next to the router, both using the speedtest app.  

 

i.e my laptop just pulled down 15Mbps while the phone got 8.5Mbps.  Both are the same on upload, around 4Mbps.

 

Is this possibly a router issue?  Can anyone else test this?

 

 

 

Thanks,

Andy

Download on Macbook Pro 18.73Mbs upload 783Mbs...

Download on WinXP Thinkpad 18.66Mbs upload 783Mbs

Download on TB: 17.53Mbs upload 720Mbs...

 

 

Function of how they build and utilize the network hardware and its capabilities at the session layer.

I am having this same problem.

 

I get speeds over 20 downloading on my macbook pro over wifi and the thunderbolt is struggling to t get 3 down. It is sometimes faster over 3g.  I don't know what the deal is. 

 

Any Help????

The only thing I could find about this is people having the issue with the EVO.  Mine isn't nearly as drastic as 20Mbps vs 3Mbps.  Someone posted on an evo forum about it possibly being a router issue.  Something about WMM inabled. Not even sure what that means but WMM is disabled on mine, and I never had an issue with my G2 like this.  It would pull down the exact same speed as the macbook.
