    Default Bought one

    Ok so I bought one used asus tf201 and the only issue so FAR the wireless is horrible. Are there any suggestion on how to improve this.

    And can I get miracast to work on this or get this to stream to a samsung dongle?

    thank you

    Wifi was a problem with the TF201 because the metal back caused interference. Asus ended up offering a free wifi dongle that improved reception. Read more here: [Guide] Battery Saving Tips

    I guess this doesn't work since no response.

    I wouldn't necessarily jump to that conclusion. The Transformer Prime is a fairly old device, so there's much less traffic about it on these forums. I suggest Googling it and checking out other forum sites.

    FYI the dongle they gave out was to improve GPS. Sadly, it didn't help the crappy wifi reception at all.. I have yet to find a mod that actually helped the wife much..

    Oh, you're right. Sorry, I must have misread Jerry's article here: ASUS offers settlement for Transformer Prime wireless issues | Android Central

    I've done this successfully on two tf201 devices. It dramatically increases reception range and speed. Now, I can stream Netflix movies as well as my wife's iPad 3. Don't be scared, if I can do it, so can you. If you need copper tape, let me know. I purchased a bunch of it.

    That is great! Thanks for the link. Where'd you get the copper tape? I could use some. Would love to give it a try..
