    Default Nexus 10 poor WiFi Reception

    Has anybody noticed this problem?

    As soon as I move into another room, I lose most WiFi bars and 2 rooms away, reception is sporadic.

    I noticed posts that this could be a problem with some Nexus 7's.

    Looking forward to your thoughts.....

    Are you asking about Nexus 7's or Nexus 10's? I have no problems with Nexus 10 WiFi reception. And, in fact, it is much better than any model iPad's. Not quite as strong as my Lenovo Twist running Linux, however.

    Nexus 10.
    Glad yours is working fine.
    I've read about problems with the 7.
    I've moved my router around a bit, but no difference.

    There have been some connectivity issues on the N10 for some people (not me), but have seen no complaints anywhere on the forums about range or performance.

    Thanks for your thoughts CRXSSI.
    You seem to know your stuff from other threads.
    If you hear on how I can get better WiFi connectivity for my N10, please let me know

    My Linksys router had poor WiFi on my laptop, so I bought a new N router to go with our new tablets. The N10 now works anywhere in our home. Mine is on 5ghz, my wife on 2.4, no conflicts.

    Caveat - our house is only 1600 sq ft.

    My nexus 7 is fine on wifi. Gets a better signal ( as in number of bars shown) that my TouchPad running CM9.

    I wifi from my note 2 to my nexus 10. I seem to have connectivity issues occasionally but over all the connection seems fine.

    I have been trying to follow The Following from Fox but rarely can I get through the episode without a connection issue. I

    I side loaded Flash 11.3 and hence Abc.GO.com works fine. So I believe the issue is Fox and not Nexus.
