    Angry Exchanging my Nexus 7

    Had it for less than a week and it would not establish a high speed connection with my router an home, it only connected at 1MbPS, whereas my Kindle Fire (original) was alway at 54MbPS and had no problems streaming video throughout my apartment... The Nexus couldn't even stream vid when I had it right next to the router ... It amazes me how Google put out a product with such inconsistent quality control, it truly is hit or miss if you get one that works perfect right out of the box... Hoping the next one with have better Wifi connectivity

    Are you sure the problem wasn't at least in part due to the router? I'm no tech wizard, but I do know that some routers can be a little temperamental. 2 questions for you:

    1. Did you try connecting your N7 to other wifi hotspots, like at your local Starbucks? If so, did you get get better download speeds there? In that case, it may be an issue with your router.

    2. Did you try rebooting your router and then trying to connect your N7 via wifi again?

    There have been a few threads on this forum addressing wifi connectivity--you might want to check them out first before doing the exchange.

    I did try to connect at a Barnes & Noble and it would not contnect at all, it showed that there was open Wifi available but it just never connected properly... And I thought of the router but this would be the ONLY device out of about 8 that returned such slow speeds

    In regard to one device out of multiple devices being the only one with a slow connection, it's been known to happen. Still worth trying a router reboot, which is simple enough.

    Also, I assume you tried rebooting your Nexus 7. It may be a pain in the ****, but you could also try doing a factory reset of the tablet as well. If all of that fails, then I would agree with an exchange, and hopefully you won't have further problems.

    Given how badly Asus has performed for you, I'd return it and head over to an Apple store and leave this ugly episode behind.

    Apple, of course, is immune to ugly episodes (cough cough Antennagate, cough cough Apple Maps).
