    Default Atrociously slow wifi speeds...

    Has anyone else run into this problem? It seems on any network I connect to with the DNA I'm averaging between .26mbps and .31mbps but normal uploads of about 1.36mbps. I've tried adjusting the phone's wifi as well as two of the routers I was connecting to, all I want to do is watch Netflix

    I just ran Speedtest and got 23.01 mbps up and 5.60 mbps down. Sounds like you have an issue.

    Same here on my S3. I really want to know what is going on. It will download things really slow on WiFi but when I do a speedtest it tells me i'm getting ~40mbps so I don't know what to think or what could be the issue. I wonder if it's an app. I don't think it was this slow before I downloaded Lookout. Do you have that?

    Nope I don't have the Lookout app installed, however this has been a constant issue since I received the phone this past Monday. I really am quite clueless to what could be causing this besides a faulty part/software issue at this point.

    Try turning off your Mobil Network and run on Wifi only, let us know what happens

    Well I changed my up address on the phone to static and it more than doubled my original speed but it is still far below what it should be at. Also I did try it with the mobile network turned off but there was no difference in up or down speed tests.

    Welp. I did some more speed testing on my home netork with my laptop and iPad and have gotten the same problem. It has to be with our Netgear n600 router or roadrunner internet although I was okay with just having this problem with one device, not everything I use! Sad day right here
