    Hi all -

    New here, so bear with me if I'm asking a dumb question (I am by no means a technical type by the way, so please bear this in mind when/if replying).

    Our home wifi router gives my wife and I perfect wifi speed & strength for both laptops, both i-touches & my iPad; however, bought my wife a Nexus 7 yesterday & it always states 'out of range' unless I am within 5 feet of the router (as this is upstairs in a spare room, this is not exactly ideal...)

    I've seen elsewhere there are possible issues with the Nexus 7 & also the Kindle Fire HD (which is/was an alternative for my wife) & could be down to 5ghz or 2.4ghz transmission on the router??? Told you I'm not technical

    Any advice? Should the Nexus 7 go back in favour of a Kindle Fire HD (which boasts better wifi connectivity)?

    Many thanks,

    Jim Garten

    I'd like to find out too. My Mum's planning to upgrade our internet to a faster speed and I'm worried about compatibility.

    I'd guess that you got a defective Nexus. Everyone is different, but I'd ask for a replacement.

    The Nexus will work up to N, and there's nothing faster at this time, so it should work.
