    When compared to my ipad using the Speedtest.net app it's really really slower.

    I just ran the test side by side and my iPad is getting constant 15 Mbps down versus my Note 2's 1-3Mbps.

    What gives?

    My phone is about 9 Mbps slower than my PC but no where near your experience.

    I restarted my wifi on my note 2 after making this post and it got 10 Mbps but it's always slower than my iPad by atleast 5Mbps.

    Just now it was crawling so I had to restart wifi again. Kinda sucky. I'm running N wireless network. Never had any issues on my iPhones.

    I've never seen a difference between the PC, Note 2, or even my wife's Kindle (Disclaimer: I have not run Speedtest on the Kindle).
    Yet sometimes I think the Note 2 seems faster, maybe because I download smaller things.

    I have a same problem in Finland. After my Note 2 wakes from sleep, wifi speed is so slow that I have to restart wifi again. And then it works good to the next time, when I close my phablet's screen. I'm not 100% shore, but i think this problem started after 4.1.2 update. All other devices working fine in same wifi network, i did already 2 times factory reset to my Note, and once to my router to, changed wifi channel etc. Nothings helps. So if somebody knows something about this problem, please help. My Note 2 is not rooted, all stock. And sorry if my English is not so good.

    Try setting your router to one band. G, N, etc. Instead of multi or auto.

    My wifi was dogging until I read this on a forum and tried it. Even set to G, it flies now.

    Thanks, but I didn't find in my Thompson router this setting. And like I said, I have many other devices connected to the same router, so if I had this setting and if I change it, did it somehow broke other connections?

    Your essentially limiting the ability of your router by doing this. May I ask what router brand and model you're all using that's causing this?

    I don't think, that this problem is in router, because if I turn Wifi power saving mode of in *#0011# menu, it sometimes helps. Now my wifi is all day OK, because I turned that mode of. But it sucks battery to much and after restart if turnes back on again. I read in Sammobile page, that in India was after 4.1.2 same problem.

    Wifi is a connection that requires handshaking between the router and the use device. My own Note 2 gets essentially identical wifi speed to my Sony Vaio laptop (use a Netgear n-band router), but I wouldn't necessarily expect every device to perform the same.

    My Note 2 (and my wife's S3) often have wifi download speeds 10-15mbps slower than my iPad (just now it was 20), though upload speeds are typically higher on the phones. I've been concerned about the slower wifi and thought about making this thread awhile ago.

    My download is usually slower on my phone compared to PC (36 compared to 30) but upload is higher on phone (8 compared to 6). However, I do believe the Speed Test application has upload test issues because this makes no sense at all and it did have issues when LTE came out.

    I don't see lte in my area having 24+mbps down but only 4-6 up... :/ which is what speedtest says it is.

    sorry, i'd like to add something constructive here but can't. I've been working on this problem since mid-January 2013 when I got my note2 and still haven't been able to solve it. I've gotten used to restarting wifi/phone everytime I walk in the door at home (or other hotspots).

    I have been using a Note 2, a Sony vaio laptop and a Netgear dual band router. I get around a speed of 15 mbps on my laptop 1 - 3 mbps on my phone. This is a huge difference. Can anyone tell me why? and if posible, how do I fix it?

    I'm having the same problem as the original poster.

    ALL my iOS devices do significantly better. I'm using the speed test app, the router is an Apple Airport Extreme.

    It's extremely frustrating. I'm going to try and use a DD-WRT linksys with tomato and see if that changes anything.

    Is this a problem with the note 2 that Samsung needs to address?

    Ive had my note for a few days now and I have been experiencing slow very slow wifi speeds on any router. My gs3 does great and my lgog does great too. Its so slow that it takes almost 30 seconds to load a good search compared to the 1 second on my other device. I did a few speed tests on different routes and I get really slow download speeds are 4 to 5 mbps and I get insainly fast upload of 28 to 30 mbps. So I have restered it and im not going to do a master rest because I only had the phone a few days. I might return this big slow brick.
