Is anyone having slow WiFi response on their Xoom? My DroidX gets great speeds, and the XOOM crawls on the same network. It's a fairly new NetGear wireless G/N router. Security is set to "WPA-PSK [TKIP] + WPA2-PSK [AES] "

Last night, I had my DroidX and XOOM conntected. The DroidX downloaded a 12mb file in seconds. The XOOM took close to 20 minutes. Any suggestions?

I also am using WPA PSK TKIP and i have no issues on my droid x or my xoom

Have you power cycled the xoom, there was some updates pushed (market and other apps)

Yeah, I had powercycled. I'm going to stop on the way home and try a Starbuck's WiFi and see how that is between the XOOM and the X. If I can't resolve, I'll hit the Verizon Store tomorrow and try on their WiFi. If the result is the same there, then I'll exchange it. At home I'll probably change to WEP and see if that helps any

OK, fixed it. The only thing I hadn't tried was to reboot my router. Did that and I'm flying on WiFi now. Never had to do that when I connected new devices....oh well, all is well.
