    Hello All,
    I have a weird issue with my Note 3. I also have 2 Samsung S5's in the house.
    I have a 150meg Wireless G router. TP Link.
    My Samsung S5's connect up at 150 meg but I NEVER see the Note 3 over 72 meg.

    I take my Note 3 and Samsung S5 to other places and I often times see my S5 connect up at faster speeds than the Note 3.

    Does the Note 3 not do 150meg wifi??

    I thought it had the same wifi chip set as the S5.

    Any help on this would be great.

    Thanks,

    The best I get with my Note 3s on an N router is 72mbps. It's probably not the hardware, but the modem. (No single connection on the internet is going to go much over 2mbps these days, so unless you're copying files to or from another computer on the network, or downloading a few dozen files at once, it won't make any difference - 72mbps can handle 36 simultaneous 2mbps downloads. The phone probably couldn't keep up with that.)

    It's just weird. I have a 15 meg connection at home and 50 at work. I've tried a couple different routers and the best I get is 72 meg. But the 2 S5's in my house do 150..
