On the ATV310 I'm finally getting connected but only getting download speeds of 200-500Kbps (my internet is 10Mbps)!

Does anyone else have problems with the ATV310 (Nano) box and Wireless "N" routers? I expect the signal to be a little bit weaker because it does not have external antenna. But not this bad. Does it have the same wireless chipset as the ATV1000 or different?

I am using the Android 2.3 20120606 M1 firmware.

Thanks for your help.
Sounds like the same old problem on the ATV5xx series, Geniatech or the factory that makes them placed the wireless antenna in a really bad spot inside the case. You can take the ATV5xx case apart and re-position the antenna.

The ATV1xxx & higher series didn't suffer from this as they all used external antennas attached to the box.
