WiFi n link speed
Okay, so I have paid the req'd money to upgrade my Sky router to the latest 'N' certified model...silver top and glossy black base. Needed to so I could get a WiFi signal into the furthest room in my house.
Also, I have a neatgear 300mbps WiFi dongle in my pc and my link speed seems to report 130 mbps..as I expected as the router runs in the 2.4ghz band only.
Odd things is though, that the wireless link speed to this phone (a stock htc sensation from Vodafone) reports a link speed of no more than 72mbps on its best connection..
So my question is, why the slow link speed...running just above 54mbps...and whilst I am sitting 10 feet away from it..!
My hardware settings says this is a b/g/n WiFi phone...so what's the crack...is this phone really a draft n device? Rather than the real deal?
