    So I was having problems with my WI-fi at home and even though i was connected and near my router, it was horrible. I couldn't even upload anything or search the web. So i decided to screw around!

    1. Logged in my router
    2. Changed the wireless mode from B/G to B only.
    3. Restarted my router, once it was done restarting, i went on the phone to test it out.

    results: i now can upload youtube videos quick and easy on my wifi. I browse the internet and its very VERY good.

    EDIT: this works for mode "G" also, i tried using B/G mode but it doesnt work.

    Not a bad idea if you only have B devices in the home. But im running g/n, worth a try if you dont mind switching to B.

    By going with B only you are reducing the bandwidth and the range. I would only do this if you are having a real hard time getting your phone to connect. I have found that the EVO picks up better signals depending on the router in place. For example at my home I have a linksys B/G and get 1-3 bars depending how close I am to it. At my mother-in-law's she has the stock Verizon Fios Router and have 2-full bars.

    might be an option unless you want you use wifi in other places.

    Did it work for you? Just wondering if this actually fixes some of the problems.

    I did this months ago because of some other device and left it like that so I haven't had a problem with the EVO. It worked with my other device.

    It reduces some of the processing overhead for the router, as well as its radios. This "fix" is not limited to the EVO, but for any device connecting to the router.

    is it a router problem? I only ask because I get 15mps with speedtest on my 20mps wifi.
    No problems here
