    I got a small update last week, ever since my wifi is under performing. Used to be able to lie in bed and get 30mb up and 30mb down. Now I get a few hundred kbs up and down. My phone still reads 30 up/down. If I get closer to the router I get my regular speeds. Whats going on?

    I concur. It seems as though my Wifi capacity has dropped about 25% after the firmware update. I was one of the people who exchanged their Transformer prime for a Transformer infinity (god I love office depot).

    This Wifi reception on the infinity now seems very similar to what it was on the prime. A noticeable drop as soon as I rebooted after the firmware update.

    Any ideas or is it possible to roll back to previous version ?

    I hate to admit it, but I just went back in there and looked at the wireless router. It just dawned on me that I had moved the router back behind the TV. When I moved it back out in front, I saw a small improvement on the signal from my porch.

    There still may be some issue, but this may have exacerbated it. I may try a hard reset also to see if that helps.

    Yes my 700 WiFi has slowed down since the latest ASUS update. Do they test these things before releasing them or are they they taking the Microsoft approach, making their users do all the testing?
