how can you tell if wifi N is working after the froyo update? Thanks!
I'm curious as well.
I've been wanting the answer to this question too.
All I have right now is that if I get into settings and click on the WiFi network I'm connected to, I now get 65Mbps, rather than 54Mbps, would be a 802.11g speed, IIRC. 11n could be upto 300 Mbps. I do also noted slight faster download and uploads speeds using Speed Test.
I'm not sure on the phone side but if you have router access permission you can go see the list of connected wifi devies and it will tell you what its connected through
I tried this on my NETGEAR dual band router. I could see the phone's IP and MAC address, but it doesn't seem to want to tell me what rate it is connected at.
However, only wireless n devices will report a connection speed greater than 54 Mbps. They generally are up to 300 Mbps. One can verify this using your laptop.
So have I, but not sure this is related to N as much as it is related to Froyo and its speed advantage.
My service is 35mbit up and down and I have an N router. Prior to the update, I would get 13 down and about 2 up. Now I get 13 down and 5-6 up. However with my iPod Touch which is G only, I always get about 12-13 up and 12-13 down.
I guess I could test by deactivating the N part of my router and see what my speedtest.net app results are.
Do a speed test, if you are using wireless N you will be able to see a clear jump in scores there. Speedtest.net Speed Test - Android app on AppBrain
I just did a test - switched my router to G only. Identical results to when connected via N. 12-13 down, 5-6 up. Phone was connected at "54" Mbps.
Switching back to N, phone is connected at "65"Mbps. Same speedtest.net app results.
WOW!, you get 12-13 down? Is it kbps in your settings or mbps?
Thats wayyy higher than mine on my phone
We are talking about using WIFI here, not 3G. I don't get anywhere near that on 3G.
Before Froyo, I never got above 15.xx Mbps up and never got above 2.xx Mbps down. Now, I routinely get 16.xx+ Mbps down and 3.xx+ Mbps up. My wireless service claims 25 Mbps down, but I don't remember the upload speed. Those numbers are with Speed Test. My connection speed now is "65 Mbps".
edit: I had down and up switched before the edit.
What app are you using to test?
Oops just noticed you are using speedtest
I am getting 18.43 mbps down
Please note my edit to my previous post.
I'm getting 14.6/3.2
WifiAnalyzer is also a great tool to check out Wifi networks. It will tell you which network type it is, signal strength, channel, etc. Nice to have when trying to set the right channel for your own wifi or trying to find the best publicly available wifi signal to use.
It's a nice app, but it doens't say the connection speed or protocol. At least I could not find it. Still, I'm happy to have this. Thanks.
I know, I only get 2-3 mbps down on WIFI lol, and my router is an N router
5651 kbps Down
4715 kbps up
WHAT does that mean?!
What download speeds are you subscribed to? What do you get on the computer?
lol im supposed to have 15 down, 5 up. Optimum sucks in my area!! Cant wait for FIOS to NEVER come here
I dont get it. I used to get 10-13 Mbps on wifi before OTA now I can only get 1.0-1.2 Mbps! I am getting faster 3G speeds! WTF!
I have Comcast 15 Mbps and Linksys WRT-160N router.
