    Is there any way to swap assignments for WIFI so your downloads use the uploads Channel?

    I visit a WIFI connection often at my mothers nursing home where they have swapped Downloads for Uploads somehow in thier router . I ran Speedtest.net and it shows Downloads at about 3 and uploads at about 9. This is totally the reverse of what you think is normal.

    Is there an app that reverses uploads for downloads in android? My Nook HD Plus is still stock and not rooted. Think for an app to get permission to do something like this it would have to be rooted.

    If it did work my download speed would almost triple... at this location...

    There is not separate WiFi channels for upload and download. Up and down speeds are determined by other factors.
