    When connecting to a network via wifi I seem to be capped at 3600ish kbps.

    If I run a test on speedtest.net at home (via ethernet) I get 38meg. At work (again ethernet) I get 28meg.

    If I use wifi on my desire at how or at work I get 3.7-3.8 meg.

    As this is happening on both networks I cant see it being a network issue, is this an issue with the wifi chip on the desire, or is it a limitation of wifi in general? The router at home is a netgear n150, no idea what they use at work though.

    It's probably a limitation of the hardware on the desire.

    For comparison, I have a htc incredible which has a "n" capable wi-fi card and a "n" router with 35/35 internet speed, and the speed on my phone maxes out at about 10Mbps down and 8Mbps up. Where as on a pc, I get 42 down and 34 up.
