I purchased this tablet just a couple of days ago, and right out of the box I started installing every update. Now I'm stuck with a device that can't be used to surf the web: even though initially the download speed is the one provided by my isp (8mbps, it's as much as I can sadly get) after a few minutes or less of use it drops dramatically to less than 1 mbps. In order to fix the issue I tried, in order:

1 - deleting the registered network and connecting again
2 - putting the device in airplane mode
3 - rebooting the tablet
4 - wiping the cache
4 - factory reset
5 - restarting the router
6 - changing the channel on the router

Sadly nothing seems to work, the pad connects properly for a minute or so and then, as soon as I use the connection (downloading something from the market, YouTube and so on) the download speed drops and it gets painfully slow.

Any idea before I have to send it back?

News if anyone is interested: doing some tests with a newer router (that supported 802.11e n) the problem didn't manifest with a test download of 500 Mb (while on my network the speed would drop after about 200 Mb), so I guess I just have to update my old router to fix this.
