Check your settings for your wifi. Try changing to either 2.4 ghz or 5 ghz.... also try your router on channel 11.

As for the sound... There arnt any devs that know how to do this yet.

It is fairly easy. You will need to edit a text file in the folder /system/etc. I'm not sure you can access that if you aren't rooted. The file to edit is default_gain.conf. Use a text editor and VERY carefully edit just the speaker section changing the numbers to match the example below on the screen shot. It may distort a little at max volume but drop the level one notch or use a level of 60 where I used 62.

Depending on your device, the file to edit may have a slightly different name. It end with. CONF and the contents will look like the screenshot. I have done this on a Note2 and a Tab3. You have to reboot after the edit.

I don't see it anywhere in that folder...even with es file manager set for showing hidden files. Can we just create the file? Or do it have to be there originally?

mxplayer has an option to use swdecode instead of hw and doubles your volume
i turned my droid 2 into an mp3 player/radio and it does pretty good
i almost don't hear the lawnmower going with headphones in

Sorry I was slow in responding. The file absolutely must be in /system/etc. It will show up after the various folders. It is default_gain.conf. I don't know if a non-rooted user can see that file. Are you rooted.?
I don't see a way to upload a file from XDA Free on the tablet. All you need to do is carefully change a few numbers and reboot and you will have all the volume you want.
