Hi all

So I have the the Poland official kitkat rom

Not sure though the problem started from then

Anyways the thing is the connection speed I have at the house is 8mb/s

And from all the devices I get a straight and consistent 7mb/s
Ex ipod pc galaxy s2/s3

Except for my note 3, it hardly gets to 3mb/s

(Using speedtest app)


And always goes like 0.5mb/s to 1 and changes unstable

Searched alot and tried everything but none got me to a solution
Ex in advanced settings in wifi removing the tick
Removing the powersaving wifi in the service code


Looking for further help

Thank You

- Change connection type to static on phone
- Reset router
- Manually add phone's MAC adress to router

Tried any of these?

Keep the phone wifi setting default, this could be the router end issue. Like other said reset the router and then see. If not solve, in router setting make the wifi channel from auto to 6, 11 or 13. From DHCP give your phone a fixed IP. After all done when connected to wifi, go to setting and press your connected wifi it will popup with a status window, check the link speed what its showing.

*** From my personal experience DO NOT trust the Speedtest mobile app. Mine internet is like 5mbps but many time it showed over 20mbps download speed.
