Consistent ping spike roughly every 60 seconds
I haven't really experienced any of the other issues with the 2013 Nexus 7. Wifi speeds themselves are good, touchscreen is behaving fine, GPS seems to work fine. The only problem I am having is that the device's network connection lags for about 3 seconds every 60 seconds when connected to wifi.
I have attempted pinging every other wireless device on my network from my ethernet-connected desktop, and also have pinged my router from each device itself. My Nexus 4 and laptop behave fine, low latency with an occasional 300-500 ms response time at the maximum.
My 2013 Nexus 7 however, does not. It will drop a packet, and then the next two to three packets will be returned at the same time, resulting in response times similar to 2336 ms, 1336 ms, 338 ms for the next three consecutive responses and a pipe recording of 2 or 3. This happens consistently roughly every 60 seconds, almost exactly so.
This behavior results in media streams of anything higher than about 480p (YouTube especially) stopping/having to buffer every 1-3 minutes on my Nexus 7, when my 30mbps down internet can easily handle it, and does on any of my other devices.
Is anyone else having this problem? If not, can I assume it's a hardware issue, or do you think it will be resolved in software updates?
