Rate this thread to express how you think the Xiaomi Mi Pad's Wifi performs. A higher rating indicates that it has excellent range, throughput, and signal strength. Like when you're taking a dump in the bedroom upstairs, do your videos have to buffer or do they come through without interruption?

Then, drop a comment if you have anything to add!

I've had an 802.11n access point in my small apartment home for years, and my MiPad connects to it just fine at 300Mbps on 5GHz using 40MHz channels. Using iperf3, I can sometimes push close to 250Mbps, which I can't complain about.

I recently added an UAP-AC-LITE 802.11ac access point, which can push up to 867Mbps using 80MHz channels. My Samsung S7 can connect at that speed, and I can push over 500Mbps which is awesome. When it comes to my MiPad though, it still can only connect at 300Mbps for some reason.

Does anyone know how many WiFi antennas the MiPad has?
Can it support 802.11ac?

I haven't been able to find any definitive specs on this. I'm just not sure if what I'm seeing is a hardware limitation or a ROM limitation. I'm running crDroid based on 7.x Nougat.
