Any solution yet for the Slow Wi-Fi issue?

    I got my OPO about a week ago. Seems nice enough but the Wi-Fi issue is really making me think about selling it and buying something else.

    I've tried all the performance tweaks and the advanced wi-fi settings tweaks and still the Wi-Fi speeds are significantly slower and less reliable than my Galaxy Note 2 unless I am standing about 2 inches away form the router.

    I have tried a Note 2, Galaxy Tab S, Nexus 7 and the OPO all in different spots throughout the house and the OPO is the only one that suffers from much lower speeds the further I stand from the router.

    I am wondering

    1) Have we ascertained yet whether this is a software issue or a hardware issue?
    2) Have OnePlus accepted that it is an issue at all yet?
    3) Is this a general problem or do I simply have a duff device that needs replacing?

    I don't know whether to keep the OPO and wait for an update or just go back to my Note 2 and wait until another phone is released that I like the look of.

    Seriously? My 1+1 actually picks up signals from dead spots which even my ipad and laptop aren't able to do. And getting max speeds as well.
    Check your router and phone settings.

    This issues has been raised before. I wonder how it will perform if the router is one floor up and am down downstairs about 4 meters away? Of course, there is a concrete wall and a wooden floor separing us.

    Slow Wifi Sir?

    I would suggest the application of grease or WD40. This solves 99.5% of all of my speed issues.

    Especially the WD40, the fumes from that wonderful concoction sometimes rend me so senseless the original problem I was trying to solve no longer matters.

    I thank you

    What settings should I check? The router works fine with all my other devices.

    So far I Unchecked Enable per-app profiles and Unchecked wi-fi optimisation but the phone is still much slower than all the other devices.

    OK, try this, it may not be the phone. Routers are tweeky boxes and you gotta have them set up right. First go into the Router advanced setup and click administration then logs. The logs will display and the date and time the router is set too. Be sure the date and time is correct. A wrong date will mess with the connect to the 1+1. Be sure if you have 2 routers in the house that the channels are at least 6 channels apart. Next, check the type of security you are using and the phone security matches the routers PSK - AES, wep etc. I use PSK - AES. Next, check this. WIFI pirates are everywhere. Your neighbor may be stealing your WIFI. How to check is to, once in a while, go into the routers basic settings and select Attached devices. Another good trick is to turn off the wifi at the router when your not home and at night before bed. The reason for this is a pirate will stop using your wifi if it is not always on. And Last but not all is to use 5GHz instead of 2.4 if you don't have that, eBay has routers, Netgear, 3700v2 or 6300 used, is good for 30 - 50$ and work great.

    Missed one possible note. I hope you all realize that the download speed from any one server depends on a lot of things other than you WIFI and device. Some servers you are downloading from may be busy or have a lot of routes to take or may just be a slow server. Verify by connecting to other servers to see the difference. You probably already knew that but it's worth mentioning because some people just don't know.

    I'm running liquidsmooth lollipop ROM and my OPO is stable and just as fast or faster than my other WiFi devices.

    Just fixed a weird problem I had with MMS. Maybe that issue is with your phone too. Reboot into recovery and wipe the Dalvik cache and reboot. Fixed my problem.

    I think it's a 5ghz WiFi issue, my 2.4 gets good signal range an speed. If I switch to 5ghz then I get like 2 bar WiFi in the same room as the router, however the speeds are still great. Just the range for some reason
