Hey guys,

I'm experiencing extremely slow speeds on my iPhone 4 with the Orcon Genius Router.

Is anyone with the Genius router and has an iPhone 4, could you do a speed test on WiFi and let me know your results so I can compare?

I had a few people compare on Twitter with other ISP's and some are getting 15-20Mb/s on their iPhones where as I'm getting a maximum of 1-2Mb/s, sometimes dropping down to 0.30Mb/s.

I've tried doing some reading, tried turning off 802.11/n and only using 802.11/g which only helped slightly for a minute, then it would go back down to crawling speeds again.

I've tried turning off QoS too but nothing is helping.

My laptop connected via WiFi is getting a good 10Mb/s, so it's not my connection.

Any ideas?

Disregard this, was messing around with the settings a bit more.

Changed the channel from "Auto" to 13 and now the iPhone is maxing out my Internet connection.
