    Just got the Wife a S3, returned one because it couldn't transfer anything from my network. Now the second one is transferring files but at much slower speeds than my SP3 or even our cell phones. My SP3 get 25+MBs transfer speeds and phones get something around 10MBs. The new S3 is getting 500KBs-4MBs is this normal? I believe I have all updates installed.

    Speed test also caps the S3 at 14.72MBs where the SP3 caps out over 66MBs

    fixed the issue by installing an older driver. Now I will just have to do this again when Windows decides to update the driver again...

    Tried that but it wouldn't see the driver... Will try again when I haven't been working on multiple computers and tabs all day. Might throw one at the wall if I keep going ;-)

    My S3 also exhibits low file-transfer speeds via WiFi, even when it's sitting a few feet away from a WiFi AP. While trying to install software and files onto the S3, I finally just gave up and bought this for home and office use:
