    I have the latest firmware (jan) on my SP3 and I am having Wifi Speed Issues.
    Marvel Driver= 15.68.3073.151
    I noticed this issue when trying to play streams on Youtube.

    When comparing my SP3 to my Dell Laptop I get the following results:

    I do have a high speed connection at my home.
    Same web site both machines=http://speedtest.comcast.net/
    Dell LT:
    Down = 69.8
    Up = 11.68
    Ping 14Ms

    SP3
    Down = 1.42
    Up =wont compelete the test Ping 10Ms

    Any Ideas as to a fix

    see if your firmware is upto date on the router, the marvel wifi cards don't like older routers...

    you didn't list your router/access point.

    i get file transfers of 45 MB/s to my nas using a netgear R8000 router as a access point.

    Router is CISCO xb3 (3939) with latest drivers.

    I have the same connection issue at other locations as well, not just at home.

    update:
    Seems to be just on 2.4 Ghz connection
    Ran 2nd test after thinking about it:
    I switched the SP3 to 5GHZ
    Down = 82.31
    Up = 11.59
    Ping 16Ms

    Then switched to 2.4Ghz (where it was connected before)
    Down = .71
    Up = wont complete
    Ping 11Ms

    hmmmmmmm..

    I just had noticed my first WiFi speed issue. Normally maxes my 100/5 Internet over 40Mhz channel in 5Ghz band. I was streaming YouTube and walked between access points. My video stopped and WiFi dropped to ~1Mb down. Tried rebooting my access points, toggling Airplane mode, and moving back to the previous access point. In the end, I had to reboot the SP3 to restore normal WiFi speed.
