    Slow Wi-Fi with Surface

    Especially the upload. Great for Dropbox, SkyDrive, etc.

    Slow Wi-Fi with Surface

    No. 1MB = 8Mb. Huge difference! Like 16 oz = 1 lb or 12"=1' Sadly both begin with a "b" :) Obviously Wi-Fi even at the reduced speeds of 4-5MB/s (32-40Mbps) are sufficient for most people for surfing the net. But for people like me who want to view 1080p videos stored on my server it isn't...

    How many NEED or WANT a Surface Pro

    Pro is too heavy for a tablet. I wish there was a Surface "Semi-Pro" with an Atom. No fan or weight and full Windows 8.

    No EXIF from Surface's camera?

    No EXIF from Surface's camera?

    The pictures that I have taken with the Surface have no EXIF data whatsoever. Am I doing something wrong? Other modern tablets/phones store not just date/time and camera settings (like aperture, shutter speed & ISO) but also latitude and longitude from the GPS. On the Surface I get zilch...

    Slow Wi-Fi with Surface

    Thanks for this helpful post. So I guess that this a known limitation/problem with the Surface. By the way, I tried a friend's Acer W510 tablet on my network and the transfer speed was the exact same as the Surface's 4-5MB/s. The Acer W510 is a Windows 8 tablet based on the Clover Trail SoC -...

    Do Surface RT and Surface Pro use the same Touch/Type keyboards?

    Slow Wi-Fi with Surface

    My Wi-Fi router is the Apple Airport Extreme (latest generation). On my MacBook Pro Retina if I copy files from my server I get speeds of around 18MB/s. On my Surface it is only at about 5MB/s. Why so much slower? Isn't the Surface also 5GHz 802.11n? Is there something wrong? Thank you.
