nexus 7 wifi
« on: September 11, 2012, 01:22:37 PM »
Hi
im looking at getting a nexus 7 tablet next payday. now my brother said i have a 802.11n wifi router at home and that he had heard that the nexus in the UK and US had been reported to have had a lot of trouble with n type routers.
is this true?
ive looked around, google and searchbar and found many bewildering answers relating to it, 2.4 ghz, 5ghz, router setting, best make and model ect. but i dont understand a fraction of it.
all i really want to know is, if i buy it will it work?

sorry for such a basic question

Hope somebody can help me out on this

Paul

What router is it?

I have a Virgin Media Super Hub and apart from the usual problems with the build quality of the Super Hub my Nexus works fine with it, the SH is an N driver type.

I have a netgear and it connected fine  :) BUT my son has a Buffalo and the Nexus 'sees' it but will NOT connect  :( .  Not sure why yet.

First check to see if the Buffalo router has MAC Address Filtering enabled. If it is add the N7's MAC address to the allowed MAC addresses or disable the filtering.
