    I have 30meg broadband and have tested the speed using the Microsoft Network Speed Test app on my Windows 8.1 desktop and my Windows 8 phone and it does average at 30megs download. However when running the same app on my Vivotab RT running 8.1 as well, the speed averages between 5-6meg download. What the heck is going on? Why does my tablet not have the same download speed as my other two devices on the same network? Anyone else? Are there any tweaks i can do in network settings?

    Please remember that 8.1 is beta software. Anything is possible.

    Windows 8.1 and Windows RT 8.1 aren't the same. Plus your computers will have different hardware, meaning different drivers (or the same driver with different results).

    I have disabled some protocols which has helped. Got as much as 20meg speed now.
