    I been noticing that my Venue 8 Pro downloads much, much slower that my Ethernet-connnected PC or even my phone by a pretty large margin, so I decided to do some Speed Test's and unlike my PC and phone, which gets ~17mbps down/5Mbps up, the Venue sits at ~3 down/4 up. Tried updating the drivers but no change...

    Anyone else have this problem?

    I don't believe I am having that issue.

    Hate to revive a dead thread but I was wondering if anyone had a fix for this issue. All of my devices, including an android smartphone, tablet and a laptop get 15-17Mbps down. My DV8P gets 3Mbps. I've hooked up a USB WiFi adapter and then magically I get 16-17Mbps with it. I'm at a loss.

    I'm going to revive this thread another time: I'm having the exact same problem (slow download speed only on this device, regular upload speed) with my Venue 11 Pro 7130 (the i3 version).

    What network adapter have you got? Mine shows up under the name "Dell Wireless 1537 802.11 a/g/n Adapter" under the device manager. Maybe it's the same one fitted in the 8 Pro and causing the problem.

    I was able to fix it if anyone is interested.

    Any extra information would be much appreciated.

    Heck, I suspect my sister is afflicted.

    Mine seems to be noticeably slow as well since yesterday.
