    I got a Treo 800w as a backup phone. It was cheap and had wi-fi.

    I have a Treo Pro, which rocks, and Wi-Fi is very snappy.

    On the Treo 800w, it's dog slow.

    Am I missing a setting?

    The network is all the same, nothing is blocked, etc, etc. This is a device specific issue.

    Thoughts? It's seems odd, as everything else (apps, etc) seem to be snappy.

    The Treo 800w's inferior hardware can't pass the data as fast.

    Regardless of whether the exact same WiFi radio is in both the Treo 800w and Treo Pro, the rest of the device components that must manage and pass the data make a big difference. The Treo Pro is simply a newer device with better components.

    This is the real deal that means more than it may be given credit for. Even with WiFi, components such as CPU and some others come into play a great deal.

    I had a similar problem when I first got my 2nd Treo 800w. Make sure Power Saving mode is off in the WiFi settings. I was barely breaking 100kbps on WiFi before I turned that "feature" off.

    I know that you posted this 100 years ago, but I've always needed to reboot my 800w to re-establish WiFi after I'd used it. Removing the power-save (as you suggested) has eliminated that problem. Thank You!
