Sadly, this procedure didn’t resolve my issues properly. I would advise those having similar issues to attempt to switch the router to send only 802.11G signals (Smartphones apparently look for one signal – if two are found, the connection becomes slow). if your router setup utility doesn’t allow that, try to find a firmware upgrade for it then try again. The router I was using had no Firmware Upgrade (Unicorn Pre-n MW800). Eventually I bought a more recently manufactured wireless router. This one allowed me to configured the router to send 802.11g signals ONLY. I also configured WEP2 encryption AES, and chose an uncrowded channel from the router’s setup utility. The ‘wifi manager app’ was useful in finding the best channel. Now my connection problems are completely resolved.
