@ unodealmeria ,

 

That story sounds horrific and it is not the only story similar to this that I have read on internet forums including this forum too, it is terrible and that is the reason why I would not recommend that anyone purchases one of these Tablets in the first place or if you do then "do not attempt to send it back to china if it is faulty like most of them are".

People need to take warning from these stories here and elsewhere on the internet and just do not purchase one of these Tablets at all !

If someone already has bought one and it is faulty (it will be faulty no doubt about that apart from a very small minority of lucky people that got one that actually works ok) I suggest that they should seek advice from their local government department of Trading Standards for guidance on what to do, otherwise you will most likely have the same problems as "unodealmeria", also myself and others are having if you want to return the Tablet to China, it is all simply not worth the risk, it is terrible !

Thank you unodealmeria for sharing your story so far, please keep us posted on what happens next, good luck, thank you. :(

@ unodealmeria , That sounds like a Very Very bad story that their customer service department have made up as usual, they are Liars !

 

I don't know where you Live, but where ever you live there has to be a legal Government Trading Standards office that you can contact regarding this and that allows them to fight for your money back.

 

How about that mate ?

This is Shocking mate, but I am not surprised at all as similar stories to this have been posted all over the internet and not just this forum.

 

This Company should be made to pay everyone (including me) their money back for the Tablet and then the company should be forced to close down with the power of International Law !!!!

Just got in two more U30GT2's, I pulled apart all 3 and it looks like I will only be modding the one I purchased three or four months ago.  The new tablets have upgraded wifi antennas which are good for nearly double the signal strength (via speedtest app) It's still not perfect as I am twenty feet away from router and my max speed is two mb short of where it should be but huge (2.5x) improvement over the old style.

I did have a short on my tablet, can't tell without desoldering antenna, and then desoldering more to remove short, replaced stock antenna, getting 2x more performance. Removed, placed laptop antenna, horrible performance, placed antenna all over with no luck, I do NOT recommend the foil laptop antennas as the foil is meant to be grounded to the plate and it doesn't work.  I am considering fashioning my own antenna or purchasing a copper one similar to the stock antenna that came with the tablet.  Not sure if there is performance to be gained there but the first thing I am going to do is solder one of these connectors on: http://www.karlssonrobotics.com/cart/u-fl-smd-connector/?gclid=CNv6vMXByLsCFTJp7Aod5TsAZw 
soldering the stinger and ground of this micro coax antenna wire is a real pain even with the right tools and the appropriate adaptor will let me avoid all the soldering and risk associated with it.  The new antenna will probably be this: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Laptop-Wireless-Card-Mini-PCI-E-U-FL-Internal-Antenna-JS-/390731984026?hash=item5af970ec9a or similar, I will test if the grounding copper foil makes a difference and if it's negative I will remove it and isolate the antenna from the ground plate.  Also if it helps anyone, the new tablets antenna is isolated from the ground plate whereas the one we are having trouble with may have contact with the grounding plate causing some kind of short to exist and the antenna to be bypassed.  If there is not a short on the board, try wrapping your stock antenna with electrical tape.  I will be sure to report back the solution.

Hey sorry for the delay, I had a battery balloon on me and benched the tablet.

Since I'm ordering batteries I figured I would fix the WiFi issue.

I ordered the little u.fl jack, and a few cheap, different length WiFi antennas.

I also replaced the capacitor, the one on the board is .001nF, I put a larger .065nF.

The results are phenomenal, I own ever revision of this tablet and this is the worst version and now it dominates them all.

Before I was only able to get 4Mbs down, now I get 15 which is what I am paying for internet speed.  In comparison the revisions (newer u30gt2) only get 8.

wifi reception also has got to do with the wifi channel you put it on. Like when i put the wifi channel at 12, wifi reception is very good. I also get those results then, not doing the hassel of altering the hardware.

Changing the WiFi channel will only help if you are experiencing interference from another WiFi device in the area.

A good way to stay away from those channels is to download "WiFi analyzer" from the play store.  

The only problem with that app is it only detects working wireless networks, not wireless cameras, baby monitors, or home phones that run in the same 2.4ghz frequency.  

I have installed WiFi in over 2500 peoples homes while working for AT&T, my $2000 meter actually wasn't much better than that cell phone app.
