That's more like it. We know that the HTC Evo does not have the best reputation when it comes to WiFi support. That could very well be a thing of the past now that another of those HTC hacking geniuses has figured how to unblock 802.11 n support. We're not even sure why support was disabled in the first place, as the same chip that supports wireless n on a Nexus One running Froyo is being used on the Evo (and the Incredible, and Desire), but it was. Through some careful hex editing the driver was ripped apart and support for high throughput and better range that comes with wireless n was added back in.
Speeds seem about the same (it is still a phone after all and we can only expect so much) but range and signal stability appears to be better, and my setup has it connected as a wireless n device. I sure notice a difference in my
recliner work chair, especially where stability is concerned. Check out the source link and give it a try, it's a relatively painless operation and an easy roll back is provided as well. [Xda-developers] Thanks Keith!
