    Default TCP Socket connection sometimes takes several seconds

    Hi all, I have server/client application. The server is waiting with a serverSocket.accept(), once I do the new Socket (...), most of times the connection is established immediatelly, but sometimes it takes up to 12 seconds to be established. I am only considering the time of invoking new Socket (...) on the client side. I am pretty sure the server is free and waiting.

    My Server just accepts a connections and immediatelly creates a Thread to attend what the client asks and returns to accept again. The client only does very fast and light operations.

    PD: The client is an android tablet and the server is a PC.
