    Who is your ISP? What speed are you paying for?

    ISP = Charter Communications (Spectrum)

    And to be honest, I do not have a paid speed service.

    Among a few name changes Charter [in my area Cablevision to Bresnan to Charter now Spectrum] has been a paid-for service, depending upon what is wanted they provide TV, Internet and Voice [phone] either individually or bundled. The speeds they provide have different pricing levels for their customers to choose from.

    Contact Charter and see what speed you should be getting. Seems to me it should be better that what you have been seeing.

    You can set network adapter to specific setup, which can yield some performance gain, but first educate yourself about settings, see bellow 2 links for description of adapter settings:
    Advanced Network Adapter Driver Settings
    Advanced Intel(R) Wireless Adapter Settings

    Next step is to configure your router to optimal settings, unfortunately I don't have general links for this, so if you have specific questions feel free to ask.

    Note that even if you perfectly set up everything it will still not be faster than what you are paying to ISP. so don't get your hopes to high.

    Does my 802.11ac Wireless LAN network adapter requires Bluetooth? I am trying to make sure.

    No, it usually does not need the Bluetooth feature to be able to have Internet access. Bluetooth is useful for mice, keyboards, accessing some other devices like tablets and smartphones that also have it. BT is usually an addition to the Wireless adapter with some computers, also available as a USB Dongle for those computers that don't have it. I use it on my Notebooks for a mouse which helps free up a USB port for other uses.

    Does this mean that you are not paying for your internet service?

    Does that mean you're using your neighbor's service?

    I disabled 2.4GHz, but my Internet connection is still going at the same speed.

    I am still using my laptop to show you my speed test.
