    Gigabit Internet over 802.11AC Wifi and Windows 10

    Hello...because it was only $10/month to upgrade from 300Mbps to Gigabit, I opted in. However, the max DL speed I can get over Wi-fi is ~330 Mbps. I have a Linksys EA9500 router (rated at 5400Mbps) and a 3 x 3 Asus PCIE card in my PC. The link speed is rated at the full 1.3 Gbps (per Network and Sharing Center). I believe that the only way to get true Gigabit speed is probably over wired but are there any Windows 10 settings or other settings to boost it higher? Since I'm not getting full speed on single client I guess the other benefit of Gigabit is I could run (3) clients simultaneously at high speed?

    You will not get Gig speed on wireless.

    The maximum on wired is 960 Mbps.

    Thanks for quick response. I know I can't get Gig speed over wireless but I wanted to see if there's a way to get higher than 330 Mbps. Router listed above and PCIE card is an Asus PCE-AC68 (3 x 3 card rated at AC1900).

    Not on 2.4 Ghz

    On 5 Ghz, the range is 433 Mbps to 1.3 Gbps (theoretical) for 802.11ac
