    TP-Link T8E showing a wireless N protocol with my AC router

    Hello all,

    I am connected to the 5 Ghz band through my AC T8E and have a TP-Link AC wireless router but the status of this adapter in Windows 10 is showing the wireless N protocol versus AC and I am not sure why. Can someone please provide some insight here? On my old build with Win 10 and this same adapter I saw the AC build but now only showing N?

    Thank you.

    Check the security settings of your router and set it to WPA2-PSK (AES), See if that helps.

    Here is a little bit of info on the various modes of encryption.
