Hi guys. I'm getting roughly half as fast wifi on my PC compared to my Samsung S10.

Router is a TP-Link Archer C3200.

PC Mobo: Asus TUF Mark 1
OS: W10 Pro 64
PSU: EVGA SuperNova G3 850

Using a Asus AC-53 for Wifi as my TP-Link PCI card had to go to make way for other things. It is updated to the latest driver.

This is on my PC:

This is on my S10:

Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks!
 
When you are doing these tests are the phone and computer the same distance from the router? Could also be that the phone has a higher end WiFi adapter than the computer. On the computer click the Start Menu and type Control Panel. Once in the Control Panel go to Network and Internet > Network and Sharing Center and click on your WiFi adapter to see what your connection speed is to the router.

All of the very small 'nano' USB Wi-Fi adapters are pretty terrible. There just isn't room for much of an antenna.
Either go with a physically large USB adapter or one with external antennas - all else equal, they will have much better performance.

Yes, 867 should be plenty for at least 400-500 Mbps (like you are seeing on the S10) but, potentially, every frame can be at a different data rate and there isn't any good way to see the retransmission rate without specialized tools.

I still suspect that the adapter is just crap. Can you borrow another one and test with it?
