I'm usually pretty good with this stuff being an IT techie but this one has me stumped. I am new to wireless AC and am getting shocking performance from it. I cannot seem to connect beyond wireless N speeds. Would greatly appreciate some help and will give all the info I can.
I have an Orcon stock NF18ACV router and am on a 950/500 fibre connection. The laptop I am trying to receive good speeds on is a 2017 HP Omen. The NIC is a intel dual band ac 7265.
Quite simply, the settings are stock, I have great reception. I have updated the router firmware and wifi card drivers. I have no major wireless interference (2.4GHz is fine). I sometimes get 150mbps down but at the moment it's sitting at 30mbps on a speedtest quite often the upload being or spiking a lot higher but only around 90 to brief moments of a bit higher speed. I have 0 other devices connected to the 5GHz. The connection is showing at 300mbps. It also doesn't matter if I am write beside the router. or 7 metres away where my laptop generally is.
