Hello!

 

So moderator deleting posts when something bad is being said about this adapter.

Now please tell me is this normal? https://www.speedtest.net/result/10089472207

I'm able to achieve 400 Mb/s with my other devices that is near same PC, while this TP-Link adapter able to download at this speed. My router is C7

I tried many different drivers so the question is - did someone managed to fix their wi-fi speed?

@Kathy_Z 

1. Have this adapter for a couple weeks already, it's been working like that since it was purchased.

 

2.

3. It seems that this adapter only working on 2ghz and not 5ghz. I tried also to follow these steps for adapter to prefer 5ghz:

  • Right click windows logo in lower right bar
  • Choose "Device Manager"
  • Expand Network adapters
  • Right click the "TP-LINK 802.11ac" device and choose "Properties"
  • Click the "Advanced" tap and in "Property:" find "Band Preference"
  • Choose "Prefer 802.11a"

 

But it seems that I don't have this option in my settings. Could it be driver issue? Using official driver from TP-Link website (Windows 10 x64)

4. To be honest not sure why i need to change my router settings if all other devices connect properly to 5Ghz and reach ~400-500 Mb/s, while this adapter (which is 20cm away from other devices) manage to reach only 40 Mb/s. It's not router problem for sure. Could it be driver problem?

 

------------------

Update!!!! I downloaded broadcam drivers and band pref apperead in properties of the device. I changed so it could work with 5 Ghz only and now I'm getting 80 Mb/s which is better than it was.

So apparently it is problem with the drivers. How can I actually make that it would work on Dual-Band?

@Kathy_Z worse than it was.

 

Should I make some changes in the settings? Is there any other drivers available that work properly?
