Maximize hotspot connection speed
I have two Archer T3U Wifi adapters that are connected to two computers with Windows 10. I set up a mobile hotspot on one of the computers and connect with the other to it. Ths works, but I cannot get the nominal speed of the connection above 173.3 Mbps (displayed in the virtual adapter properties, I measure around 130 Mbps, which is what I would expect with that connection speed). The adapter advertises a speed of 867 Mbps, how can I use the full bandwidth for my hotspot?
Things I already tried:
1. Install driver from tp-link website (also checked that it's for the correct version)
2. Use the windows recommended driver (installed via device manager
3. enabled 802.11ac as wireless mode instead of auto (this works, in task manager the connection is shown as 801.11ac, auto mode enables the slower 802.11n)
4. disabling 2.4 GHz (the settings page for the windows mobile hotspot displays a warning that some devices may not be able to connect to 5 Ghz networks, so I think it actually creates a 5GHz network)
5. I looked into "windows hosted network", but it seems this is not supported by the driver or hardware.
