You have to look at the link rate that the client is connecting at under optimum condition..

The class means nothing. Its more for marketing purpose.
More important is 3x3 or 4x4 mimo streams

Sometimes I get 867 (2014 mobile device), 443 (2013 mobile device). I have no idea how to find out for desktops yet.

I just googled 3x3 or 4x4 mimo streams. And I see "4x4 means four transmitters and four receivers" and "3x3 MIMO device with 3 antennas".

So you are saying that the better the router is, the faster speed we get. Then I wonder how "the client" fares.

To maximise wifi throughput, both client and router need to be same 3x3 or 4x4 capable.

Which ever is slower will be the bottleneck.

4x4:4 adapters are unicorns, most devices out there are 2x2:2 or 1x1:1.

1. You can alway get a 4x4 router and set it to wireless bridge mode. (aka Universal Media Connector)

2. Alternatively ASUS PCE-AC88 is a dual-band AC3100 4x4 Wi-Fi PCI Express® (PCIe®) adapter



3. Asus usb-ac68 is a 3x4


4. Dlink DWA-192 is a 3x3
