hi all,

I'm having trouble with the speed of the connection between my devices and the router(attached image). I'm only getting 300mbps connection. Should I not be getting a lot more on 5ghz AC wifi ? for e.g my desktop is using a intel ac 9260 with updated drivers and I'm only 4 metres away. my phone and laptop also have this problem. What do you think might be the issue?

Many thanks

Try wired.

Edit: Oh wait, just saw the screenshot, that's another issue. You need to select 80 mhz on the netgear router for your devices to achieve link rates such as 866 mbps or 1.3 gbps etc.
It's a link speed issue.

i've already enabled HT160. Would smart connect affect it ?
Make sure your speeds is set to 1733 mbps in Wireless settings.

Use WPA2 AES
160 mhz is not required to achieve 866 mbps.

Smart connect might be placing your devices to 2.4 Ghz. Try disabling SC and set seperate 2.4 Ghz and 5Ghz SSID.
