This computer has a LAN 802.11b/g/n wireless adapter card. I have a Nighthawk AC1900 router. My internet speeds are showing around 80 mbps but I have upgraded to a 200 mbps speed via my provider. How can I get this computer to run faster, or do I need to upgrade my adapter card?

@boyloco, welcome to the forum.
If your wireless card is only a single band (2.4 GHz) you will have to upgrade to a Dual Band (2.4 GHz / 5.0 GHz) and AC. Even with the upgrade, I am not certain that you will obtain 200 Mbps download speeds. You may have to use a wired connection. Everything has to be perfect to obtain that speed.
I have a 100 Mbps fiber optic connection. I don't have any problem hitting 100 Mbps, but I have nearly a direct line of sight to my Access Point.
Please click the Thumbs up + button if I have helped you and click Accept as Solution if your problem is solved.

Thanks old_geekster (by the way I like your username). When I go to the device manager it list the Qualcomm Atheros 802.11 a/g.n Dualband Wireless Network Module, and when I looked this up it states it can do 2.4 GHz or 5.0 GHz. I will try to get it hooked up with a wired connection. Thanks again for your help.
