Recently I purchased Verizon FiOS' Gigabit (980Mbps DL, 880Mbps UL). Doing a quick speedtest.net check, I am not getting anywhere even remotely close (low 8Mbps, high 27Mbps).
My FiOS modem/router combo is on the main floor, and my system with a USB Wi-Fi adapter is in the basement (signal is poor as my phone will constantly drop Wi-Fi in the same room).
I've read that for a USB adapter to support those speeds, it needs to be USB 3.0, which it is.
What should I do here?
Get a better modem/router and amp the signal?
Get a better USB adapater?
I plan to connect my laptop directly to the mode/router today and test again; if speeds are relatively the same, I am not getting what I am paying for!
Wired laptop test returned 258Mbps/413Mbps; much better than the Wi-Fi, but still only 30% of the speed (D/L wise) I am paying for.
