Hyperoptic have sent me a new ZTE ZXHN H298A router. I'm getting about 175Mbps up and down over ethernet on my PC but only 30-40Mbps up and down at best over Wi-Fi. I'm measuring Wi-Fi speed on my Smart TV's IEEE 802.11ac connection which is two meters away from the router, I don't have a 5GHz Wi-Fi adapter for my PC yet but plan to get one.
It's difficult to find any information on or reviews of the ZTE ZXHN H298A. Does 30-40Mbps over 5GHz Wi-Fi two meters from the router sound normal or is it too slow? Would I see faster Wi-FI speeds if I purchased a different router and just used the ZTE ZXHN H298A as a modem assuming that's possible?
My knowledge of Wi-Fi hardware and protocols is not great.
