Does the 2013 Mac support AC modes? 

What connection rate speeds are you seening in OSX? 

What security mode do you have set? Try WPA2 and AES only.

Try a manual channel on 5Ghz

Disable MU-MIMO.

Thanks for your reply FURRYNUTZ

 

Yes this 2013 MacBook Air supports AC. Right now I'm getting 200 Mbps upload/download and my security mode is WPA-PSK[TKIP]+WPA2-PSK [AES].

Tried "WPA2 and AES only" but didn't work. Probably is this old MacBook Air.
