Slow internet speeds

I have 1,000 GB speed through my internet provider but am only getting around 350 GB wifi speed on my router. Any suggestions for improving the speed is appreciated.

Re: Slow internet speeds

If you're hitting 350mbps, you're actually doing pretty decent with the r7000. 

Actual testing of AC1900 devices show around that speed.

Re: Slow internet speeds

You won't hit gigabit speeds over wireless AC. 

You'll only hit gigabit speeds over wired or over an AX router (decent one, not cheap) and AX device. 

What router are you using? 

How far from the router is the usb device?

Using Model R7000 and router is just below, less than 3 feet from tv.
