USB PORT 3.0

So I just got this yesterday and when I plug it into my USB port 3.0 I get the same Mbps as in USB port 2.0which is 866.7 which I should not be getting because USB 2.0 or 2.4GHz should only give 600 Mbps anyone k ow why this is happening and I can sit there and look at it and the Mbps will not even change .1 it's like it's stuck at that. But I get time where the internet will get super slow only on the Ac1900 a7000 I will be on 2 bars or it will disconnect anyone know how to fix this too.

Lots of confusion in there about speeds.

 

I'd lay money on not getting wifi throughput at "866.7" Mbps, so what are you talking about here?

 

The USB speed to the adapter? The speed at which the A7000 connects to the PC?

 

More to the point, is there some sort of problem that you are trying to fix? Something running terribly slow?

 

It might be worth a bit of background reading.

 

Understand Wi-Fi 4/5/6 (802.11 n/ac/ad/ax)

And that screenshot comes from?

 

Could be anything. It looks like modem uptime and connection speed. It tells me nothing about your wifi speed.
