This also includes all new Linksys products, as Belkin bought Linksys from Cisco. To the OP, that speed needs to be ran through wireless AC to really enjoy it, if not wired. I personally use the Netgear NightHawk and am very happy with it, but as always mileage varies, and the choice comes down to a personal choice. I also hear very good things about Asus's wireless AC line.

Bigger question.... do you need the additional throughput? Are you backing up your laptop to the cloud daily?

802.11ac prices will drop over time. Unless you are upgrading anyways, do you really need it?

Also note, some laptop companies block non-OEM wireless NICs. For example, Lenovo will not let non-Lenovo NICs work in their laptops even if it is the exact same NIC! You have to modify the firmware to enable a Lenovo specific checkbit or buy directly from them.

The real reason is that you can find great mini-PCIe NICs all over eBay from laptop pulls.

So, since you now know my range and that there is a wall, and If i get an AC Wireless card and AC router, what possible speed would it be possible for me to get?

No way anyone could tell you that.

Again... why do you need 100+ mbps? You might decide that you do need but check yourself first.

What about Linksys WRT1900AC ?
It seems to be a newer beast

Answering the questions in the thread coachmark2 is referencing would be great so you can get some better answers.

I've been running the Asus RT-AC680U (AC1900) for 1.5 months now and I love it. I have some AC and N devices, I'm streaming from my HTPC over N to other devices (both local and remote) without a hiccup. We have up to 10 devices max on the wireless network simultaneously without issue. I also really like the built in VPN capabilities. Sure you can get a router and put Tomato or DD-WRT (both of which I've used) to get VPN and other features, they are great, but not everyone wants to fuss with that.

While you may not use all the features on the AC1900, it certainly is rock solid, and leaves headroom as you upgrade devices. Besides....were enthusiasts, we constantly have more than we need!

I would like to second the Asus I have had linksys and netgear routers prior and the speed, range, and reliability of the Asus seems to be miles better IMO.

I've got an ASUS RT-AC68U and it's pretty decent, but you have to stay on top of firmware changes. There have been a few buggy firmware releases that causes things like random reboots, etc. of the router.

When it works, it's fabulous - I have seen 802.11AC speeds of 525 Mbps to my wife's ASUS Maximus Impact VI motherboard that has built-in Atheros 802.11AC Wi Fi with a small loop antenna -- and that's through a wooden floor and about 20 feet away. Not bad at all.

Also have a Netgear R6300 that's decent enough, but it's not as fast as the ASUS even if the firmware is a bit more stable.
