    I recently installed a netgear ac600 dual band wireless adapter and my computer has not done better than 27mpbs since.

    I recently installed a netgear ac600 dual band wireless adapter and my computer has not done better than 27mpbs since. Could it be my processor? I have intel core i5 processor 2320 and it calls for an intel Pentium class processor. The attached file will hopefully give the system info needed. I'm wondering if I need a better adapter or possibly a range extender. I am about 50 yards from the router. Thanks for any advice you can give.

    Model of router (standard)?

    "........
    During tests, the AC600 shined when connected to 802.11ac-compatible routers. A notebook connected with an embedded 802.11n adapter to an 802.11n-enabled router averaged about 65 megabits per second while transferring a large movie file.

    The same notebook equipped with the Netgear AC600 and connected to an 802.11n router managed just 35Mbps, but when connected to an 802.11ac compatible router, the download speed jumped to 158Mbps.
