    I have a 1Gig/1Gig internet plan and a TP-Link Archer AX6600 router. I've seen different information as to what the Wifi 5GHz download/upload speed should be. I doing the 5GHz speed test with only my laptop from about 10 feet from the router. My laptop is an Alienware M17 R2 with a Killer AX1650w card. The speed test with an ethernet cable to my laptop averages 940 Mbps download and 935 Mbps download. What speeds can I realistically expect when testing the 5GHz band with my laptop?

    You have a 1 GB plan. 940 MB seems right to me. You're not going to get any better when you connect via a wireless network. You'll probably see a bit of a decrease in thruput when using wireless connection as opposed to using a direct connection (Ethernet) to the router.
