    Got this problem of low speed when the computer running Windows-7 64 bits.
    Windows-7 is up to date and every driver is also up to date.
    Test done at 6 feet from the router.
    Router is Netgear Nighthawk R7000 with the firmware up to date.

    It run at 14 to 18MB/s (Genie App report my iPad at link speed of 866Mbits)
    while on the same computer booting in Windows 8.1 run at 40 to 60MB/s !?!?!?

    Windows 8.1 video test:


    Faster on an Mac Mini Yosemite; video test
    (blue number is the actual download speed in MBytes/s)


    Anyone have idea on why this big difference in AC speed Between windows-7 and Windows-8.1 ???

    Sorry I don't know. But maybe you should try posting this over at Windows Central as well.

    Good idea Karen, I did not know that they were a Windows forum on iMore forum.

    So I just did the post there.

    Thx

    There's also a "sister" site devoted to all things Windows. That's actually what I meant by Windows Central.
