Slow gigafiber speeds in windows 10

So yesterday, I tried connecting my desktop to the Jiofiber connection via WiFi and it connected without any problem. I decided to open Steam and download CS:GO and the peak speed I got was 154 kB/s. The download speed was idling around 120-150 kB/s. I thought it was a network problem so I did a speed test on a laptop and my phone and got very good speeds. When I did a network speed test on my desktop, I got a speed of around 200 kB/s (I get more speed than that on my cellular network lol). I cannot connect a ethernet cable either because the desktop and the routers are in different rooms. So, how do I fix this? I am thinking it's an OS issue (windows 10) but I can't be sure. Please help.

what kind of wireless component are you using on your desktop. considering most desktops do not come with wireless support out of the box.

I am using an USB WiFi adapter at the moment.

Problem with your adapter. If you have a 150mbits adapter then it's the max speed your going to get. Please look on to buying gigabit speed ac adapter.

Yes, that could be the problem. I will try with a better adapter and see what speeds I can get.

Is the WiFi router 802.11ac capable and not very far away from your PC? If yes, you can get a PCI-E Wireless Card which will get you pretty decent speeds. It's a bit costly but maybe worth considering. Here's a listing on AliExpress:


This supports 802.11ac and has Bluetooth 5.0 too. The listing says it doesn't support AMD systems, don't know why.

There are cheaper 802.11n cards too for as low as $10 which should also give you better speeds. E.g.:

LOL ofc u get more speed on your cellular network, it's got better radios! Ur like a silver in networking (CSGO reference). OS issue? Windows 10 can easily do 10Gbps like it's nothing. Those cheap wifi usb dongles you get are cheap for a reason, that's because they suck. Ethernet cable is still the best way. You can get 10-25m cat 5e or cat 6 cable for half the price or even cheaper than most ac wireless adapters you will need for the gigabit speeds. Even google fiber who provide a far better wireless router than jiofiber recommend CAT 5e wired networking.

It's a shame most Indian homes don't have wired networking, we always settle or adjust for less.
