So my internet is 500 mbps and wireless i recieve only 50, wired i recieve around 100. My question is: If i buy and put a wireless usb wifi adaptor in my laptop of 600mbps will i recieve through that my 500mbps internet speed, or at least get closer to it ? Help me please
my router is 2.4 ghz and 5.0ghz AC dual band 802.11ac

First if you are only receiving about 100mbps wired, then your ethernet port on your router or on your computer is 100/10 and not gigabit (1000/100/10). With that being said, with you receiving 50mbps wirelessly, you are most likely running the G standard for wireless. To be able to achieve your full 500mbps (and keep in mind wireless will never be as good as wired due to interferences and such), you would need to use the N standard (up to 600mbps) on both your router and wireless adapter. I don't think that's your actual internet speed.

Not really, a room to reach for but Wi-Fi speed is only so much, you also need to consider the number ISP sold you about the Internet connection is raw, in bits not bytes, and optimal condition rating. There's no such thing as pooling adaptors, at least not for the most people out there.

There are a few things going on with this. First if you are only receiving about 100mbps wired, then your ethernet port on your router or on your computer is 100/10 and not gigabit (1000/100/10).

Let's stop and backup… If you have 500mbs internet then your machine must also be capable of using 500mbs. If you have an older machine with 10/100 ethernet (many still have those adapters) then 100mbs is the best you will get from the equipment you are using! If your wifi is 802.11G which is 54mbs then the best you will get on wifi is 54mbs! (Actually some less because wifi takes overhead.) To get the full bandwidth of 500mbs (if you have that) then your computer needs a 10/100/1000 ethernet card and at least an 802.11N 750 wifi card!
Don't blame an ISP for failure in your computer!
PoohBearPenguin:
Yes, if you have a 802.11AC adapter for your laptop. Your modem or router would need to support this as well.

Even then, don't expect to be downloading stuff from the internet at that speed.

You never get anywhere near the maximum from remote servers, most of which I doubt even support half that speed on their internal network, let alone their internet connections. And also don't forget that many servers use limiters so you don't have just 1 customer hogging all your upstream bandwidth.

you need a 1 GB network card for a 500 mbs(10/100/1000) you need a AC adaptor(ac network card) if you want to achive that speed over Wifi ..
I have a 1Gb speed on from my isp so there is no diference just that yo have a little more speed to help you,but you are still at the mercy of distance (ping response) so if i`m from Romania > USA my ping will be high and my download speed will be not working at full speed Ex: you have 500 MB/s Romania
Download something from USA ,your speed will be at least 300 MB/s(30MB) depending on the server donwload rate,torrent its all about the peers etc…
Kevy:
Yes if you get a updated USB Wireless 'AC' Adapter

Like this one: http://www.amazon.com/D-Link-Wireless-Ne…

But you also need a WiFi Router to Produce a 'AC' 5Ghz WiFi Dual Band broadcast.

I'm not sure if its your Adapter or WiFi Router producing the 'G' Service because you didn't not say.

?:
It is not. That may be the speed of your wireless. Your actual Internet speed will be at best 40 mbps or if you are very lucky 80 mbps.
Rex:
Do a speedtest at speedtest.net and reply back because I don't think that's your actual internet speed.
Ethan:
no…. thats not how data transfer works…. stop tryin, please
