It says (AC1750 Wi-Fi) that it is an AC router - faster than N but supports N. I have a Cisco AC Wi-Fi router that matches with the AC card on my laptop.

So that is what you are seeing in the link you posted.

The link you posted does confirm that this supports N

Yes. AC must be downward compatible to N or little would work

Yes, I have this one in my home and it's really fast
With FIOS connection my download and upload speed is almost 1GB

Today it's very cold and speed is a little a bit slower  but still fast

On Wireless I've got maximum 750Mbps

Those are some nice speeds, but isn't that is your connection to the internet and not your LAN

Tom CieslikIT EngineerCommented:
Yes, I understand but If I can get this speed from device connected to my LAN then speedtest is between this device and some external server right ?

I've tested this using my phone and computer and is same moment to same server speeds are different so I assume speedtest is testing speed from application not from gateway

Think of it this way: B was the original, G was the successor to B, N was the successor G, and AC was the successor to N. While it's a bit of an oversimplification, it does at least address your question.

John answered the other part in his very first post, that it's an AC router.

Kind of, but not that simple.

AC is the successor to N but only on the 5GHz band.  It will never work at 2.4GHz, so AC is not the successor to N on that frequency.

JohnBusiness Consultant (Owner)Commented:
True about 5 GHz but most of these routers including the one at the beginning are dual band so that both cards (N, AC) work at their prescribed frequencies / speeds.

Craig BeckCommented:
Yep, although in the next few years expect to see 2.4GHz devices become less commonplace.  With AC only working at 5GHz and speeds increasing, 2.4GHz won't cut it for much longer :-)

So this is an
ac router
that supports b g n ac
I noticed that I have 2 signals.
I think the 2 signals are 2.4 & 5

The router is dual band and will work with 2.4 or 5
