    Please update this article (https://www.digitalcitizen.life/what-is-80211ax-80211ad-80211ac-80211n-wi-fi-6-wi-fi-5/ ) to include wifi 6e and more recent improvements such as multi stream throughputs.

    hi,
    i have a Merusys dual band ac1900 router wifi 5 however my new asus computer gives me a much slowr speed when comparing with my phone and other devices..the computer is wi fi 6 while the router is wifi 5..do i have to make any changes so itgives me the same speed as on other devices..? its usually a 40 mbps diff or more..have a 100 mbps plan..on other devices i get consistent 100 give and take a few..but the NEW laptop usally shows around the 60,s or less even and fluctuates a lot..not that it doesnt reach the higher 80 or early 90’s (very rarely ) but drops down again..anythin to do with the settings like 802.11n vs ac vs ax..etc..what could i change ..all the drivers seem up to date and network connection speed is 866 mbps the max i belive..am new to Windiws so dont know much I have an ASUS K15 oled.any help would be apprecited. thanks
