I have very recently had full fibre installed. Yet I am not getting the same speeds on my computer which in an Acer M3910 running windows 10. As I am getting on my Sony mobile phone. Is this because the onboard WiFi card is not capable of handling the speeds?? Can anyone suggest a suitable Pcie WiFi / Bluetooth card??

( Edited the title to add the model name )

    So some Aspire M3910 models came with a WiFi card installed and I'm going to make the assumption that is what is installed in yours. The cards that came with them back in the day were 802.11a/b/g/n, with n the fastest supported speed. In the real world n tends to run out of steam near 100Mbps, even though theoretical maximums are supposed to be 600Mbps. Your best bet, if connecting a wire to the Ethernet port isn't viable, is to either replace that card with a current version or to get a USB adapter. Take a look at your router specs, if you are on fibre then it is likely new enough to support 802.11ac (what is now called WiFi 5) or 802.11ax (WiFi 6 or 6E), and get the appropriate version to replace this old one. WiFi 7 isn't likely to get approved as a standard for another couple of years, and it will be a year or two after that before devices are available, so no reason to wait. :)
