I have a Cisco DPC3941t 802.11 ac router in my living room. In my bedroom I have a desktop with Windows 10 and I recently installed TP-Link Archer T9E wireless card and getting 550 Mbps on 5 Ghz. I shared a network drive from that computer and when I copy files to my macbook pro (450 Mbps wireless connection located in bedroom), I am getting only 4 megabytes/sec of transfer rate. Any reason why so slow ? I feel like the router and network adapters are pretty good and I my macbook pro has wireless N network adapter. My internet speed on both desktop and laptop is 120 Mb/s down and 13 Mb/s upload.

Internet speed doesn't come into play with just two devices connecting over the lan.

 

My guess is the mac's n adapter is the bottleneck.  Might get a ac adapter and try that.

 4 megabytes/second seems too slow even for an N adapter ? My macbook is only 2 years old.

most likely its a communication between the two issue.  you can try setting the router to only n to see if that makes a difference.
