I have the same wireless card and can do 320 on 250 Ignite. Using WLAN 5Ghz and the Linksys AC1900 router with the same card as you to transfer files, I can do around 500Mbps (60'ish megabytes/sec) which may actually be closer to the limit of the USB flash drive that I normally transfer to.

How far away are you from the AP? 5Ghz fades faster due to it's higher frequency compared to 2.4 Ghz. Also do you have the latest drivers for your Intel 7260? That card series has had a troubled past with drivers, it's been ironed out mostly in the recent driver releases.

That helps isolate things, you may very well be right. If you're getting the same speed over wired then wireless is probably not the issue, the Intel 7260 should be capable of those speeds.

Turns out the idiot at Rogers never actually added ignite 250 to my account and the price he offered me has since expired.tkyoshi wrote: ↑That helps isolate things, you may very well be right.

I had packet loss/routing issues with my line and it took Rogers 4 months (and many calls) to finally fix it.

That sounds about right, 2.4 Ghz is Wireless N (AC is 5Ghz only) only and due to congestion in the band most of the time you can only use 20Mhz Channel Widths (max theoretical 150Mbps), 40Mbps sounds about right for real world.
The AC one is pretty decent, however where they fall behind is more you have a larger property the signal range may not be as good. However if you are happy with your current signal range then they're perfectly fine.

Try relocating your device or your modem to allow for better Wi-Fi signal broadcasting. While brick or concrete walls, metal doors, and aluminum studs are factors that are unlikely to change, since your modem was originally installed the addition or relocation of electronics and other items by you or surrounding neighbours (especially in townhomes or high rise buildings) may mean your modem is no longer in an optimal spot. Items that can affect Wi-Fi signal interference or congestion include the following:
Cordless phones, baby monitors, or wireless speakers
Enabled Bluetooth devices, especially in tablets and smartphones where Bluetooth and Wi-Fi share an antenna
Garage door openers
Fish tanks (water)
Giving six inches of “breathing” room around the modem (or router if used) or slightly elevating it may also help.
We don't know, so it's possible. And it's possible, so it's probably probable.
