Out of interest, is this between two wireless devices or one wifi and
one cabled?

I have a TP-Link Archer C2 and get a disappointing 190Mbps when it
claims to offer 750Mbps. This is between my wired desktop and wireless
laptop. Just to check it wasn't the terrible Broadcom chip in my laptop,
I also tried it from my phone to desktop and got the same speed.
