How many mbps does your plan provide? How many mbps is your current router able to deliver? How many mbps do you actually receive?

This. No matter how ‘fast’ your router is, you’ll only get the speed your ISP allows, and even then it’s never as fast as advertised. It’s always less, and how much less depends on a number of factors.

1gb wired. 400mb wireless is the expected max
Pc Wired is close to a gig but wifi devices only hit like 100

Sounds like your router works fine for now. Yeah you could get higher speeds with a better router, but not sure it’s even worth it, tbh.
