    Semi gaming related not sure where else to post this, as its a gaming question.

    I have a ac 8260 intel adaptor in my asus ux330uak laptop and I sold my gaming laptop after trying out geforce now, 10 hours of mobile gaming out weighed 1 hour of beastly gaming. I'm getting 2 bars in geforce now and sometimes it goes pixelated and its related to my bandwidth and or ping.

    My ping at ookla is 7ms and my bandwidth is 35-78mbs. I should be able to do 1080p/60 flawlessly however I am not sure my my adaptor setting mean or do. not well versed in all the wifi cards, now. Does anyone know of a way to speed up your internet connection for streaming 4k video on youtube and speeding up streaming in general specifically geforce now. Any help would be Greatly appreciated. thanks in advance

    @JRE84 for game streaming ethernet is much better suited than wifi, the latter being subjected to wireless interference resulting in latency spikes. If your ASUS doesn't have onboard ethernet, grab a cheap usb 3.0 Gigabit Ethernet adapter, it will be better than any wifi.
