    More Wifi Adapter question

    So I will have a few questions coming up about wifi settings but here is one I'm very curious about right now..

    Will turning this off or on give me the full speed of my wifi adapter?

    I just want it to have full speed. I've read some of what QoS is and it sounds like it limits things so that certain programs and such can have access to more speed.. however I want my wifi adapter to just always give 100% full speed no matter what for every program at all times.. so why would I turn this on?

    Why not try things both ways and find out how it effects your system? It's my understanding that you may gain a little bandwidth by turning it off but probably not enough to make it worthwhile.

    QOS will have no effect, unless you are connected through a Domain.
