Can my PC stop holding me back so I can be free to wander to super-highway?

As I now have FTTP, I'm getting download speeds of 300 or even 400Mbps ... on the iPad.

On my PC, I'm lucky if I get (wifi) 60Mbps!

I imagine it's that I have a crappy wifi adapter. Some info I found on it:
Name:   WiFi
Description:   Qualcomm QCA9565 802.11b/g/n Wireless Adapter
Status:   Operational
Maximum transmission unit:   1492
Link speed (Receive/Transmit):   144/72 (Mbps)
DHCP enabled:   Yes

This seems to suggest that I should be getting 144Mbps.

May I ask two questions:
1. Can I get 144Mbps on this adapter by some sort of jiggery-pokery?
2. Do I have to buy another one to get up to 300-400Mbps?

Cheers.

You'll have to replace it - the 144mbps is a theoretical maximum, you'll never achieve it in practice - you'll also need to go 802.11ac, which is 5GHz, and that means you're going to have to sacrifice range for throughput.

That’s pretty.

Don't forget the FTTP end... For max speed, ditch the domestic router and get youself a lot of gaming wifi bandwidth...
