So my comcast's speed is 200 Mbps when I connect the Ethernet cable to my PC, but only 90 Mbps when I connected the Ethernet cable from a modem to the wifi router! Is there any router can handle the original 200 Mbps speed? thanks alot modem- NETGEAR CM400 router- Asus RT-N53

Try an Asus RT-AC68U. I've heard good things about it.

Make sure your receiving end can handle 802.11ac or you're wasting your time.

802.11a : 6,9,12,18,24,36,48,54 Mbps

802.11b : 1, 2, 5.5, 11 Mbps

802.11g : 6,9,12,18,24,36,48,54 Mbps

802.11n : up to 300 Mbps

Make sure you're using wireless N on your router?

The issue could be that you might be only sending a regular 10/100 signal from your modem to your router. (so it'd top out at ~100mpbs, depending on interference, distance/packet loss, etc...

But, tbh, i don't know networking well enough to do more than look at spec tables on websites.

And as kschendel said, make sure your computer supports the speed you're trying to push to it.
