It's been almost five years since 802.11n wireless routers and devices became available--also well ahead of the specification getting ratified. Now, IEEE is finalizing the 802.11ac standard. 802.11ac is also referred to as "gigabit Wi-Fi" and will be capable of significantly faster data transfer speeds than the current 802.11n.
802.11ac uses wider channels to move more data. 802.11n relies on 40MHz channels. 802.11ac doubles that to 80MHz by default, with an option to use 160MHz channels. Coupled with QAM (check out this Wikipedia reference for a more detailed explanation of QAM) encoding that's four times more efficient than 802.11n, the new Wi-Fi standard will be capable of transferring data at 433Mbps.
Here's what you should know about the next generation Wi-Fi:

Of course, we don't wear tinfoil hats in our area, so maybe that may be the thing that is messing up the wifi for you
