    I have a 15Mbps connection at home. I am getting proper speed while I am connected to the internet via the LAN card. When I connect it through the WiFi, my speed goes down to 12Mbps. I am using the Smart RG SR630n provided by my isp https://www.acanac.com/hardware/smart-rg-sr360n. Is this normal?

    YES... That is normal...
    WLAN is restricted depending on if it is b, n or ac. Each one faster than the one before... n being around 450 Mbs
    and n being 1300 Mbps
    Those are BITS there are 8 bits to a BYTE so - divide your 'speed' by 8 to see what the MAXIMUM speed COULD BE...

    LAN on the other hand can be 10, 100 (normal) or 1000, which is the fastest those are the fastest Mbps ratings....
    eg Lan 1000 is 1000 Mbps 125 Megabytes per sec...

    Hope this was helpful.

    That was quite a reply for my doubt. I am glad to know that the issue is normal. :)
