Welcome to the Community Forums.
Compatible WLAN card listed (whitelist) on the hardware manual (page 88 item 18) seems to show as BGN instead of the faster AC card.
Ensure you have already updated the driver for the wlan and set the properties (in the device manager , power management) to uncheck the box so it will not turn off to power save and run in full performance just like here.
If you still have the same issue maybe you can try testing it with another compatible card just in case the issue is with the card itself.
Another option for a faster WLAN is perhaps using an AC wlan USB card adapter instead compatible to your Windows version. Choosing the best one for you would depend on your location and availability and performance with the signal within your region.
I hope this helps answer your query.
