T440s Intel Dual Band Wireless-AC 7260 with wireless-N router

What is the highest speed possible when connecting the wireless-AC wifi card to a wireless-N router?

 

My wireless-N machines get 100Mbps speeds on my wireless-N router but the wireless-AC machine only gets 35Mbps.  I understood "AC" to be backwards compatible with "N".  Is does connect but the speed is much lower than the "N" equiped machines.

 

Do I actually need an "AC" router?
