I didn't know if it would help with packetloss at all and make it more stable. I have a linksys usb ac1200 usb wifi adapter and a asus pce AC56 adapter. The asus adapter shows a max connection type of a not ac while the linksys does support ac. Both get the same download speed and local speed. I have a spare netgear n600 wifi extender so that would be like half wifi and half wired.
