Am I correct in assuming that if I have a 50mb internet connection and a Linksys EA6500 router (802.11ac) that I should be able to achieve 50mbps speed on the speedtest? I do when I'm using a wired connection, but my new MacBook Retina doesn't get more than 12mbps and I have full signal. I have a friend with the same issue at his house and I can't figure out what's going on. Thanks for your help!

Here is what I would do in your situation.
Default/factory reset the router.
Do a simple wireless setup only changing the ssid and adding wpa2 with aes and setting the psk.
Leave all other settings default. No Mac filtering, no forcing wireless speeds, etc.
Do not make any other changes to the lan or wireless setup until this basic setup test is performed. Try again with a speed test. If that fails then call cisco.
It should take you less than 10 min to get this working in a default state. Go to the full post
