We can't say if you don't tell us which new router/AP you're getting.

I have never heard of this brand, but looking at the specification page of this router, you can see support for:

  1. Full 1Gbps at the WAN and LAN ports
  2. 300 Mbps at 2.4 GHz, 867 Mbps at 5 GHz

So it should be sufficient if your internet connection has a maximum 300Mbps download. However, keep in mind that that number is a best case scenario; many other factors can result in slower speeds.

 

A wired connection will usually give you the fastest and most reliable connection. As for wireless, the maximal speed will be determined by signal reception, interference and distance from the access point. Try to put as many devices on the 5GHz band for higher potential speeds. 2.4GHz works better over greater distances at less speed.

If the router you choose supports 10/100/1000mbps interfaces and the wireless standards it supports have speeds that exceed 300mbps then yes it will have the capability to fully utilize your ISP service.

It depends how the ISP is getting the broadband to you.

Is the current router plugged into a modem?  Do you know if that modem supports the 300Mbit and has Gigabit port(s) on it?

One way to check would be to connect your PC directly to it instead of the router and see if you get full speed.


Router: i5-7200U appliance running pfSense WiFi: Ubiquiti nanoHD (~700Mbit peak throughput)
ISP: Zen Unlimited Fibre 2 (66Mbit) + Plusnet Unlimited Fibre Extra. (56Mbit)

That's the problem my modem doesn't have gigabits ports,and I want to know if I link my router to my modem will it get full 300 mgbs speed or not?

No, if any port in the chain is not capable of gigabit and only 100Mbps then you'll only ever get 100Mbps max regardless of what your ISP provides you with.
