Bluetooth interfering my wifi in my laptop.

A new router should do the trick.

 

802.11ac only has the 5Ghz bands which don't usually mess with bluetooth to the best of my knowledge.

 

Pretty good overview here > https://breech.co/guides/wireless-routers/

As Bluetooth and the WiFi works on same bandwidth of 2.4GHz it is interference with each other. Is there any solution other than changing the wifi band to 5GHz as my ISP is not providing router with 5GHz band. Please tell me a solution.

You could buy an access point that has 5Ghz band and turn off the 2.4Ghz band on both the router and the access point.


Please quote my post, or put @paddy-stone if you want me to respond to you, I may not see your post otherwise.

A lot of things interfere with 2.4Ghz, I would definitely second getting an Access Point so you can use 5Ghz instead.

 

Some days I only get 1Mbit on 2.4Ghz, others 35Mbit, but I consistently get 300Mbit on 5Ghz. (testing to LAN)

Keep in mind 802.11ac does have a 2.4Ghz portion. Most speed ratings are a little misleading because they add both 2.5 and 5Ghz bands together.

While 802.11ac routers (and most but not all Access Points) have a 2.4Ghz portion, its only 802.11n as 802.11ac is specifically a standard for 5Ghz WiFi.  This is one reason why 2.4Ghz even in ideal conditions performs significantly worse.

 

I'm not sure why they didn't improve 2.4Ghz protocols as well, I'm guessing its to avoid the newer standard from dramatically reducing the performance of the vast number 802.11n devices through crosstalk, as 5Ghz was much less popular with shorter range and more channels so less of an issue.
