Can someone explain why my LG G2 connects at 39 mbps to wifi router N(150 mbps) ?
I have 2 other phones and tablet and they all connect to 150 mbps link speed and internet speed is realy blazing fast.
On my G2 I got around 2 MB/s MAX, usualy ~ 1 MB/s (I thought that G2 supports all kind of wifi standarts - a, b, g, n, AC ?)

P.S. router has latest firmware! No other devices has this problem.

Are you connected over 2.4 or 5 GHz? That can make a huge difference. Use 5 GHz band if possible.

In the wifi settings choose 5gz only and see if it will connect.

No difference at all, I've tried to use 11N only and bgn-mixed - still no difference. G2 connects to router using link 40-50 mbit and the best download speed achived is ~2 MB/s other devices ~10 MB/s
...I have another N router - same problem there..

any other suggestions ?

You realize that its 150Mbps INTERNAL. Not external. Meaning. You get 150Mbps wifi transfer between internal devices..

Not out to the internet..

So you should test moving one file from your tablet to your phone, then see the speeds.. also turn on airplane mode to ensure you are using your wifi..

1) Yes I realize that. BUT the thing is that I have INTERNET download speed of ~15 MB/s AND other devices download with ~12 Mb/s

I've tested to download file from my local PC to LG phone using wireless storage and I barely get over 2 MB/s. I'm definitely using WiFi as I turned off data network.
Also, other phone tablet and PC shows Link connection speed 150 Mbps, only G2 is connecting to the routers on 39 Mbps or even lower.

very weird problem

Can you post the results after that? Please note "link Speed" when you connect to the router (as the screenshot on first post)

Maybe remove icon from battery saving in wifi will help.
Long press on wifi in notification center then menu button then advanced then untick this option and turn off wifi and on.
