WNDR4500v2 slowing down internet

I can confirm that connected to the modem, I get 50Mbps down and 3Mbps up. When I connect to the WNDR4500v2 router, I get 25Mbps down and .5Mbps up.

What settings do I need to look at to get that fixed???

Thanks

Make sure the router is having the latest firmware. If now login to Netgear Genie and upgrade the firmware. After that soft reset the router. Moreover the Internet connection over the Wireless network will be slower to Wired connection as the wireless connection works on half duplex. Apart from that there will be data lost due to interference

After updating and resetting and still getting the same connection speed, try lowering down the MTU size.

How do I change the MTU size on my NETGEAR Wireless Router/DSL Gateway?
