R9000 - Bottlenecked upload on MBP18
R9000 with Gigabit internet, pulls 950mbps from the wall.
MacBook Pro 2018 connects to 5g and pulls 250mbps/10mbps
MacBook Pro 2016 right next to it on the same 5g pulls 500mbps/35mbps
iPhone XS next to both of those laptops on 5g pulls 500mbps/10mbps
I've tried flashing firmwares. Multiple factory resets. Debug.html.
This router seems to have an issue with the gigabit speed. Has anyone else fixed anything like this?

wireless isn't going to hit gigabit speeds.
most wireless devices are either a 1x1 or 2x2 anteanna solution. Meaning their link speed roughly 433mbps or 866mbps.
there's also a difference between link speed and throughput speed (actual speed). Its roughly a 55-65% difference between the 2.
Hitting 500mbps over wireless is doing pretty good.
Take a read through of a tested review of it for a comparison.
