RAX80 too slow

Too slow via Ethernet
Got Spectrum 400Mbps (new modem).
Max speed via Ethernet 80Mbps.
If I plug PC directly to modern I get 480.
Also, I cannot use the Rax80 MAC address, I have to use my PC on the rax80 settings.
I have disconnected EVERYTHING except my PC, still at 80.
Any ideas?
Thanks!

It if works, don't fix and if you fix it, plug it in and see what color smoke you get!

Re: RAX80 too slow

Problem solved. It was the QOS setting. Turned it off, full speed! Plus, reboot w/o the router, then connected the router and it allowed the router MAC address!

Thank you all!

But, what's interesting, it's not showing up under my posts, yet, Netgear community sent me a badge update. Cool!

Re: RAX80 too slow

Glad you got it working. Please mark your thread as solved so others will know. Be sure to save off a back up configuration to file for safe keeping. Saves time if a reset is needed.
