PS5 Netgear Nighthawk R7000 Slow Download Speeds

Unable to get full capable download speeds to my PS5, capped around 200Mbps download.

 

Setup

  • 1Gbps Fiber service
  • Nighthawk R7000 Router
  • PS5 is hardwired straight to the router with Cat5e cables.
  • PS5 assigned static IP

 

Router Settings

  • Factory reset and updated to latest firmware
  • All extra functions have been turned off or disabled
    • QoS
    • Traffic Metering
    • Etc...
  • Port forwarding for PS5 static IP
    • 80,443,1935,3478-3480

 

I have tested multiple Cat5 cables.

If I unplug the cable from the PS5 and plug it into my laptop, I'm able to get download speeds over 900Mbps.

If I plug the PS5 straight to the modem, I get near max speeds.

 

There appears to be an issue within the R7000 that is preventing the PS5 from attaining anything over 200. I have researched as much as possible and this seems to be a common issue with the R7000 and PS5 but have not found anyone who has solved it.

What FW version are you using on the router? 

Does a ethernet connected PC and Ooklas installable speed test app result is seeing same speeds results? 

What is the Mfr and model# of the Internet Service Providers modem/ONT the NG router is connected too?
