AC1750 R6700v3 WiFi 60% Faster than Ethernet - HELP



I have the Nighthawk AC1750 (R6700v3) and my main issue is that the WiFi is significantly faster than the Ethernet. I've searched high and low and can't find the solution for my specific problem. With WiFi (on my gigabyte plan), i get around 230mbps download and with ethernet i get sub 150mbps.. I have reset the router, reset my modem, factory reset the router, and tried troubleshooting with windows but i can't find the reasoning behind this.


Extra Info:

I have an Ethernet cable connected directly from my modem to my router. There is NOT a length issue or any issues with my ethernet cable or my computers firmware. I have tested plugging in my ethernet directly into my PC from the modem and i get 950mbps download speed. The direct issue is the Nighthawk AC1750 R6700v3. I hope someone can offer some help as i am minutes from tossing this thing out the window. And yes, i am connected into the correct ports with my ethernet.

What firmware are you on?

What modem do you have connected? 

Tried enabling/disabling ipv6?
