Netgear Nighthawk X6 R8000

Attention all Gigabit subscribers!!!! I have a Nighthawk X6 R8000 router and DON’T BUY THIS ROUTER!!! So I hooked up my crappy Linksys EA9400 Router and I GOT great download speeds around 700 - 900 MBPS. When I hooked up this crappy X6 R8000 router I got no more than 350 MBPS speed. This router ACTUALLY slowed my speeds down by a big margin WTF!!! The only reason I didn’t stick with the Crappy Linksys EA9400 router is because the 2.4 GHZ connection kept dropping and losing connection and I couldn’t TAKE IT anymore so I had to resort back to this other crappy X6 R8000 router. I’m going to try to take this back to Best Buy and see if I can get an ASUS router or something else because this X6 R8000 is CRAPPY and is NOT WORTH THE MONEY!!!!! So please, please, please do NOT get the X6 R8000 because it WILL SLOW your gigabit speeds down severely! Actually, the LINKSYS EA9400 maximized my gigabit speeds but it just kept dropping my 2.4GHZ connections and I couldn’t handle it anymore!!!

Have you tried to disable QOS if it was enabled?
