Netgear R8500 WAN Bandwidth Issue

Hi All, I have an R8500 router running V1.0.2.130 and my ISP provides 300/12Mb. I get that speed when my PC is connected directly to the modem, but when going through the router (wired using exact same cable) I got around 80/10 Mbps as max...

 

I've tried already to reset the router to Factory as I saw in another thread that that may sokve the issue but it doesn't make a difference in my case.

 

Please let me know if there is any way to solve this or should I need to get a new router?

Re: Netgear R8500 WAN Bandwidth Issue

Have you tried a new cable? 

What modem is it connected to?

Thanks for your fast reply, I've already tried with a new cable and same issue.

 

The modem is  a technicolor cga4233tch3.

Looks like that modem is a modem/router combo device. Are you in a double nat?

Yes you're right it is a router/modem combo device, however I set the technicolor device to bridge mode only. So double-NAT scenario should not be the case.

Re: Netgear R8500 WAN Bandwidth Issue

it wouldn't be the first device to not function properly in bridge mode. 

have you  tried it with the technicolor in router mode and the netgear in access point mode?

No, i didn't try that you're right. I could try that scenario and see if that solves my problem.
