Nighthawk AC3200 Slow wired download speeds

I've had this new router for about a month and still have this issue. On several internet speed tests I consistently get speeds of about 250 mb down, and about 450mb up. My ISP package is for 500mb speeds. Without the router, straight from wall to computer, I get almost 500mb both down and up. Here is what I have done so far;

 

I have made sure QoS is OFF

Traffic meter is Off

Double checked cables, all are CAT 6. 

Reset router, several times.

 

I've read numerous existing posts and have tried almost everything. I have not messed with packets or things like that. Anyone else experiencing the same problem?

Check if your router FW version is anything other than v1.0.3.54. If so, flash it to this version and that would most likely solve the problem. 

And then wait for solution from Netgear... may be a long wait...

I was getting 180-200 but my service is  250. I downgraded the FW version to v1.0.3.54 and I was back to the 250-300.

I reverted it back to 1.0.3.54 and it's still the same.

What tests are you talking about and why does it have to be done from an iPhone?

I’m not having issues with my wireless connection. I am referring to my wired connection.
