Nighthawk R8000 100mb/sec cap

All cables are Cat6 (modem > router) and (router > PC)

Direct PC to Cable Modem gets 300mb/sec on speed test (which is the speed i have from cable provider)

Ethernet Status in device Manager shows 1.0 Gbps connection

 

I have QoS Disabled in router

 

So from the testing I have done I have the full speed i pay for from my cable provider when i connect my PC directly to the modem. This would logically exclude cables, modem, and ethernet adap[ter, PC from the list of possibly faulty equipment.

 

The problem is that over a wired connection from my PC to the nighthawk R8000 the maximum speed I can get is 102mb/sec avg.

 

Anyone have any ideas before i RMA this router?

Did you ever figure this out or RMA the unit?
