Nighthawk R8000/AC3200 wired connection is half the speed than connecting directly to CM1000 modem?

Like the title says, direct connection to the netgear CM1000 modem on my win10 machine, I get ~940Mbps but when I connect through the router, I get ~470Mbps.

 

I have seen a few threads about this and tried to check them out with no luck:

  • checked the cables direct to modem and through router and both work fine.
  • someone mentioned MAC cloning and I am not sure what this is but I have not messed with my MAC address at all. Xfinity has my modem MAC address registered so I was assuming it shouldn't be a problem. 
  • Someone else mentioned accidentally ticking off a traffic meter but mine is off. 
  • I have the latest firmware. 

Looking for other suggestions to try out.

Thanks

Turn off QoS.

 

There is a manual for your device somewhere at the end of this link:

See page 42.
