R6900p Slow wired Internet on Gigabit ISP

I just replace my old router with a new R6900p to handle the ISP gigabit connection. However I can only get up to around 150mbps speed with the router. When I bypass the router, my internet speed makes a HUGE increase. The problem is definately with the router. I upgraded to the newest firmware, V1.3.2.126_10.1.66 and it didn't make a difference. I also have dynamic QOS disabled. How can I fix this?

And I thought I was crazy. I’m having the exact same issue. Though I’m using the RBR50 router.

You're not crazy, but this is driving me crazy. I may just go back to the D-Link.

With my experience with firmware issues on a r8000 and r8000p going back to other product is probably the right move.

Is there an older verson of the firmware that has worked the best? Perhaps I should use that version?

What;s Netgear's take on this? I hope they're not just going to abandon us and fix it?

I downgraded the firmware to version V1.3.0.20_10.1.1. It did help a bit with the speed. However it only went up from 200 MBPS to to 330MBPS. More work needs to be done.
