R7000 extremely slow with every firmware after V1.0.9.42_10.2.44


R7000 extremely slow with every firmware after V1.0.9.42_10.2.44



This is starting to become absurd.

I have the R7000 router and i have extremely low speed (as in throughput) on every firmware after V1.0.9.42_10.2.44.


I have 1000Mbps up and 1000Mbps down from my isp, which is verifyed with speedtest when connecting a computer straight to the socket with a cable.


When i connect the computers to the R700 (cable) and with a firmware of V1.0.9.42_10.2.44 (or lower) i get just above 950/950, even with mac filtering on.


Here comes the problem. As soon as i update to a newer firmwate my speed goes down to around 200/200.


What i have tested (many multiple times):

Disable/enable/disable qos.

Reset to factory settings.

Changed cables.

Turn off mac filtering.

Disable any feature that has anything to do with traffic shapening.

Enabled/disabled wifi (even though the issue is present when connecting through cable)


Still the same. V1.0.9.42_10.2.44 Works fine but nothing after that.

Why just dont stay at V1.0.9.42_10.2.44 and be happy you might ask?

Because i would like the new security updates and i feel like a company has to be able to handle these situations!


There seems to be no way of contacting the devs to get this sorted either. This is appaling! I mean we have the proof that it can hadle at least 950 with V1.0.9.42_10.2.44 but not with newer so there doesnt seem to be a hardware fault.


Does anyone know how to get in contact with netgear about this?

Even better if you have a magical fix for this issue. Unfortunately i dont seem to be alone on net net regarding slow speeds on the R7000.
