R8000 Slow Test Speeds

I've seen suggestions on here about MTU speeds, mine is at 1500.  I've seent post on here about Cat 7 cables.  Got those.

No matter what I do, I can hook directly to my modem and get 420mbs DL.  I connect to my R8000 router and all i get is 200mbs DL.

 

Any suggestions on the problem.?  Any suggestions on the replacement router/WiFi device that cover s large area in my home?

Re: R8000 Slow Test Speeds

are you testing wired or wireless? 

Make sure to disable qos, access control, traffic monitoring, and parental controls. Then reboot the router and test it wired. 

What firmware are you on? 

what modem/gateway are you connected to? 

Current Setup: CM2000-> RBK750-> GS716v2-> RAXE500-> Pi-hole->

I'm testing hardwired, only connection.  I'm on the latest firmware.  I'm using the Spectrum E31N2V1

try factory resetting. During the install just setup the minimum sevices  to get it working, then speedtest it. What do you get?
