R8500 and FIOS
I've seen other threads on this, but i wanted to make sure this was current information.
I just upgraded to Verizon FIOS Gigabyte service. When plugged in, I am reaching well over 800MB/sec download & upload. On wireless, I am only getting around 150MB/sec download & upload.
I have a newer ONT device, which is ethernet only. I do NOT have the Quantum Gateway router. Several Verizon employees, as well as the tech who installed it, said this should not be a problem.
So I guess the question is: Will the Nighthawk X8 R8500 AC5300 router be capbable of gigabyte speeds on wireless? If so, what settings might I change? I have QoS and Traffic disabled. I am connected via dual 5GHz band. I have tried different channels. I am using the newest firmware I can find.
Re: R8500 and FIOS
Have you determined that the router is the bottleneck, rather than
the wireless-connected device?

An actual version number would be more useful than your assessment of
what might be available at any given time.
