R9000 very slow internet speed wired and wifi all of a sudden

I have a Nighthawk X10 R9000 and lately getting very slow internet.  Firmware V1.0.4.12.  I have seen other threads reporting the same but no solution yet.  If I connect my computer dorectly to my modem I get 326Mbps down and 22.4 up which is about right for my plan.  Wired directly to the router I get 16.5 down and 1.3 up.  And about the same on Wifi 2.4 and 5 Ghz.

 

How can I resolve this?  Firmware is up to datre and have tried power cyckling modem, router and switch.  Is there something wrong with my router hardware?  I have only hasd it a year and it says I have no warranty left.  Its upsetting it has failed in such a short time.

I think I may have found out why this is happening.  in the QoS set up it was set to automatically take a speed test but for some reason the test is failing.  I chose manual enter my limits and my speed went way up.  How do I get the automastic speed test working again?

Probably wait for new firmware. Netgear seems to have broken this feature on a number of routers.

 

Do you need QoS?

 

With 326Mbps internet QoS is more likely to slow you down than deliver any benefits.

Sorry thought I had said.  Yes it did.  Completely solved the problem.
