nighthawk ac2300 slow download speed vs. upload

Hi everyone,

4 days ago, we switched internet providers to a fiber network with very high consumer ratings.  We previously had comcast 1G plan.  We purchased a 1G plan with the new provider.  We bought the nighthawk ac2300 wifi dual band gigabit router and we have not been happy with it.  We are lucky if the wifi download speed is greater than 100.  The upload speed hovers around 300.  The wifi download speed with the comcast router was much higher, which surprised me.  Is there a way to get better download speeds?  Very disappointing especially since we're in the same room as the router.  Thanks!

1. what firmware is installed?

2. what modem is it connected to?

3. Did you enable qos/traffic monitoring/access control/parental controls? If so, try factory resetting and installing without those enabled. 

4. what website are you using for testing? not all of them can saturate gigabit. Try 

5. make sure you're testing over hardwired connection. wireless AC can't saturate gigabit.
