Nighthawk AX6 AX5400 and existing bulk cat6a not working

Just upgraded from Nighthawk R7000 where existing bulk cat6a cable in the home works. The new Nighthawk AX6 AX5400 is not working with this existing cat6a cable. I tried some retail cat6a cable with the AX6 and it was successful. Thoughts on how to diagnose?

You kind of already did the diagnosis. 

You found one set of cable run didn't work but replacing it with a new/premade did work. 

Kind of points at the cable. You can try replacing the ends on the cable to see if there's a bad pair or miswiring going on.
