Orbi speed issue

My setup now has the RBR750 router, directly off my Comcast modem. I have 3 satellites throughout the house, one of which is hardwired via CAT-5 to the main router. Off the satellite, I have a Cat-5 to a switch, and my AppleTV, smart TV, and PS4, all hardliners. When everything is fresh off a restart, I get the full speed(approx 800mbs) at the hardwired satellite. After a few days, that drops down to maybe 100mbs, on a good day. Why does it go full blast at first, then start dropping off?

Re: Orbi speed issue

What Firmware version is currently loaded?
What is the Mfr and model# of the Internet Service Providers modem/ONT the NG router is connected too?


What is the size of your home? Sq Ft?
What is the distance between the router and 📡 satellite(s)? 30 feet or more is recommended in between RBR and RBS📡 to begin with depending upon building materials when wirelessly connected.

Is the one RBS directly connected via ethernet to the back of the RBR or is there a LAN switch or wall outlet in between? 

For ethernet cabling CAT 6 is recommended. CAT5 only supports 100Mpbs and would be limiting on wired performances.
