OrbiRbr40 wired speed 400mbps wifi speed 90 mbps

I have rbr40 orbi. Firmware 2.7.3.22.
When I connect lan cable to modem the speed is 400+ mbps. When I check speed in orbi app the max speed it takes is only around 90mbs.
What could be the problem ?
The devices are automatically spread between 2.4 and 5 GHz.
Please help.
Thanks

90mbs is a suspicious number because it is 'nearly' 100.  Can you open the Orbi web interface (http://orbilogin.net), log in ("admin" and password), click on the Advanced Tab, then click on the blue "Show Stastics" box.

What does it show for the WAN port? If it shows 100/Full, then the Orbi believes that the modem connection is a 100mb connection rather than a gigabit connection.  That is often because of a fulty ethernet patch cable or a bent pin on the etherent jack.
