New firmware 2.1.1.16 for Orbi RBR50 - slower upload speeds

Dowloaded the new firmware last night (2.1.1.16) going from 2.0.0.74.  Had some issue with devices showing connected to right places (Router / Sattelites) - but that seems ok now.  However, I have noticed that my wifi upload speeds are slower.  My service is 400 Mbps down/40 Mbps up.  With the prior firmware I would regularly get pretty close to those speeds.  Now, with the new firmware I'm getting close to 400 Mbps down, but only 7 - 15 Mbps upload.  Wondering if it has something to do with the backhaul???  I have daisy chain, Beam forming, and MIMO all enabled.

Is the upload only slow over the wifi have you tested a device connected via ethernet?

Issue seems to be resolved now. Maybe it was a service provider or traffic issue. Thanks.
