N600 wifi extender running at 100mbps instead of 600mbps

I purchased a n600 wifi range extender from best buy. I installed the device making sure to put it in an area with already good wifi reach. When I used an ethernet cord to get internet from the range extender to my desktop pc it showed speeds of 100mbps instead of the advertised 600mbps. I would like to know if there is something I missed while installing the device which would remidy the problem.

Hello Pbegly

 

You may want to try fastlane mode which if you log into the extender then Advanced then Operating mode.
