most tv's are only 10/100mbps connections.

have you tried the speedtest with a computer thats gigabit rated?

Current setup: CM2000-> RBKE963B-> Trendnet TEG-S380-> GS716T-> pi-hole
also in AP setup: RAXE500->EAX80

Yes, Netgear said they could make 1 off 4 Ethernet provide higher download to a computer but advertise 30 devises overall. They had us change 1500 setting to 1492 and no help. Worst tech support ever. Need Apple to enter market of routers. How can Ethernet plugs not provide same down load speed as tri band wireless 5G or 2G???

The router supports up to 32 devices per wireless band. wired you can have  even more. They had us change 1500 setting to 1492 and no help.--that'd be changing mtu. Worst tech support ever. Need Apple to enter market of routers. How can Ethernet plugs not provide same down load speed as tri band wireless 5G or 2G???----It can. but you haven't provided much useful info or answers to the questions asked.
