Internet Speed Direct Connect to Modem v. Direct Connect to Orbi

I tested my internet speed directly wired to modem and got to 400Mbps.

 

Then I connected the modem to the RBR50 and connected the same computer via ethernet and did a speed test and got 100Mbps.

 

When I run the speed test on the orbi app it's consistently around 100Mbps.

 

Is there some kind of setting i need to toggle to get the same 400Mbps speed thru a direct connection to Orbi as I do when i directly connect to the modem.

Model: RBR50|Orbi AC3000 Tri-band WiFi Router
