Hello friends! I am currently on a gigabit speed plan (1000mbps up/40mbps down) with my internet provider (Cox Communication) and I am using the Netgear XR500 Nighthawk router with an Arris Surfboard sb8200 modem, capable of up to 2gig down. From the router, hard lined with a cat 6 ethernet cable I am of course pulling the advertised speed of around 980mbps down. However on my PC, via Wi-Fi about 60 feet away from the router I am pulling around 550-600mbps. I purchased a Netgear Nighthawk Extender (EX-8000) which I am hard lined into my PC with the same cat 6 ethernet cable, again about 60 feet away from router, and the speeds are the same as without the extender via Wi-Fi. Around 550-600mbps down. I have turned off QoS and the issues persist. I live in an 1800sqft 2 bedroom apartment. My internet provider sent their tech who came and laid all new coax cable and splitter in the line and we both confirmed the advertised speed is being pulled on their end in the apartment. There is no obstructions with the exception of 1 plaster wall and the extender next to the door which is open. And yes all the router antenna are facing upward. Can someone run through settings and channels to make sure I have everything set up correctly?
I've been running speed tests multiple times after upgrading my internet download/upload speeds from 150 Mbps/5Mbps to 1000Mbps/35Mbps speeds and have seen that the speeds are capping at around 280 Mbps for the download speeds. My upload speeds match up to and sometimes surpasses what the ISP provides. I want to know if this is a limitation on the router or any of my other hardware. Any help would be appreciated.
