Slow wired speed on gigabit service with Netgear router.
I just upgraded my broadband service on Comcast to their Gigabit speed service. I first replaced my Netgear CM500 modem because Comcast said it wasn’t capable of the faster speed. I purchased an Arris Surfboard SB8200 DOCSIS 3.1. Comcast wanted me to use their all in one XB6-T modem/router/voice unit. I don’t like using Comcast equipment if I don’t have to. Anyway, when I connect my Arris modem directly to my desktop, I get great speeds of around 925 Mbps. When I connect my modem to my Netgear R7000 router and Ethernet from the router to the desktop, the desktop speeds drop all the way down to around 292 Mbps. It appears something is not right with the Netgear router or I won't be able to get gigabit speeds without using the XB6-T. Does Comcast has it setup so you can't get gigabit speeds using a 3rd party router? Thanks
