XB6 in bridge mode - only getting about 300mb/s down, 10 up

Just recieved my xb6 for my recently upgaraded gig plan.

I used it in bridge mode ( i have a Netgear R8500 router attached)

I noticed that via wifi, i am only getting 300 down and 10 up.

When i disabled bridge mode and connected directly to the 

XB6 wifi, got about 600 and 40.

I know there is a bug with the xb6 in bridge mode.

But is there a fix?

3rd party routers can slow your internet speed because they aren't optimized to work with Comcast modems like the built in router is in the XB6.

That's not true. It is a known firmware glitch issue with the XB6's when they are placed in to bridge mode.
