XB7-T, Bridge mode & minus Gig speeds

So i wanted to come to the official forums and ask if this is a persistent problem or can be fixed with Support.

 

After being a long time owner of my own gateway to avoid leasing I have the above mentioned gateway in bridgemode to take advantage of the Gig speeds and unlimited data caps since we are in pandemic era.

 

My router is a Netgear Nighthawk R7000. I seem to be capped at 400+ speeds while in bridge mode vs when in normal gateway, pushing 800+ speeds.

 

Is there a setting i should be looking for, or is this a known and must be accepted limitation of using the the xfi equipment in bridge mode?

I'd really appreciate some eyes and input on this ...

As we near the end of the year, I wonder if progress has been made to rectify this for affected users..

I'd prefer to use in gateway made so that I may customize dns settings and utilize the opendns services I'd been using for quite sometime to better manage parental controls
