What's the make and model number of the cable modem and what speed do you get with a computer connected directly to it (no router) ?

Not sure about the R8000, but I had no issues with the R7000P (an earlier version). It was connected on one end to a Netgear GS208 gigabit switch, also no issues there. 

 

If you have QoS, security software, or any bandwidth monitoring tools such as speedtests running in the router, you can turn those off.
