Netgear Nighthawk X6 R8000 questions
I have a Netgear Nighthawk X6 R8000.

Im having major speed issues with stock firmware, on my Intel & Realtek LAN card im lucky to achive an Internet speed of 240mb.

The firmware is upto date and all LAN drivers are to.

Anyone have any ideas?

I stopped updating this router some time ago as one particular update seem to hit the speeds on it.

After a long time I updated today to the latest version to trial it.

Currently I'm getting 660mbps using the speedtest on the pc connected by Ethernet to the router - although the router itself only repeats 200-300mbps.

How are you doing the speedtest?

I have this router, and I use stock firmware.

I get my download speed 99% of the time, even over Wi-Fi.

Don't forget the PCs, Tablets and Phones might not be able to get the speed you pay for.

I used a wired connection on my Samsung NC-10 Netbook I'm lucky to get 90meg
