So I've got the aforementioned router, and I've seen it get ~200mbps over the wifi on this exact same setup, but after doing a factory reset and installing Merlin onto it, I can't get wifi above 100mbps, like it's limited somehow. Clearing NVRAM manually over telnet hasn't fixed the issue, neither has going back to the original ASUS firmware. I've got no idea what the problem could be and I'd really appreciate some help. Let me know if there's any more information that's needed, I'll happily provide it.

Edit: I should add that when plugging my laptop directly into the cable modem I get full speed of ~200mbps down, but through my router every device, wired and wireless, caps out at 100mbps over 5g/wired and 50mbps over 2.4g.
