Question Slow wired connection

Hello there,

I got a question here that someone might know. I have a TP Link Archer C4000 router connected to my Netgear CM1000 modem. My desktop is the only thing plugged into the router, all other devices are on WIFI. I have Gigabit service at my house. My speeds are anywhere from 250 up to 400 (on a good day). If I plug my desktop directly into the modem, I am getting download speeds of around 850-950. I currently have no devices connected to WIFI. Does anyone know of any settings I can tweek to boost my wired speeds through the router?

Start with a factory reset of the router. Then set just SSID, admin password, and WIFI password. See what that does.

I just disabled it and did a few tests. I was getting between 100-150, so much slower. When I enabled again, it was pulling 350
Yeah, generally "normal" is best.
I don't have that router, so I can't help too much more.
Have you tried disabling the QOS in the router? With gigabit WAN, QOS just slows things down.
Verify that you have the newest firmware ?
