Broadband equipment overload?

I have my hub in modem mode and using a Asus RT AC88U router with 4 BT Whole home discs hardwired with TP link plugs, so I have two networks!  have M600 fibre broadband and get 242 Mpbs on the ASUs network and 218Mpbs on the disc network. Please advise if I am reducing my latency by using so much equipment? Thanks in advance.

What do you get when wired directly via ethernet into the ASUS?

that would suggest only a CAT5 cable (rather than CAT5e /CAT6) or only a 10/100mb NIC.

Check what the link speed is (either on the asus, or on the device itself)
