Im losing 200 mbps from a mesh router URGENT HELP

I have a new 4.0 hub which was given to me by virgin a few days ago, I have done several test and am receiving 500mbps wifi when i have on device connected to the internet and i pay for 600 which is fine. But when I then set the VM router to modem mode and set up my tenda nova mesh router i then run a test again with one device set up I'm getting around 324 why do i lose around 200mbps when doing this?

Not sure why this is URGENT? Tendas are usually a budget brand so Im not surprised its loosing a fair amount of WiFi speed.

 

A mesh network that supports 500mb+ is going to be pricey

Do you have reason of why it would be losing 200mbps at all? If so do you recommend of what mesh router would be appropriate replacement with £400 budget. Appreciate your response in advance

Look at Triband models - like TP-Link Deco M9's, Linksys Velop's and Netgear Orbi's

Crummy antennas and cheap hardware.

Look at a decent tri-band system.

For £400 you can get a wifi 6 mesh system.

 

Here is an example of one

Others might have some recommendations so see what other options there are
