lower speed gig1 speed when used in modem mode with asus gt-ac5300

So I just installed my Asus gt-ac5300 and noticed much slower speeds

prior to using this router, i was getting 950Mb download speed 

now I'm lucky if I get over 550mb down 

anyone help me narrow down the issue? 

cable is currently cat 6 and will be upgraded to cat 7 tomorrow 

any ideas??

Does your router have any QOS enabled, try disabling things like that

SNB reviews suggests this router only has a WAN throughput of approx. 700mb?  So any QOS or NAT acceleration might have a big performance hit.

Cat 6 cable is fine, it's rated to 1GB.
