I've been trying Rogers gigabit for months with speeds nowhere close to it. They need to stop scamming people. Time to "upgrade" back to their 250mbps which was working faster than this bullshit gigabit plan.
Are you connected using Rogers Modem?

WiFi or Ethernet?

Or are you bridged?

Why am I experiencing a cutback in speed with an R7000 placed after the Modem in Bridge mode?

Rogers to Roger Modem to R7000 to Main Rig all straight runs of Cat5E ethernet

What firmware are you running? Do you have hardware NAT enabled?

did you try taking the R7000 out of the mix and testing the speed straight from the Rogers modem (put it back to router mode).

I had issues before with only getting around 425 Mbps download speed. Then I updated the firmware on the R7000 and all of a sudden I'm getting something closer to the 1 Gbps mark. Try updating the firmware or just do a factory reset if you're already on the latest. Don't try to restore an old firmware settings when setting up the router after the restore/update.

Hopefully some of you can share some experience on this... running Tomato-ARM on Linksys EA6900 already CTF enabled.
I can't get anything over 500mbps un my Gigabit plan. Modem has already been turned into bridge mode.

I am on .28T2 and don't have any issues with my internet. Most likely your beta firmware.
Yup. checked rogers community under coda 4582 fw program. Known issue. Peeps are having issues with modem rebooting randomly since fw .33. Used to occur several times daily, now it's once a day.

R7000 is updated.

Straight ethernet from Rogers Modem in bridge mode to main rig, I get faster speeds.

As soon as I place the router after it, speed drops.

Used to be on 28T2 and getting constant reboots. Got the upgrade to 33T3 which should fix the 33T2 reboot issue. I have been contemplating on going back to the older style modem but will wait if the new fw will fix my issues. Fingers crossed..

Yeah, it was getting so crazy that I kept getting reboots on 28T2 everynight just before midnight. I got 33T3 around noon yesterday and going good so far.

too many variables in a house, best to use your own/upgrade existing router

For speedtesting, use wired gigabit with cat6 cable to avoid so many variables ....
