Model: Archer C6
Hardware Version: V2
Firmware Version: 1.1.5 Build 20191112 rel.36515(5553)

I just bought an Archer C6 model, and the LAN PORTS should be 1000Mbps, but for some reason it is limiting to 100Mbps.(image below) What i have to do change that? Also, what channel Width should i select for the 2.4 Ghz and 5Ghz band?And should i enable MU-MIMU?

Port negotiation depends on the adapters on both ends and the cable.  Make sure your PC has a gigabit ethernet card and the cable is at least a Cat 5e.  For the bandwidth for 2.4 it depends on the usage.  If you have a lot of devices that are further away from the router use 20 MHz,  more devices closer use 40 MHz.  MU-MIMO is a feature we recommend being enabled.

@Carl I'm trying to connect to a XBOX ONE i assume the console is compatible, because i've seem people with 100+ connection on the xbox one.What about the channel width for the 5Ghz band? Should i just let the auto option on both the 2.4 and 5?

The Channel width on the 5GHz follows the same priciple the further away from the router the lower the width the closer devices will be the bigger the width.  A good way to think about it is a sprayer on a water hose.  The Mist Setting will gett a greater area wet but has far less range that say the stream setting.  The stream setting however is the exact opposite.  Longer distance but less coverage.  

 

As for the Xbox i do believe its Ethernet port is a gigabit port so it likely comes down to the ethernet cable.  printed on the cable will be either the category (Cat 5, Cat 5e, Cat 6, ect.) or the speed rating 10/100, 10/100/1000.  You need a cat 5e or higher or a rating of 10/100/1000 to get speeds above 100 Mbps.  This is not only true btween the router and the client device like your laptop or xbox but also between the Router and the modem. All devices and cables need to be capable of gigabit speeds to get above 100 Mbps

I have the same problem. I use ZTE 1000mbps + 2x Archer C6 connected to each other (negociated connection at 100 mbps ) and at the end a pc that gets 90 mbps.  Not long ago i had the same problem that i solved by reseting one of the routers. I had 800+ mbps and now again limits to 90 mbps. Please provide a solution. Thanks!

@Carl Please provide a solution for the same issue.

i have bought 2x Archer C6 .

They are failing at negociation 1000mbps 

it shows clearly that enters 1000mbps and the lan fails to negociate and stays at 100mbps.

It worked before. I had speeds over 800mbps on the same infrastructure .

What can i do ??

Go to the router's UI.  Click on Advanced > System Tools > System parameters.  Go to Duplex and see what it is set to.  Make sure its either 1000Mbps Full duplex or Auto Negotiation.  also make sure all ethernet cables Modem to router and Router to client are all Cat5e or higher.

@Carl I Cant fnd the System parameters in my archer c20. At times i get a 100Mbps full duplex and at times half. I think there is a negotitation issue between my modem and this router connected through ethernet.

Usually this is only available on routers with gigabit ports.  The Archer C20 has 10/100 ports so the setting is not available on it.  For this concern i would agree.  I'd replace the ethernet cable but also check with your ISP and test the modem.

I have exactly same problem with the Archer C6. I have ATT Uverse at 1 Gbps and all my devices operate at 800+Mbps except for the Archer C6. My speedtest with the wired access shows 800-900 Mbps. When I hookup the Archer C6 it shows associated link speed at 700 Mbps. When I connect my Dell 5500 or my iphone 11 to the wireless network by the Archer C6 I got <100 Mbps. Please help.
