R7800 5Ghz Poor Performance

I upgraded my new R7800 from factory Netgear code to dd-wrt. Prior to the upgrade I tested wifi performance in the 700-800Mbps throughput range. Since upgrading to dd-wrt, the best performance I am able to get is in the 300-400Mbps range. If tried just about ever combination of setting but unable to get better performance. Any sample configuration would be appreciated.

AFAIK, factory firmware uses

AFAIK, factory firmware uses hw acceleration, dd-wrt not. Check Voxel firmware, it's based on stock with some additional features.

I have even worse numbers, 5G with 80Mhz on DD-WRT v3.0-r32802M kongat (07/24/17) - no more than 160 mbit, while stock f/w had 200 (my connection speed is 200)

Review DDWRTs site for going

Review DDWRTs site for going back to OEM FW. 

Give Voxel's FW a try. Runs nicely. Uses same UI.

Weird question but does Voxels firmware allow you to run commands like DD-WRT
