How is it possible for the WRT3200ACM to be so slow?

Today, I exchanged the WRT3200ACM for another one because the first one was defective (Linksys declared it defective). I still have the same problems. 250 Mbps download on a gigabit of speed. Yes, I tried all the different settings. The WiFi speed was only like 60 Mbps. Nothing improved the speed. I tested the stock firmware and newest. Same problems. Although at first the newest firmware hit gigabit, slow speeds continue.

I checked the modem to computer over Ethernet. Blazing fast gigabit. So it has to be the router? I’m so confused as to how a router with so much power can be so slow? It seems stuck.

My wifi speeds seem capped at approx 60Mbps on the WRT32X, too. 

 

Then I tested a Netgear router and my wifi speeds are at near full speed.

I test some quick throughput testing. Please see results in the below post:
