    I recently ran a cat 6 cable out to my detached garage and installed a second WRT1200AC wireless router. I have the main router connected to a standard port, not the internet port, turned off DHCP, and everything works, it’s just way slower than the main router. Is this normal for the speed to be slower on the second router, or am I missing something?

    While I might expect some small difference, I wouldn't expect anything quite that dramatic.

    Perhaps a bad cable?

    I would try placing the two routers much closer together using a very short ethernet cable and seeing if you get better results. IOW, start small, make sure things work as expected, and only then extend its reach.
