Hello. I have an ASUS Z97-A motherboard which has up to 1gb/s and i have a 200mb pack
The problem is that i have only 100 mb on my local area connection. Can't get any higher. Drivers are up to date, network cable is cat6e and the router is hub 3.0. What is there to do to reach 200mb? I don't think my motherboard is faulty because i had a weaker one in my country and i was reaching 500mb. Should i buy a PCI network card? Is ViMe 200mb/s internet speed restricted to any PCI newtwork card brand? I'm thinking that maybe it has something to do with the cable from outside the house? Maybe the hub from which is getting the signal is restricted to 100mb Ps : I live in area 30 Lincoln I don't want to pay for something that i cannot reach. Thanks
Thanks for posting and a warm welcome to the community.
I'm sorry to read that you are not achieving the up to 200 Mbps broadband speeds.
I appreciate the checks you have completed so far, however the speeds are still the same. On the PC/laptop that you mentioned, have you checked the duplex settings within the LAN options to see if there is a selection to change from 100 Mbps to 1 GB or was the device built with a 100 Mbps card? If you try a speed test on another device do the speeds differ at all?
Yes, it has up to 1gb/s full duplex but when i select it, it won't connect to internet anymore
Also, i have bought a gigabit IE card and it's still the same. I have no other device to test it on but i trust that what i have now, is powerful enough to handle great speeds. I still think that it's a problem with the provider and not with my hardware. Thanks.
If the link light on the PC is showing as amber this can mean that it is syncing at a speed of 100 Mbps whilst a green light would suggest 1 GB. Looking at the devices connected to the Hub 3.0 it is showing a PC linked at 100 Mbps.
The router is currently locked onto 200 Mbps which is correct. I can see that you mentioned that the PC LAN card is linked at 100 Mbps is this still the same? Are you able to complete speed tests whilst the Hub 3.0 is in modem mode and the PC in Safe Mode with Networking please? This will eliminate other devices connected and any software issues on the device.
I've put the hub into modem mode. I also booted in safe mode with network but i can't reach over 94mb/s in speed test. Color is still orange
Curious enough, when it's in modem mode, PCI gigabit card doesn't seem to work. The one on the motherboard works fine. Also i have to mention that if i select 1gb full duplex on motherboard lan, it won't connect. I think i will downgrade my subscription to 100mb. Guess that 200mb is not for me Thank you for all your help
