Ethernet Ports Hub 3

Good Day/Evening/Night

Seem to be having an issues with the Lan speed.

All Cat 5 Cables 1gb network and cards, have checked by plugging laptop directly...however only getting ethernet port speeds of between 50-60mps. Wifi is getting around 300mps. We are on the 600plan.

1. Are for ports limited (would be odd)?

2. A setting I'm missing

Looking forward to hearing from you.

Cheers in advance or not!!! 🙂

Re: Ethernet Ports Hub 3

Gigabit needs Cat5e or better to get gigabit speeds.  Cat 5 is limited to 10/100 mb.

Re: Ethernet Ports Hub 3

If they are Cat5 cables with all 4 pairs wired they should get higher than the speed you get. The Cat5 specification may say only 100M, but when written this only involved using 2 pairs of the four. Cat5 cables with a 4 pairs will, in most circumstances give you 1G ok. I have some long drops of AT&T high quality Cat5 cables that are years old and still give 1G all the time. Cat5e will certainly give you 1G, although I have seen many faulty Cat5e cables where one of the wires is broken/not connected correctly and they were working at 100M. There is a lot of difference between specification and real world use.

Re: Ethernet Ports Hub 3

First thing I would do is swap out any cables - remove that from the equation as a potential problem!

Hi Update

  • Bought new cables
  • Tried Mac
  • Tried PC
  • Tried Laptop
  • Tried ChromeBook

The ethernet ports are only getting speed readings between 60-70 max.

any other ideas, looks to me if they are capped or faulty

Re: Ethernet Ports Hub 3

Put hub in modem mode and do a speed test with cmd running ping -t 194.168.4.100
