Hub 3 Ethernet speed is 100Mb/s but on WiFi I get 200 Mb/s

I have a 200Mb/s BB connection. I am getting 200Mb/s download speed in speed test while using WiFi. But when I connect my Laptop direct to an Ethernet cable then I only get 100 Mb/s. How to improve the Ethernet connection speed.

That'll be because the cable or laptop only supports a 100 Mbps ethernet connection.  Check the laptop has gigabit capable network adaptor, and if it does then it's most likely the cable - if you need to buy one, buy Cat 6a or higher.  If the network adaptor is only 10/100 capable, then you live with that or buy a new laptop.
