Why is my Ethernet Speed limited to 100mbps?

So I was checking my HUB settings and noitced both my Ethernet connections are only on 100mbps which I though was weird, I am using CAT8 cables and I am on a 350 speed package. Is there a reason why its not going over 100mbps? Some of my Wi-Fi connections are way over 100.

Hi DanielWM96,

 

Thanks for your post on the forums. 

 

This isn't an issue I've come across before - can you please try a factory reset of the router if you haven't already, and test the speeds again? 

 

Let me know how that goes.

 

Beth

Some laptops have NICs or Ethernet ports limited to 100Mbps.

Or you’re only using a CAT5 cable and not CAT5e or CAT6

Looking at the image one of them is a LG TV which could more than likely be a 100mb NIC.

 

What is the make and model of the other device?
