200 mbps over wifi only 100mbps on gigabit ethernet

hello, 

has anyone found the cause of this issue as I am currently experiencing it? on my desktop i have gigabit LAN port, cat 6 cable only getting max 110 Mbps, on the laptop with 866mpbs ac adapter getting 220 Mbps?

I was getting 160 Mbps previously through the same LAN port and same cables.

I have tried adding a dedicated PCIe Gigabit LAN port and 3 different cat 6 cables to no avail.

virgin media engineer called out and had no solution other than replacing router which did not fix the problem... the reason I pay for the 200mbps connection is for my computer not for any other device.

Well its just odd you get max by wireless and not by wire and tried different cat 6 cables and added a dedicated PCIe Gigabit NIC.

So you have a PC and a laptop? Does your laptop have a 1Gb NIC to test.

maybe try a driver update

no, unfortunately, the laptop doesn't have a LAN port... might have to borrow a pc if I don't get a resolution

Can you confirm the speed your network adapter is set / negotiating to?

In Windows this is found under Control Panel --> Network and Internet --> Network Connections. Alternatively search for network connections in the start menu.

Once you've found your adapter, double click on it. Speed should be 1.0Gbps.

Not seeing an image of anything other than a triangle, if that's supposed to be a screenshot.

What Router are you using?  On the wired (Gigabit) device what OS are you using?

Is the device that connects at gigabit the ONLY device connected via wired ports?

Can you also confirm the device is connected directly (No Switches!).

If any other devices are connected then disconnect them, restart the router, test again.  

Did you try one of the other ports on the router?

Some AV/Firewall Software can also cause issues such as slower than normal throughput.

I do not work for VM, but I would. It is just a Job.

I would also make websites for them, because the job never seems to require the website to work.
