Ethernet capped at 100mbps

I use a cat7 Ethernet and a tp link gigabit adapter but my speed is still capped to 100mbps despite getting 300+ on phone with Wi-fi. I have changed the speed and duplex to 1gb and it still didn’t work. Please help

Maybe you have a bad cable.

Try a different cable and a different USB port for the adaptor

Re: Ethernet capped at 100mbps

Does look like a classic faulty cable problem -  or its only a cat5 one not 5e or 6/7

Re: Ethernet capped at 100mbps

As mentioned it could be a faulty cable.

So you have one end of your cat7 connected to the USB to Ethernet adapter - what is the other end connected to?
Have you tried other ports?
