Gig 1 Wifi Slow over Ethernet

Hey everyone, I recently got Gig1 and had some problems with it and I decided to wire my gaming PC to the hub. I did that today and ran some results. I use a CAT 7 Ethernet Cable and I ran a SamKnows Speed Test. The results were: My Hub 4 receives 1099 Mbps but I am receiving 100-200Mbps, does anyone know why this is happening?

Re: Gig 1 Wifi Slow over Ethernet

if your hub is getting the full speed then i'd be looking at the computer.

Are network drivers up to date.
Does disabling AV and firewalls (just for testing) speed it up.
Can you test another system with a gigabit network card.
Whats your system resource like. CPU/RAM load
Do you get the same results with another speed test and another broswer

Re: Gig 1 Wifi Slow over Ethernet

Hey,
1. How could I check if my network drivers are up to date
2. I disabled my firewall and got the same speed
3. I do not have access to another Gigabit network card
4. My CPU utilisation is 3% and RAM is 35%
4. I ran speedtest.net app (so not from web browser but downloaded app) and got 200Mbps down and 45 Up

Re: Gig 1 Wifi Slow over Ethernet

what speeds do you get on your wired PC using www.speedtest.net (on the default server)
and on www.fast.com

Your drivers would be on the manufacture's website if they have any updates.

Re: Gig 1 Wifi Slow over Ethernet

Hey so just updated drivers and did a new test I got 500Mbps on Speed test and 390Mbps of Fast.com, however, what should I be expecting from being wired into the Hub, surely faster?

Re: Gig 1 Wifi Slow over Ethernet

i would expect if everything works expect 90%.

You have doubled the speed so that is a good start.
Its possible with everyone at home that you network might just be busy so maybe slower than normal.

Just keep that in mind

Re: Gig 1 Wifi Slow over Ethernet

I currently have 7 devices on the network including my own and everyone is asleep so I would've expected around 800Mbps

Re: Gig 1 Wifi Slow over Ethernet

when i say busy i mean the internet in general not the local network. More people are up are crazy times as people have nothing to do
