Simply put. Unplugged the CAT7 patch cable from the wall outlet to the ASUS router. Swapped the cable. Wan status changed to 1GB port. Swapped the cable back to the original patch cable and the router stayed at 1GB on the port? Scratch head hit head against wall.
As strange as it sounds, could have been a dirty connector which is not making proper contact in the Ethernet Socket and the process of removing and reinserting the cable has cleaned / made the connection secure.

Have had to come back to this. I realise now that the HUB4 seems to be having issues with negotiating to the ASUs router wan port I have. The wan port status drops to 100mb and then when I take the wan cable out and plug it back in it reverts to 1GB on the port status. After a while the port status drops back down to 100mb. After doing a rinse and repeat I.e take lead out plug back in port reflected back to 1GB?
This makes me believe there is a problem with the HUB4 not maintaining its negotiation on the port of 1GB?
At present I have put in a simple switch between the HUB4 in router mode which is then connected to the router wan port. At present 1GB is holding.
I am also only getting approx 500mbps directly connected to my router which concerns me when I am supposed to be getting a gig...
Can you set up a Broadband Quality Monitor (BQM) at thinkbroadband.com - this will give you an insight into what is happening with the signal at the other side of the Hub, it will take a few hours to get any kind of trend showing although you should post the link straight away.
Post a link to your BQM on here.
