500Mb/s internet ouly outputting about 100Mb/s

That is showing that the port is linking at 100Mb/s. This probably isn't a setting (it is probably set to auto speed) and you actually have a cable problem or other issue. Here's how you can test:

-swap the cables in LAN1 and LAN2

-if LAN1 stays at 100Mb/s, then the issue is either the settings in the router, or the pins inside LAN1 are bent or broken (look closely with a flashlight)

-if LAN2 changes to 100Mb/s and LAN1 changes to 1Gb/s, then the issue is either the ethernet cable you are using, or something on the other end

Im actually having a similar issue with my ASUS router (RTAC56U). I have it going to a Linksys gigabit router that I am using as a switch, then plugging into my motherboard with GIgabit, but I am only getting a 100Mbps connection. My internet is only 100Mbps so it's not a big deal, but I use my desktop as a media server so it would be nice to get better speeds on my home network.

 

The link between my ASUS router and my Linksys router is only at 100Mbps, as is my connection between my Linksys router and PC

 

Nevermind, my Linksys router is actually a 100Mbps router.
