only getting 250 to 450mb on 1gig connection.

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I just upgraded to gigabit internet with xfinity. I cant understand why my pc is only getting 250 to 450mb. 

The techs came out today and they are testing over 900mb on their little device, even using my Ethernet cable. 

What could cause my computer to not get the full speed? 

 

I have a gigabyte ga-z97-hd3 with an I3 4160, using the onboard Realtek GbE 10/100/1000

How are you testing? If you're using speedtest.net, many servers can't do the full 1G connection.

I've tried every one i can think of. speedtest.net, speak easy, google fiber, the one built into google search, and even ones comast and att and other providers just to try.

I'm in Indianapolis, speedtest.net has servers in Indy that are from other gigabit providers and we are also close to chicago. 

 

im getting faster speeds on my oneplus 6t on wifi then on eithernet. 

 

xfinity plugged their hand held device into the end of my cat6 eithernet cable and got over 900 consistently, it has to be something with my computer. 

 

im about to restart and load a linux thumb drive to rule out software.

potentially driver related, TBH i have had some shitty realtek NIC's including in my Z87 board.

i tried downloading lan drivers direct from gigabyte, no effect.

Your CPU cannot handle those speeds. Check your task manager while running and see if it pins. Speed test are CPU heavy

cpu is fluctuating between 45% and 55% during speed test...

 

also it ran fast off linux on a usb drive, so it has to be software or something in windows
