Ethernet not getting full speeds.

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hi,

 

So my ISP removed the 100Mbps and upped it to 250Mbps.

 

I ran the test on my PC and got 94Mbps Download and 50Mbps Upload...

And then I ran the test via WiFi 5Ghz and got 140Mbps Download and 50Mbps upload on my old Oneplus 3. My brother got 240Mbps~ Down and 50Mbps~ Upload on his Note 9.

 

Both the Ethernet devices show the same 94Mbps~ result but have the full Upload speed.

My wire is CAT 6e.

 

And the router test shows this. The test was done on my desktop.

Any ideas what is the cause? Do I need to upgrade my Ethernet Cable?

 

Thanks for reading,

Mak~

What model router is it? I suspect that the LAN ethernet ports are limited to 100Mbps

What model motherboard? The DIR-853 has all gigabit ports so that kills my idea of the router

Is the ethernet cable damaged or anything along the way?

Well then I would suspect the cable is damaged then since everything supports gigabit along the chain but your port is operating at 100Mbps

The other thing to check is to make sure the port is on auto negotiate. Starting from the adapter screenshot earlier to go Properties > Configure > Advanced Tab > Speed & Duplex

It was on Auto. I changed it to 1gig full and saw no change so reverted it to auto again.

 

Yea I might just get a new cable.. this one is like 6 years old..
