I'm using a HP 110-194 Desktop Product # H6U03AA#ABA and wish to increase my internet speed. We are set up with a 300Mbps system but this PC only supports up to 100 Mbps. Is the ethernet card upgradable on this system or is there another way to get more speed? Thanks

Unfortunately, there isn't much you will be able to do if anything.
Your PC's motherboard has no expansion slots to add a PCI express gigabit ethernet adapter, and I don't know how fast a connection you will get if you purchase a USB3 to RJ-45 gigabit ethernet adapter and plug it into an available USB 2 port.
That would be a risk you would have to take if you want to give one of those a try.
You definitely won't get the full 1.0 GB ethernet connection out of a USB 2 port.
You could try a dual band wifi adapter but again there is that USB 2 port speed reduction.
I just bought this one and only have an available USB 2 port, and it is giving me around a 250 MB download speed.
There is also a 5% off coupon you can check to get a small discount.
