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

Hi:

 

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.
