hello, my pc has a built-in ethernet port (RJ-45) but it seems that the maximum connection speed is 100 Mbps.

 

 

Do I need to upgrade with one of these solutions to use fiber (1Gbps) ?

Yes, but when you have the advanced setting on Auto Negotiation, it automatically connects at the best speed available.

 

Before buying any equipment, get your new internet service up and running and see if you get a 1 GBPS connection afterward.

 

There are too many things that could be the problem, but I can tell you with 100% accuracy that your PC's onboard ethernet adapter is a gigabit ethernet adapter and should be connecting a 1 GBPS if everything else (modem, router, cables) meets the 1 GBPS specifications.

Hi:

 

There is something wrong if you are only getting a 100 MBPS ethernet connection.

 

Your PC comes standard with an Intel® Ethernet Connection I219LM Gigabit integrated network connection.

 

You may want to try a different ethernet cable, and I suggest a Cat 6 one.

 

It has been my experience on HP business desktop PC's when you add a PCIe x1 ethernet adapter, the PC won't boot up and I have never found anyone that found a solution to that, so I cannot recommend you install a PCIe x1 ethernet adapter.

 

I would rather suggest a USB3 to RJ-45 gigabit ethernet adapter instead, which should work.

 

You need to plug it into a USB 3 port for the fastest speed.   Something like this.

Thanks for your reply, currently i don't have fiber, maybe this is the reason?

Currently my connection is at 7 Mbps

You're very welcome.

 

That shouldn't matter because I have a 200 MBPS internet service and when I connect a PC with a gigabit ethernet adapter to my gigabit router, I get a 1 GBPS connection speed that should provide me with the 200 MBPS download speed that I am paying for (which it does).

 

Your router may only be 100 MBPS, in which case the connection speed would indeed be only 100 MBPS.

 

So you need to verify that your current service has gigabit ethernet ports from the modem or router and all of the cables going from those devices are all CAT 6.

 

The onboard Intel gigabit ethernet adapter can be affected by any of those items not supporting a 1 GBPS transfer speed.

Maybe i got it, actually i use this powerline

when i get the fiber i don't think i will need it  

 

Thank you 

 

You have been very helpful

You're very welcome.

 

You still should be getting a 500 MBPS connection speed according to the specs for those devices, but again...if your internet modem is only 100 MBPS, and your ethernet cables are not CAT 6, then you will only get 100 MBPS out of the gigabit ethernet adapter.

HP Recommended

Thanks, but as you can see there is no 500 Mbps option

 

for this reason I think it indicates 100mbps

 

am I still wrong?
