Slow Ethernet speed

Envy 750-435st
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

(This post relates to my desktop, not notebook, the only option available on this form.)

The full available internet speed availble from modem is not available via ethernet.  When PC is connected via WiFi, speed tests at ~450 mbps, which is about the max available from modem.  But when PC is connected to ethernet, speed is ~95 mbps.     This result is occurs whether the PC is connected directly to  modem or connected through a small ethernet LAN.  The PC's Realtek ethernet controller, PLCe GBE,  status shows 100 mbps.  Autodisable gigabit, energy efficient ethernet, green ethernet aree all disabled.   Controller driver version, 10.19.627.2017, is current.  Windows 10 is also current.

I would like to get the faster speed on eithernet also.  All suggestions appreciated.

Jim Gregory

Slow Ethernet speed

Hi, Jim:

 

The only suggestion I can offer is to make sure you are using CAT 6 cables from all sources (modem to router, router to PC),  to the Realtek GBE ethernet controller.

Slow Ethernet speed

Update:  Slow ethernet speed problem continues despite new driver.   installed a new ethernet adapter driver from www.realtek.com: 10.36.701.2019.   All  configuration properties unchanged (as shown below):  e.g. Speed & Duplex set to 1.0 Gbps Full Duplex, etc.  Results same as with previous driver:  Speedtest ~95 independent of whether the  PC  is connected dectly to modem or connected through router.  The brand new Comcast (Xfinity) modem has both ethernet ports and integral Wi-Fi.  The Wi-Fi speed as measured by cell phone is ~450.    Any further suggestions?
