Solved!

ethernet driver Realtek PCIe FE Family Controller

HP Recommended

Running Windows 10   With 

HP Pavilion Desktop - 550-a114 

 Adapter options allow full and smooth running for Wireless through a Comcast Arris Modem at speeds above 25 MPS 

 

 HOWEVER- HP Pavilion Ethernet cable connect slows speeds down below 6 MPS-

 Tried new and previous Ethernet cables 

 When Start up using Ethernet cable connections the connection flashes ( on and off every second) or changes between 

cable connection ( lan direct ) and wireless - 

   Diagnostic repeats that most current updated drivers are installed. 

 HP support site suggest     * Realtek PCIe GBE Family Controller Driver upgrades for WIN 10 ---- 

 

  What could be issue with current problem and what is the difference with the  Realtek PCIe  GBE   verses the current 

 REALTEK PCIe FE  driver 

  thanks !

Hi,

 

Its specs shows it has:

 

  Technology: Realtek RTL8106E-CG

  • Data transfer speeds: up to 10/100 Mb/s
  • Transmission standards: 100BASE-T Ethernet

Source:   http://support.hp.com/au-en/document/c04755753

 

This is due to hardware limit. Driver won't fix it. Sometimes you can get over 6MB/s

 

I actually use the following adapter and get around 6-10 times that much:

Regards.

Thanks for speedy response BH -  I'll take your knowledgable reply as validation of my multi - trips down  the dark spot at the end of the street with the limitations I bought.  SO - based on your suggestion below picking up the Anker adapter ( as suggested from Amazon below) my cable connections could gain speeds in excess of 50 MB   /s ?   If so , I'll jump on board this week and pick one up....  All things being equal and no other issues It would justify the purchase for cable speed-   

   Thanks

Just as a follow up BH - Went today to best buy- Had some rewards points so I spoke to a Geek tech - They were so confused- They said it would not work.  Then I purchased a j5create Gig Ethernet & hub ( 3 port)  Used my rewards so it cost me $2.51 with the candy bar -  

 Windows 10 compat  so no driver required. Hocked it up and speed tested it a 21 Upload and 52 Download-  

    Thanks for the reply !

Hi, I have a HP Pavilion Media Center Desktop PC I purchased in 2007. I just changed from Xfinity to Verizon Fios Internet service. The new router is 1000 (960) upload and download speed, but my Ethernet hard wire connection speed to my PC is only 100 (96) upload and download. So things are not working so well as I expected. It says I have a Realtek PCIe FE Family Controller, IPV4 Connectivity, 100.0 Mbps speed. So clearly it is NOT capable of 1000 Mbps (1 Gigabit) speed as is. Everything works fine with PC, over the 12 years. I have updated Windows 10.  Is my PC capable of being upgraded, by new installed card or by external hard wired adapter, to 1000 upload and download speed to match the new Verizon Fios Router?  Or close to 1000, i.e. 960, or at least significantly more than the current 100 (96)?  Or am I out of luck?  IF I can, what product should I purchase?  Thank You. In Boston, USA.
