Low internet speed

HP Recommended

Microsoft Windows 7 (64-bit)

I am receiving 300 mbps fiber-optic/wi-fi internet speed, confirmed by the internet service provider and connects on my own desktop computer without any problem.  However, on my niece's  laptop, only about 100 mbps is possible.  A visiting technician suggested 'that's all Notebooks allow'.

Was he right or wrong?     Can I do anything to increase the speed? What checks do I need to make, if any?  I'm not very tech-savvy, so any replies will have to be idiot proof! 🙂 . Thanks.

It ONLY has   Integrated 10/100 BASE-T Ethernet LAN, that why.  He is/was right. I'm using the following adapter for my older machine

Now I've got 2 more USB ports.
