    [SOLVED] Motherboard is limiting my download speed?

    In my house, I've had Google Fiber. I've ran a Ethernet test from the main hub, to my PC and it's shown that I'm able to get 980Mbps down and 890Mbps upload. Amazing, but my landlord won't allow me to keep the ethernet hooked and wired throughout the house. Sucks, but no fighting it I suppose...

    Question Downloads from Steam/Epic Games are up to par, internet downloads (chrome/edge) are incredibly slow

    In the past, I've had no issues with this, however recently the download speeds I get from chrome are around 1-2 megabytes per second, while downloads from steam, epic games, and other non browser related downloads are upwards of 12-13 megabytes per second.

    [SOLVED] My PC cannot reach speeds higher than 100 Mbps

    So I have a 300 Mbps plan, and every device on my network can reach these speeds using speedtest.net. The steps I've taken up until now: Had my ISP install a new modem, bought a 4Gbps router (linked with a short 2ft, new cat5e cable), purchased a new Cat 6 cable that goes directly from the...

    Question Desktop Internet slower than other devices

    My desktop download speed is significantly lower than other devices. Whether they are on Wi-Fi or Ethernet cable does not seem to matter. Phone and tablet on Wi-Fi are getting over what I’m paying for. Same for PS4 & Laptop, except they are directly connected to the router with ethernet cable...
