Hi! I use a ASUS TUF Z270 MARK 2 motherboard with the latest drivers and for whatever reason, the speed of my LAN is slower than other computers that run on the same cable. I tend to get less than 30 megabits per second, while a laptop on the same connection runs up to 200 megabits per second. My DNS was originally set to Cloudflare's 1.1.1.1 DNS but disconnecting from it didn't seem to change anything.

Is there anything else I can try to fix this?
Thanks in advance!

Go to you ethernet adapter settings and make sure its set to Full Duplex
I've tried it and I think it has worked. The Google speedtest showed the same numbers but when I went on the Ookla Speedtest, it went much faster. This was also after the fact that I've changed hardware (i.e. new motherboard, cpu, etc.) for other reasons.
Maybe there wasn't an issue in the first place (?) but anyway, thanks for the help!
