Hi guys

I have MSI P55-GD65
and onboard LAN on this mobo support 10/100/1000Mbps. But when i go in Local Area Connection show me only 100Mbps speed.
Maybe is stupid question, i have internet connection speed only 8Mb/s and i can't reach to 1000Mbp/s never, but why stay 100Mb/s if mb support 1000Mb/s?

Thanks!!!

More about : lan speed 100 1000mbps

You pay your internet service provider according to the speed you select. The faster the speed, the more it costs.

dude you don't understand me, i ask why in Local Area Connection stay 100Mbp/s if mobo support up to 1000Mbp/s?

I doubt it will list 1000 unless your actual speed is 1000. I don't know of any internet services that run that fast.

hi
it could be that yor router or modem's lan ports only support 10/100 mb/s, and there will be no difference between 100m or 1000m unless you sharing stuff throughout your network

Yes dude, can be. I will see about that...

Do you connect with a router, if your router only supports up to 100Mb, then you will never connect at 1000Mb, you can only go as fast as the slowest device on the network, think of it like this, you have a car that can go 1000mph, but the speed limit is 100mph, and then there is traffic (Information going through network), will you still be able to go 1000mph, NO! Only way of doing this is to get a Gigabit Network router, but all PC's that connect will need to run at 1000mb or you are still limited on the speed, plus Internet speed will never change, even if you pay for a 50Mb download connection, you will not go over 100Mb, high speed like you want is usually only for a personal/business network to transfer files faster but doesn't apply to Internet unless you go with a OC10 connection and are connected directly to the modem (I believe an OC10 connection, with have 155Mb/s transfer rate is like $300+ a month)

lol don't need me 155mbp/s, i just ask to be sure and maybe for file sharing in my house. But only my PC support 1000Mbp/s :(  btw my router don't support 1000Mbp/s, obviously 100Mbp/s...

Anyway, thanks guys..

no prob, and who wouldn't want insane speed like that? HAHA. I run a 30Mb connection and it still isn't fast enough for my taste, LOL. I worked for a major ISP and am Network certified and have worked with those insane speeds, I think it spoiled me... I use to download stuff at work since I was one of the admins and it would download like 2 Gigs in 20 seconds, I use to go nuts....... :)

Even if your router supported 1Gbs, you still may be limited to 100Mbs, if you cabling and connectors are Cat5, you need at least Cat5-e to connect at 1Gbs. A cat5 connector will limit your speed even if you have cat6 cabling and a 1Gbs router. Most ISPs do not offer connectiion speeds above 100Mbs at the present time. Verzion FIOS has tested 10Gbs, but theat is not with the equipment it presently offers to customers.

My cable is CAT.5e but obviously my router don't support 1Gb/s or maybe my provider don't offer me connection above 100Mb/s.

all mine are 5e, it's the most common on market now and you actually have to request the others, at least here in Montreal, Canada it's like that, and our fastest in this region is 50Mb, I run the 30Mb connection and can download 1Gb in about 5 Minutes. Can't really complain, I can download quite a bit at that speed, but only have a 100Gb bandwidth limit per month.... let's say I have gone over that limit, by a lot :)
