Onboard NIC 10MBps instead of 100 MBps/1GBps

Hello,

I recently built a new computer and for some reason, the onboard NIC will only work at 10MBps full-duplex. I have tried auto and setting it to 100MBps or 1000MBps, but no luck. Only time I can connect to internet is when I do 10MBps. My router is a Belkin Wireless router model number: F5D8235-4 V2. The firmware is up to date. The motherboard is an ASRock 870 Extreme3. I couldn't download the drivers from the ASRock site for everything, but I did get the LAN and installed them, so they are up to date. After I couldn't get it to work, I tried connecting my cable to my laptop, which also has a 1 GBps NIC onboard, and that worked so I know it is not the cable. It is just a Cat5 cable not crossover. I cannot think of anything else I can do. Please any suggestions would be helpful.

To clarify you statement, when the Router is plugged into your ASRock 870 Extreme 3, you only get 10MBps but when plugged into your laptop, it works as designed at 10MBps, 100MBps or 1000MBps?

Well, it seems like you have a motherboard issue of some type. It could be a conflict with drivers. I would try and access another PC and download all the required drivers for the MOBO onto a flash drive and install them. See if that helps with the issue.

Ok I will try and do that. Unfortunately my flash drive stopped working. I am going to pickup another one tomorrow and I will let you know how it goes. Thank you for replying tecmo34.

So i got the drivers all updated for everything, yet it says I still have only 10 MBps. I ordered a PCI NIC so I am going to test that. I read on another forum of a similar issue and that was how they solved it. I will update this is it solves it in case others experience similar woes.

Well, I couldn't ever get the onboard lan working, but I picked up a cheap PCI card and it worked perfectly.

I have the exact same problem with my pc just started happening yesterday, and yes i was super pissed about it so i then decided to buy myself a PCI Lan card for my pc, i'm only having a guess the reason for this problem for me was all after i did a smart lan test nd it wasn't going any where so i decided to exit it, but also i updated the driver ever since then i think the on board ethernet has been a pain in the ass

Please do not dredge up year old posts, or even a month old post for that matter. I'm sure a mod will be by to spank you shortly. LoL
