UE300 TP-LINK Gigabit Ethernet USB Adapter less than 100Mbps!!
a week ago

Model: UE300

Hardware Version: V2

Firmware Version: 10.34.603.2019

My home broadband is supplied by Virgin Media 350Mbps fibre.

I have a Dell Inspiron 15 5570 laptop. It comes witha Dell GigabitEthernet adapter but I am told this is limited to 100Mbps by the Realtek PCle FE Family Controller.

I therefore bought  the UE300 TP-LINK Gigabit Ethernet USB Adapter

PnP worked but there was no improvement in speed - approx 95Mbps - which is the best I was achieving before

I updated the driver to Realtek 10.34.603.2019 but still no change

 

What else could be stopping the adapter from giving me faster speeds?

I see in Device Manager 2 * VirtualBox Host-Only Ethernet Adapter. Task Manager shows them as connected but there's no activity. Are they relevant to this problem?

Please disable the built-in gigabit ethernet adapter on the Dell computer first. 

 

And then please change the speed&duplext to 1Gbps; go to computer management-device manager-network adapters, right click the UE300 and go to properties and change it under advanced-speed&duplex page.

 

After that, please verify the speed you can get from the main router.

 

Meanwhile, try to change another ethernet cable (cat5e or above).

 

May it help and have a nice day.
