    My second Router the Ethernet is capped at 100mbps HELPPPP

    hello, i have been looking for weeks now to try and fix this? no luck? i see people saying it may be bad wires but mine are all cat 6 i had all mine done off the same reel of wire too, now the one going from my virgin media hub into my second router, when i put that into my xbox upstairs or my laptop direct i get 257mbps thats how i know its not bad wiring. when i connect it into my new router as a access point and use that as a wireless point and to branch mulitpul Ethernets into my bedroom it then everything coming out of my second router get capped at 100mbps i dont think my lan ports are capped because it gives me a option of 1gbps any ideas? il post a photo too of what im looking at:

    We don't know the make and model of the routers, so hard to give any kind of valid advice right from the start.

    If you go here to see the specs for your router:

    RT-AC51U | Networking | ASUS United Kingdom

    You will notice that the 4 ports are only 10/100 base T and not 10/100/1000. That would explain the 100mb only.
