    NavyLCDR speedtest.com will not show what you are getting from the ISP. ShaperProbe and Glasnost are just two of the tools used to give you your real speed that the ISP is supposed to have you set for.

    The problem with speedtests. Is that the information can be skewed and is always never accurate.

    Badly Worded


    I probably badly worded that,
    I should have said that the figures shown are not the maximum capable, they are what the device is currently receiving
    It does not matter if its Ethernet or Wifi
    IE if my ISP decided to upgrade my internet which they have just done >>>then that figure will change<<<,
    EH Voila mine just has.
    They could bump it up to 300 thats the max for my device.

    Your statement is only true when your computer is connected directly to a signal provided by the ISP. In most households in the US, and in the OP's situation, this is not applicable. The OP has a combination modem/router: Huawei HG8245. The ISP controls the speed at which the modem connects to the internet, but does not control the speed at which the computers connect to the LAN ports. The modem portion of the unit hands the internet traffic over to the router portion which is advertised to be a Gigabit router. This is so that computers can talk to each other at Gigabit speeds - and if the ISP provides a lower bandwidth to the modem, then then internet traffic will simply consume only a fraction of the bandwidth of the router.

    The OP's connection is showing the speed of the connection between the computer and the router which is 100% independent of the speed at which the modem connects to the internet.

    My guess would be a faulty or damaged lan cable the same thing happened to me but it was connecting at 10 Mbps, I replaced it with another cat5E and the connection went to 1 Gbps
    I had this happen to me recently as well. Certainly worth a try.

    Try these drivers, for Intel drivers, better get the drivers from Intel than the motherboard manufacturer:

    Download Network Adapter Driver for Windows 8*

    It could be the cable. I'm using Belden MediaTwist CAT6+ crescent shaped cable with standard 50 micron gold plated connectors as I bought all of this back in 1999.

    Intel states on their website that it is better to get the driver from the manufacturer rather than Intel... contrary to what you said. They only provide the drivers when the manufacturer stops updating theirs with new OSes, or when there are problems with the manufacturer's driver.

    That's what Intel has always said but when it comes to Intel drivers, I've been using them for the last 14 years, the manufacturer will stop updating other than putting a initial driver which usually is very old as it's never updated. Ofcourse originally, I had Intel PCI NIC cards before it become integrated into the motherboard. I don't remember if ProSet comes with the OEM drivers or not.

    So you were only paying for 100mb?
    I thought so.

    You didn't read his reply. He could be paying for 10Gig internet and his connection to the router side of the modem would still be 100Mbps.

    The HG8245 has a 100Mbps router. That's what speed the computer is going to connect to it. The HG8245S has a 1 Gigabit router. It will connect to the computer at 1Gbps. The modem part of the equipment will connect to the internet at whatever speed the hardware is capable of (maximum) and whatever the ISP limits it too (minimum).
