If push comes to shove you can throw a packet analyzer on it to see how many re-transmits there are.
Category 5E cable. The cable from the server to the router is 3 meters. The router has one port for my room (which contains an 8 port gigabit switch), one for my brothers room (which contains an 8 port gigabit switch), one for the server, and one that goes out to a 10/100 24 port switch for the rest of the house. All devices should be terminated correctly, my dad was a journeyman electrician and spent 15 years of his life installing these cables for others.
Had to ask

only thing I can guess is the cable run is short enough, perhaps cat 5E isnt quite up to gigabit. I might try a cat 6E run (cheap enough to test)
