Windows 7: Can't get gigabit speeds (tomato)

06 Nov 2010   #1

Windows 7 Pro 64 bit
Can't get gigabit speeds (tomato)

I'm using the newest tomato firmware on my Asus RT-N16 router. I cannot seem to get my speeds to gigabit however. I know for a fact that the router is a gigabit router, I have the newest driver for my gigabit network card, and all cabling is at least cat5e.

I used to use DD-WRT on my old router and I'm more familiar with that, but I started using Tomato on my asus and like it much more. However, I cannot find anywhere to change the LAN speed from 100mb to 1000mb, or any options regarding link speeds. I'm pretty sure this is a problem with the settings, since all hardware is gigabit capable.

If anyone has a good bit of knowledge in Tomato firmware, I'd appreciate the help.

Nevermind, one of my cables actually was older.
