Windows 7: How to get 1GB networking to work?

Okay..

The NIC is built into the motherboard. In Device Manager it says "Realtek PCIe Family Controller" when I click on properties->Advanced, the first option is "Auto Disable Gigabit" and it set to "Disabled", Under "Speed & Duplex" it's set to "Auto Negotiation", though there is an option to force set to to 1.0Gpbs.

There is only 1 router/switch in the network which is a Netgear WNR3500L Gigabit router. The router has 4 ports all of which are in use, all cabling is Cat5e and less than 50'.

The device connected to WAN is only 100Mbps, but I don't think that should make any difference? I want the internal network to run at 1gbps.

I have a Denon HT Amp & a DishNetowrk reciever connected to the router, they are both only capable of 100mbps, but, that doesn't matter right?

Thanks,

-ThaChad

I'm not sure why you would need to force 1Gb speed as it should auto negotiate that, but if you need to use the force setting then do that.

The WAN doesn't matter nearly as much because you are limited by your ISP anyway.

It's the LAN speed you are working on here.

If you have just 1 item connected that is "only" capable of 100mbs, then everything will drop to 100mbs.

For testing
See if you can run a patch cable from PC to PC and see if they can connect between themselves at gigabit.
Or
try a gigabit switch instead of that router.
Or
try a joiner connector between the cable ends

Having one device at a 100 and the rest at 1000 should not drop the speed of the entire Lan to 100, if it does, get a good gigabit switch.
I have a 5 port Trendnet switch and can plug 100 devices in and others stay at 1000.

How are your cable ends ? Who made them?

I personally have never seen a gigabit device work under a gigabit unless there is a 100mb switch or router connection somewhere in between.
