Linksys E1000 speed limit

Hello all!

I have connected my 2 computers to E1000 with cables and looks like router is setting up some speed limits. Does anybody knows how I can remove speed limit? Did not found any setting in Cisco Connect and Advanced settings

Before: speed ~100Mbps
After: speed ~72Mbps (never goes higher, very strong feeling that it is limited)

What is "before"? What is "after"?

Re: Linksys E1000 speed limit

before - without connecting through router
after - after connecting through router


moment ago I tried both options
directly to my ISP - ~100Mbps
through router - ~ 72 Mbps

three times switched cable between both options and results are same

Does this happen on both the wired computers?

I don't think there is any setting on the router to limit the wired speed between computer and the router.

Try to reset the router and reconfigure it.

Maybe you have to adjust the MTU. Read this http://www.dslreports.com/faq/5793 and adjust the MTU to the optimal setting for your connection.
