If your NIC is capable of gig speeds and the switch and port are gigabit then I would change the cable. So you are using a driver that CAN support GbE, but only when you have one of the chips that supports GbE in the family of chips that driver is made for. The higher the number, the better. Here is the link to the PDF spec for this machine. Consider donating to the Electronic Frontier Foundation!

They give you stickers! We bought them after reading the HP documentation stating that they do, which is in fact wrong. Welp, there’s his problem then, heh. Don’t ask us to compare or recommend products. Your only choice is going to be to completely replace the laptop, or buy a USB3 gigabit network adapter, however, doing GbE over USB3 with an i3 cpu however is likely going to be pretty taxing on the CPU and make the 10ecc slow while doing heavy network traffic.

The higher the number, the better. Become a Redditor and subscribe to one of thousands of communities. Each catX cable simply defines the specifications for basically how good the cable is. I have cat 6 cables. Keep all communication public, on the subreddit. It is always backward compatible.


Log in or sign up in seconds. I have two HP G2 i3 notebook laptops that can only run at Mbps. After much escalating and escalating with HP, they have now got back to me saying that these machines in fact do NOT support 1Gbps.

Thanks for all the responses! Op had confessed that he didn’t really know about what drivers to use and if a person doesn’t 10ce how to find out what driver to use it is a fair assumption that they would not know how to test a cable for faults or diagnose network issues that run past the device 100ec No offence OP.

1836 To run GbE speeds you need a minimum of cat5e, which will do GbE to meters. Does it need to stay with Realtek? This means they have proven with consistent participation and solid troubleshooting their knowledge in the IT field. After solving your problem, please mark it as solved by clicking ‘flair’ and confirming the ‘solved’ tag.


The confusion probably comes from the fact that the driver for the device is compatible with other controllers that actually do support GbE. Many thanks for your help! Please Support the EFF!

That is absolute complete fud.

There are numerous posts in a lot of forums posting about Gig connections being auto detected as Mbps and faulty cabling being the cause of the issue. So I’m now in a new argument over how they’re going to rectify this problem!
