The maximum Ethernet speed for most of our devices is 1 Gbps. If you’re using the Ethernet port but the speed is slower than 1 Gbps, the issue may lie in the connected laptop, the Ethernet cable, the router, or the adapter/hub/dock itself.
Here are some troubleshooting tips that may help locate and resolve the problem.
For the laptop:
- Update your Ethernet driver.
- For a device using a Realtek Ethernet chip, please download the following driver: https://www.realtek.com/en/component/zoo/category/network-interface-controllers-10-100-1000m-gigabit-ethernet-usb-3-0-software
- For a device using an ASIX Ethernet chip, please download the following driver:
To download the driver, go to Software & Tools > Drivers > USB Ethernet ICs > AX88179
- If your laptop is a MacBook with an M1 chip, update to the latest version of macOS
- Try this device with a different laptop and see if the issue persists.
For the ethernet cable:
- Confirm the maximum speed of your Ethernet cable.
- If possible, plug your network cable directly into the Ethernet port of your laptop and see if you get a stable internet connection.
- Try a different Ethernet cable.
For the router:
- Confirm whether or not your router can support a higher Ethernet speed.
- Try a different router.
For the adapter/hub/dock:
- Try with a different device to see whether you can get a faster wired internet connection.
