10/100BASE-T Ethernet LAN speed

Q: 10/100BASE-T Ethernet LAN speed

My HP Pavilion 17-e119wm Notebook PC with built in Realtek PCle FE Family Controller 10/100BASE-T Ethernet LAN and upgraded to Windows 10 and says it has most up to date driver version 8.20.815.2013, is only getting 10mbps download speed plugged in on ethernet. I am paying for 60mbps through my ISP. My WiFi gets close to 60mbps. Shouldnt this laptop plugged in to hard wired ethernet cable get close to 60mbps? When I click on ethernet status in Windows Network Connections, under speed it shows a bottleneck of 10mbps. How can I increase that number to 100mbps or increase my ethernet speed to 60mbps?

You may think you?re paying for a 15 Mbps connection, but you?re actually getting an ?up to 15 Mbps? connection that may be slower.We?ll look at why actual speeds differ from advertised speeds and how you can identify whether you?re actually getting the Internet connection speeds you?re paying for. Actual vs. Advertised Speeds: Hard DataData showing that most people are getting slower broadband speeds than they?re advertised is easy to find. To get this data, all someone has to do is run a speed test on their connection and compare the actual results to the advertised speeds. In most cases, the speeds are slower.If you?re curious about Internet speeds in the US, you can view the official US government National Broadband Map site and compare ?SpeedTest vs. Advertised? to view the difference between actual speed tests and advertised speeds on a map. All the purple and pink dots are slower than advertised, while the light green dots are areas which match their advertised speeds.The map appear to be primarily dark purple and pink ? it?s clear that most people are getting slower speeds than they were advertised. Faster speeds than advertised, which are dark green, are even harder to find. What Causes Slow DownsSo why exactly do so few people get the advertised speeds? Well, it?s obviously true that Internet service providers have an incentive to be as optimistic as possible with their numbers, but it?s not just misleading marketing. There are other factors involved:End-User Hardware Issues: If you have an old router that just can?t keep up with modern speeds or a poorly configured Wi-Fi connection that?s being slowed down by interference, you won?t actually experience the connection speeds you?re paying for ? and that?s not the Internet service provider?s fault.Distance From ISP: The further you are away from your Internet service provider?s hardware, the weaker your signal can become. If you?re in a city, you?re likely to have a faster connection than you would in the middle of the countryside.Congestion: You?re sharing an Internet connection line with many other customers from your Internet service provider, so congestion can result as all these people compete for the Internet connection. This is particularly true if all your neighbors are using BitTorrent 24/7 or using other demanding applications.Time of Day: Because more people are probably using the shared connection line during peak hours ? around 6pm to midnight for residential connections ? you may experience slower speeds at these times.Throttling; Your Internet service provider may slow down (or ?throttle?) certain types of traffic, such as peer-to-peer traffic. Even if they advertise ?unlimited? usage, they may slow down your connection for the rest of the month after you hit a certain amount of data downloaded.Server-Side Issues: Your download speeds don?t just depend on your Internet service provider?s advertised speeds. They also depend on the speeds of the servers you?re downloading from and the routers in between. For example, if you?re in the US and experience slowness when downloading something from a website in Europe, it may not be your Internet service provider?s fault at all ? it may be because the website in Europe has a slow connection or the data is being slowed down at one of the routers in between you and the European servers.Many factors can impact Internet connection speed, and it?s hard to know which is the precise problem. Nevertheless, in real-life usage, you?ll generally experience slower speeds than your Internet service provider advertises ? if only because it?s so dependent on other people?s Internet connections. Measuring Your Internet Connection SpeedYou can attempt to measure your Internet connection speed by using the SpeedTest website. Select a nearby server and SpeedTest will establish a connection to it, trying to download the file as fast as it can. It also attempts to upload data, testing your upload speed. This gives you a good idea of the speed your Internet service provider is giving you, as the SpeedTest servers are chosen because they can deliver very fast speeds. Using a nearby server allows you to test a more direct connection, with minimal interference from third-party routers ? for example, if you choose a SpeedTest server on the other side of the world, you?ll almost certainly experience slower speeds. Check your connection speeds at different times, including at peak hours and off. They may fluctuate over time.

Hi, anyone know if the speed of a broadband connection would be reduced if you connected the cable/dsl modem with two ethernet wires linked by a coupler instead of one longer ethernet wire ???

The reason I'm asking is because I hooked up my PS2 unit to my cable modem so that I can play NBA online, but the speed seems slow (more like in slow motion) and I'm wondering if this was because I joined two ethernet wires with a coupler ? I had to do this or get a longer wire because the TV is on the other side of the room from the computer.

Thanks for any info.

My PC was working fine until a week ago. I have a 200 mbps subscription, and was getting about that in speed tests.

Suddenly, a week ago, my internet slowed down. Settings only show a 100 mbps (see: https://gyazo.com/34fa2b5c517a1e6da66b55fd8f8725c5)

I tried two different laptops on the same exact spot with the same cable, and I'm getting the usual 200 mbps speed.

I tried duplex at auto negotiation as well as 1 gbps, doesn't change anything.

Updated the drivers, still no change.

I also tried restarting PC, restarting the router, and resetting it to factory settings, nothing seems to help.

Neither does switching the port I connect to.

If it helps, my motherboard is Asus H110 Plus, which has Realtek RTL8111H.

In other words, I know it's not the modems fault, it isn't the cable, it isn't the settings of speed and duplex. But somehow my PC is limiting the speed to 100 mbps.

I'd like to add that there have been no hardware changes, and no setting changes (apart from the usual Windows 10 updates). Is there anything that could have caused this?

EDIT: A few more details.
OS is Windows 10 Pro 64-bit.
Drivers are updated.
I tried different settings for ethernet, including jumbo frames, disabling green ethernet, etc., but nothing works.
The speed was fine for months prior to this, and suddenly it changed about a week ago.

Hi all,

Ive recently got setup with a wireless broadband setup (coaxial cable from rooftop panel, down into a cable modem, which is connected with a Cat5 ethernet cable to my pc)

The thing I don't get is the speed of the LAN reported in Vista64. I have an Asus P6T Deluxe V2 motherboard with dual gigabit ethernet ports, but the rated speed of the LAN is only 10.0mbps.

I have checked the Speed and Duplex settings on the NIC, it is set to "auto-negotiate" with the possibility to change it to "1000 mbps Full Duplex" Ive seen on other forums that changing this setting can have no affect. Could this be a configuration issue, or the fact that the cable modem (branded only "Com21") may not be compatible with faster speeds on ethernet, or maybe the Cat5 cable needs to be changed?
**UPDATE - I remember that my PS3 had a Cat6 cable in the box, connected that between the modem and the NIC and it still ran at 10 mbps. I then changed the Speed n Duplex setting to 1000mbps at which point I lost all connectivity and only regained it when i switched to the 100mbps option...........

A:LAN Speed on Gigabit Ethernet Port

If you're plugging your PC directly into the modem, you're likely seeing the limitation of the port speed of the modem which is typically either 10 or 100 Mbit. This won't matter too much as I doubt your wireless service is giving you anything over 10 Mbit anyways.

Hi, I recently got a new router (Linksys AC2600) and when I plugged it in on my pc, it was wroking fine, eccept for it's speed. We have 100 Mbs internet and every other computer in the house is averaging ~90Mbs when I test it's speed. My PC however, only manages to get ~50. I know it should be faster and I was even receiving ~90 Mbs on this PC with my old router. Frankly, I'm not sure what to do and I really don't want to wipe my PC unless it is the only solution.

I have been looking into an issue with a customers WAN/LAN investigating slow throughput.  
A couple of things I have learned and have confused me on how to determine the actual speed of a connection between a PC and its switch/router...

When I throttle the port that a PC is connected to 512Kb/s , using QOS,  the PC still says the link speed is 1Gb/sWhen I set the the port speed to say 10Mb/s Windows says it is connected to a 10Mb/s link.The difference suggests Windows or the NIC, asks the Switch for the link speed and doesn't actually measure the line speed.
Why am i looking at this?
I have always been curious about the impact poorly deployed cabling has on actual LAN performance.  If for example a cable ran past a device that induced some sort of interference that slowed traffic across the cable, then Windows will be oblivious
to it, and all the testing at switch and device level may not highlight the fact that the cable run from the outlet to the patch panel is
the problem.

I saw a video where a person doubled up the Ethernet cable from the gateway to the pc and taped both ends to hold them together but leaving the pins exposed. The exposed part surprised me as I though they should be taped too. The cables ran parallel to each other. He said the ones you get at stores just put double cables inside. He showed a speed test before and after and the results were very impressive. Before I go on a fool's errand, is there any truth to this ?

Hey all
I'm wondering if anyone can help with this one. around a once a day for the last few days my Ethernet connection between my PC and router (Virgin Media Hub 3 in case your wondering) cuts out for around 30-60 seconds comes back on but instead of receiving a 1 Gbps connection it only receives 100 Mbps. Until a few weeks ago this would have been a non issue since I had a 100mbps internet connection but I have since taken a free speed upgrade to 150 Mbps. This isn't an urgent issue since unplugging the cable from the router sorts the problem out but it is annoying so any advice would be appreciated. I have also posted a screenshot the network detail window as well.

I've been having issues with my Ethernet speed on my 9360 while connected to TB16. I can't get anything above 100 Mbps even though my Ethernet speed is 250 Mbps. My other laptop with built-in network card has no problems with reaching the full 250 Mbps.
I've checked TB16 specs and it tells there's a gigabit Ethernet controller onboard, so it shouldn't be an issue.
I have latest drivers from Dell's website and also tried the latest Realtek drivers - no speed change.
I've played with the driver settings and disabled all speed optimizations and enforced 1 Gbps full duplex as a default setting, but still no effect.
I've seen a couple of other forum members reporting the same issue, but all of them were running Linux, while I'm running Windows 10 64-bit. Apparently, the fault is with the dock.
Can anyone confirm the limitation and can suggest any workaround? 

A:TB16 Ethernet speed limited at 100 Mbps

You definitely don't want to force 1 Gbps Full in Device Manager.  Forcing linespeed and duplex settings especially on gigabit connections can lead to worse performance even when those hardcoded settings are correct. The standard for gigabit is auto-negotiate.  There's a Realtek network FIRMWARE update for the TB16 and WD15 docks around here somewhere, but I don't know if that would help this issue.  But my main question is: What do you mean your Ethernet is 250 Mbps?  There's 100 Mbps and 1 Gbps.  There's no standard for 250 Mbps Ethernet.Have you tried a different cable?  Do you have any other systems that are negotiating at 1 Gbps with the cable and switch/router port you're currently using with the TB16?

Hey guys!

This issue is most puzzling to me.

Since yesterday the internet began to act unsoundly (through WiFi). As in I never had this problem before. There were periods where it was fast enough to play some online games, watch Youtube no problem, and then it would shut off randomly. So since yesterday I have been restarting the modem with only very short term resolutions to the issue.
I accessed the modem through my web browser and it says the connection is always working fine. Despite that, I called my ISP and they claimed there was an issue, and forwarded it to Deutsche Telekom. Since then I did some experimenting and plugged my computer into the modem with the ethernet cable.

Boom. No problem whatsoever. It's been top speed and reliable.

So I'm assuming this is an issue with Windows 8, hopefully you guys can help me out!

If it helps, I downloaded and installed updates for Windows today. There are 18 optional ones that I did not download yet, but I did download and install the important ones no problem. I checked the network adapters and they all state "The best driver for your software is already installed."

Thanks in advance.

A:Ethernet Speed is suddenly way slower than wifi

Read other 16 answers

So I just installed Windows 8 on my gaming rig. I gotta say, after being skeptical of this whole OS for a while, installing it fresh and trying it out shows just how useful (and FAST) it can be.

The only thing about W8 that isn't fast is my ethernet adapter. When connected, downloads are slow, pages take long to respond, videos are constantly choppy and buffering, etc. Looking at the ethernet connection in Task manager, it looks like the connection is being speed capped at 1.0 Mbps. The graph of the speed fluctuates up and down in the low range, but hits a wall at 1.0 mbps.

This wasn't the case when I had Win 7- I could easily pull 80 Mbps on speedtest.net (Chattanooga fibre optic internet FTW). My WiFi adapter in Win 8 also does not have this problem, but I want to use the wired connection because the campus wi-fi is unreliable. I have already updated the LAN drivers, trying both the Windows- suggested driver and the one from the manufacturer website. No difference. Can anyone help me out here so I can start installing my steam games and not have it take 5 years?

A:Slow ethernet speed after installing Windows 8

Wow! That should not happen! I have to assume that Win 8 drivers were available for your hardware LAN and you installed them accordingly. So, Win 8 is perfectly capable of delivering the same speeds you experienced in Win 7; especially over a wired ethernet connection. Now, you may wish to try or ignore my suggestions but the first thing I would do is eliminate the router from the mix by plugging my ethernet connection directly into the modem and retest. However, it is strange that your wifi does not have this issue as well. Also, you said you downloaded drivers from both Windows Update and the manufacturer's website. So, does manufacturer mean the builder of your unknown system or the manufacturer of the LAN component on your motherboard?

One other thing. Have you downloaded the latest bios update for your unknown system and is it Win 8 compatible/ready?

You might want to consider adding your system specs if none of my suggestions work. Good luck.

I recently got a new laptop a HP Pavilion x36 13-s108na 13,3" convertible laptop. I returned to university with my laptop and the connection speed using the wi-fi is below 200kb, but when i use an ethernet, the connection speed is normal above 5mb. I have also got Linux (Debian) latest version duel booted and the problem still persists on both operating systems. I think it has something to do with the wireless card which is (Intel(R) Duel Band Wireless-AC 3165). I have also tried it on my desktop which works fine both wireless and ethernet.

This problem only started happening at university, the connection speed was fine before using university internet.

That confuses me. I did the speedtest and I got 2307 kbps with ethernet and I got
5191 kbps download speed with wireless. Why is that? shouldn't being directly connected make your connection faster?

A:Faster download speed with wireless than ethernet?

If the speed tests continue to show this problem, it is also possible that you have a less than perfectly crimped Ethernet cable. I have seen poorly crimped network cables work but offer reduced transmission speeds. Just try another patch cable to rule this out as an issue.

Is a gigabit connection a pure connection at a gigabit OR
does the connection adjust speeds lower or higher or what?

If you look into the connection data and see no errors and your connected at a gigabit rating does this mean that is a real gigabit or has it negotiated some other speed rating.

A:gigabit ethernet speed questions, do you get 3/4 or 1/2 or full speeds

It would depend on if something on the network is limiting your speeds. Typically you dont have anything on a home network until you reach your ISP and they will probably be throttling your speeds.

It also depends on other devices. If you have a switch or router that only has a 100mbps port then your gigabit port on your PC will only work at 100mbps.

If you look into the connection data and see no errors and your connected at a gigabit rating does this mean that is a real gigabit or has it negotiated some other speed rating

You will be getting full gigabit.

Remember that its gigabit not gigabyte, so for file transfer speeds the theoretical speeds is 128 MBps.

I have a fairly high speed internet service (300Mbps). I have another desktop plug to the same dumb switch and using fast.com to confirm my speed is about what I expect. But, when I test the speed with a XPS 9550 + TB16 ethernet connected to the same switch, I'm only getting around 100Mbps even after I've upgraded to the latest Thunderbolt controller driver and ethernet driver.

My audio line out is connected to the back of the TB16 as well. The audio started getting some noise after about 30min use and I had to unplug and replug to get rid of the interference. At the end, I had to just not use the audio after the driver failed to re-recognize the connection. But, alas, without the audio connection to the TB16, my ethernet speed is up to 300Mbps again. Also, audio connected to the front headphone jack also slows down my ethernet speed too.

Hope this resolve someone's quest for full ethernet speed from their TB16.

I have two computers connected to the Hub

My wifes computer fujitsu 4 core runs at the true 150 meg speed with wired ethernet cable (Perfect)

My laptop however runs at half speed with wired ethernet connection. In fact it runs at the same speed as it does when connecting via wireless to the same superhub. about 75 megs.

I have posted an ipconfig image if this is any help.

Kindest Regards

A:HP Laptop running same speed on ethernet cable as Wireless

Hi .... You have to remember it is up to 150mb ... You will not get this speed all the time ..

Have you just got Virgin Installed lately if so it takes some time to settle ...

Also does your Network Adapter support the top speed ? ...
As for wireless and Lan connections they can be the same speed with Virgin ... Though you should be getting more than 75mb at times ....
Virgin Media - Extremely fast broadband speeds

We recently bought a new LG internet tv. Ever since then we have had major issues with our internet.

Whenever it is turned on the internet speed drops significantly, making it near impossible to watch a video online. I have read somewhere that this could be due to the TV causing interference with the wifi but the strange thing is, it even stops me from going online on my xbox which is connected straight to the router by ethernet cable.

The effect is so immediate and obvious that I can be streaming netflix on my xbox, hear the tv get turned on in the other room, and instantly get disconnected from live or the video starts trying to buffer forever.

We don't actually use the internet function on the tv and the problem remains whether it is connected to our router or not.

The TV is approximately 5-7 metres away and a direct line from it to the router would go through a wall and a door.

Any help anyone could provide would be greatly appreciated.

Apologies in advance if I have posted this in the wrong section, I wasn't sure where to post it.

My network card is a Realtek PCIe FE Family Controller. I don't know what caused this problem but my Realtek driver is up-to-date, and previously it was a link speed of 100 Mbps.

But now for some reason it suddenly dropped to a link speed of 10 Mbps and I've tried a lot to no avail. As you can see on the left I've tried changing the speed/duplex setting but it remains at 10 Mbps no matter how many restarts, disables and re-enables and such.

And yes, I do have the internet speed to go beyond 10 Mbps:

This is a speedtest done on my desktop computer

And this one was done on my phone and this was wireless as well..

I'd rather not call Time Warner Cable. They'll send someone who's only going to end up wasting my time and reaching no solution. I'd like to avoid sitting with the person they send for a half hour and it having it end with them asking me if have I considered the innovative idea of reformatting my computer.

Thank you in advance for any help you can give me.

I recently purchased a NAS Drive which works ok. However I have also found out that my Sky Hub only supports <100Mbps.

The problems I have is when copying to the NAS drive I only get write speeds of around 10-12MBps which sounds about right being around 1/8 of the 100Mbps. Also when I stream I get a lot of buffering/cut out with any HD content streaming to my Xbox 360.

I just wanted to know if unplugging everything from the router and into a gigabit Ethernet switch then connecting that to the router will speed everything up? Or would I be better off going all out on a pricey router?

Basically am I right in thinking the switch will bypass the router for anything not using the internet?

I am trying to connect an ADSL modem to a 3Com Ethernet gateway (4 port router) and then to a 3com 8 port hub. I can connect the ADSL modem to the 3Com 8 port hub without any problems. The IP address is well recognized and working. When I try to connect the ADSL modem to the router first and then to the 8 port hub, the ADSL serve does not recognize the router's IP address as a valid one.

There is no info on to how to upgrade or modify the router settings at all from 3Com.

Thank you in advance for your assistance.

I recently got a new computer, and am trying to transfer all my old files off of the old one, but the transfer speed that I get seem very slow.

The computers are connected by a cat5 cable, with a router between them. Could the router be causing the problem?

Shouldn't the transfer speed be 100mbps?

I recently bought a Belkin 2m cat5e crossover cable to connect my desktop to my D530 laptop, in the hopes that it would be a faster way for me to directly transfer data between the two. The desktop's ethernet card is a Realtek PCIe FE Family Controller (model no. RTL8167), and the D530's is a Broadcom NetExtreme 57xx Gigabit Controller (model no. B57ND60X). Both seem to be gigabit-capable cards, yet I'm not able to get gigabit speeds from them; when looking at the connection, it shows 100Mbit/s, and the fastest speed that each of them can be set to in Device Manager -> Advanced -> Speed & Duplex is 100Mbit Full Duplex. Even worse, I'm not even getting those speeds when I transfer data - I'm getting a measly 1MB/s, so about 8Mbit/s, and even that is constantly dropping.

So far, I've tried updating uninstalling and then updating both drivers automatically via the Device Manager.

I then manually installed drivers, the Desktop's from here: Realtek RTL81XX PCI-E Network Connection Driver Driver Details | Dell UK, and the laptop's using DriverMax because I couldn't find a driver for it.

Still no luck, and I'm now at a loss for what to try. When I bought the crossover, I really didn't think it'd take this much to get it up and running, I suppose I was under the naive impression it'd be pretty much plug-and-play.

So we recently got a new router, only problem was it had only one ethernet port. So I went and bought a switch, and installed it. It worked just fine on all computers in the house, except mine...

I've tried using the same cable in another computer, and it worked without any problems. So I know the fault lies with my computer, but I just can't seem to find out what it is. The connection I'm supposed to be getting is 50/20 mbps, but I get like 1,5/1,5...

For the record, it was working just fine on the old router. Only difference is the switch inbetween, really.

A:Solved: Get huge speed drop on ethernet cable not on wireless!!!

There are a lot a variables. How is your cable made? Is it a store bought cable? Did you make it? Is it run or is it just laying on the floor run from router to PC? A little more info might help but ultimately it might come down to without being there to test the actual cable and NiC we won't be able to know for sure.

Recently upgraded to gigabit service at home office. 
Have a T430S
Hardwared through Thinkpad Mini Dock Plus Series 3 (433810U) (or without), CAT6, through a Router (or direct to fiber CAT6 connection, or through a number of other routers) can only achieve 400 Mbps at BEST.
However, Cox tech's Dell achieved 998, another Dell professional system of a family member, same result.
OS independent. Tried on Win7, Win 8.1 and Win 10. Latest drivers, BIOS on all systems. Tried different cables, etc. no change.
Go a hold of a friends T520 system (doing some upgrades) and tested it today. SAME THING.  400ish max.
Yet, the Dells have no issues. As well as a desktop Intel mother board system - 990's
What's the story on Lenovo Thinkpads and gigabit speeds?
T430S has an Intel 82570LM
T520 has an Intel 82579LM
I had service come in remotely (still under Lenovo warranty) and reloaded drives but made no difference.  He left ... waiting on resolution.
While gigabit service is not all that common yet, I'd think there would be others with T series systems and these NICs with similar complaints.
Just for fun, I ordered Ugreen USB3.0 SuperSpped WIred Gigabit LAN adapter/3 port USBhub and it has the same results.

Can you test the speed locally, like transferring a file from a computer to another? When you test using the internet as an end target, there are many other factors involved.

I am transferring some large files from my computer to the laptop but the transfer speed is very slow.
Im sure that when I do it on my sisters laptop its like 9-10mBps, almost max bandwidth all the time but with my laptop its very slow. About 1/5 of the maximum bandwidth i believe.
They are all running windows xp with SP2.

Is there anyway which can make transferring of files use most or all of the available bandwidth on the 100Mbps ethernet network?

Friends on my Compaq DC7600 with a typical Broadcom ethernet controller, running Windows 8 Enterprise RTM 32-bit, the network performance is unreliable. With my windows 7 hdd in and running its flawless. If I still a USB wireless device in and run it to the same access point as is hosting the cabled connection, it is fast/furious. Sometimes the network link via CAT5 will start off with a blaze but then quickly drop to a crawl inside of 1sec.
Anyone seen this?

On ordinary internet traffic, flipping through web pages, it seems "normal" but the halt/herky/jerky disease triggers on any long-download item [such as a speedtest or a file download]

clues? Should I replace the default windows 8-installed driver with something else?

Debating on going wireless or not: Have an Asus M4A87TD EVO that has RTL8111E PCIe Gigabit LAN controller featuring AI NET2. So Gigabit, Im thinking at least 100/1000. I am wire into my router which puts out high speed and low ping to wireless. Standard Ethernet cables supply the data pipeline, not sure what the transfer speed is on them, If anyone can let me know that would be great.
I have been eyeballing the super speed ethernet cables, but not sure if it would solve the ping issues I have with desktop, (being too high), and the cost for a 15' line.
Tried finding a wireless card that handles N+network and 5.0Ghz for my dual band.

1. What is the standard ethernet cable speed?
2. Can the standard ethernet cable from router to computer be causing high ping? (have second computer with 3' cable, same issue)
3. Would it be better to go wireless and forego the wired ethernet cable?
4. What wireless card would you recommend?

So dear colegues, does anybody have or had similar problem ? Cable is 5E. Other PC-s are already connected at 1GBs and transfer rate is around 100Mbs so everything is ok with the new switch (D-Link's GO-SW-5G) and cables. When W520 is docked ethernet port at the right side of  the w520 is turned off ? Cable disconnected, without any ligh blinking at both sides. Is it possible somehow to decide which ethernet connector is active or this is mechanically/electronically decided during docking which is realy bad.  BUT, if i undock W520 and use ethernet connector at the laptop, everything is normal, i mean, link is 1GBs and everything is fine as it should be. Intel 85279LM divers are the latest one downloaded from the Intel's site. Tried to fix the link speed to 1GBs but without any success. "Network cable unplugged." ?  Is it possible that dock ethernet is only 100 MBs ?!? All drivers are up to date. BIOS is the only thing that i didn't update and why should i when everything is working as expected. Of course dock is external component. Do You know for similar case so i should update the BIOS too ? Of course, laptop is out of warranty since the begining of this summer.  So all fingers (From different people. ) are pointed to that dock.

I recently purchased the Dell USB-C to VGA/HDMI/USB/Ethernet Adapter (Dell 470-ABQN) to use as a dock with my XPS 15 9550. Unfortunately while using this adapter the fans run at a very high speed, approximately 80%, and are therefore loud and disturbing during meetings and desk work. I have it connected to only an HDMI monitor and a USB mouse receiver. The fans also run constantly when using the built-in USB and HDMI ports, but at a tolerable level. I will have to return this item without a fix, so could someone at Dell please advise if there is a solution or if this is a known issue that will be reviewed? I have updated both the Thunderbolt firmware and software and applied all Windows Updates. Thanks
