However, if you were getting Gigabit using a particular setup and suddenly, with no changes whatsoever, your link speed is now Mbps, then it’s probably only one cable that is now having issues, and it is likely one that is exposed. Before troubleshooting any further, check the connection of the Ethernet cable into every piece of networking equipment, as well as your computer. If this is set correctly and your link speed still reads as Mbps, then the issue could be a few things, although it is important to note up front that this is almost always an issue with an Ethernet cable. Using this method of troubleshooting can be a pain if you are not dealing with a laptop, but it might still be worth doing if you have to decide if you need to call a contractor out to look at wiring behind your walls.
