I have an Ethernet card Adapter that supports 100/1000/4000 Mbps
modes but, It selects the lowest one what can I do to get the highest???

Hi,

How fast is the device on the other end of the cable?
Is the cable you are using designed for 4000 Mbps?

Sounds interesting, what card is this exactly?

If the cable modem is directly connected to your computer, anything above 100 Mbps is just a waste of ressources.

Its a a Netgear PCI adapter not sure exactly what model # the most expensive one.
GA311 (http://www.netgear.com/Products/Adapters/WiredAdapters/GA311.aspx)?
I suspect, the 4000 Mbps is some marketing b*llsh’t from the dealer you bought your card from.

It has autselect/detect mode.

I was reading on my Cable internet provider that it does support up to 4000 mbps speeds however, you will need a Cable modem w/ High Capacity PowerBoost speed. Only if you are a bundled customer you get it FREE.

What do you think?
