Running windows7 pro on a network with 7 other computers, the following is a list of what is installed


1.  Each computer has a 10/100/1000 ethernet card


2.  all computers are hooked up with a CAT 6 cable


3.  Router is a CISCO 10/100/1000 wireless


4.  10/100/1000 SWITCH


5.  Motorola DCP 3010 Modem  1 gig capable


OK the problem is that 3 of these computers are only getting 100 Mbps.


Question is: What am I missing, all drivers are up to date. Checked all connections,
