Hi I have a Asus motherboard P8Z77-V LX, which according to the spec tge LAN supports speeds up to 1000 mps http://www.conrad.com/ce/en/product/874547/Mainboard-Asus-P8Z77-V-LX-PC-base-Intel-1155-Form-factor-ATX?ref=list
I live in the UK and virgin media have upgraded my 100 meg internet to 152, I can't get speeds beyond 65 meg. I contacted there tech support, and they remotely checked my PC and told me my LAN only goes up to 100 MPs and I would need a new lan adapter.
There screens of my control panel what the virgin media tech was checking.
I have a virgin media super hub version one directly wired to the desktop, it also has a ps3 wired and virgin TiVo box.
Any advise or help would be appreciated.

First, see if changing the Ethernet cable helps. Your motherboard, according the to specs has a Realek 8111E chipset which is Gigabit capable. The tech should have see that from your two images. Realet GBE mean Gigabit.


If a new cable does not work, then try updating the driver here depending on your OS. Create a Restore Point before updating the driver.
