Hello All,

 

I have a Realtek PCIe Family Controller and would appreciate assistance in finding out the following,

Is this a Gigabit adapter,

What download speeds in MegaBytes can it handle.

I am trying to decide which broadband package to subscribe to as my provider ( cable service ) offers up to 240 MegaByte download speeds.

 

Thanks

Probably easiest to download Speccy and publish a snapshot using these instructions.  Include the link to the snapshot in your next post.  This shows details of your hardware so we can look up the motherboard or network card details.

Thanks for that.  Is that a Lenovo H30-00?  Lenovo's site is not very helpful with precise product specifications...  I've been through the product page and both the user manual and the technical service manual, to no avail.  Is it really that difficult for them to list what features their products have?!?

 

Anyway, most third party websites list the model as having a Fast Ethernet 10/100 adapter.  Example.  The Realtek "FE Series" driver that Speccy shows is for 10/100 speed ethernet chipsets too, so I'd say with 95-99% confidence it's a 100 megabit capable interface and not gigabit.

 

With internet connections faster is always good, but I'd say the really fast 100mbit+ services are really only going to come into their own when you have multiple devices connected.

Hi jonuk76,

Thanks for all the help.

I found the same with Lenovos information / support. It seriously lacks clarity.

I'll settle for the 100 megabit capability. Its more than fast enough for my needs and I'm currently getting approx 93 down and 24 up through my cable provider who offers a package up to 120 and another up to 240.

Opting for the 120 is less expensive than the 240 and so is a better option given the adapter's capabilities.

Again my thanks.
