My computer reciently bit the dust. So I rebuilt it (we can make it better, stronger, faster) for a hell of a lot less!
My new setup features a 1 gb nvdia video card, AMD Phenom II 965 Black Edition CPU, monster heat fan, ASUS MB that supports 16gb DDR3 ram, 2 SATA @ 6gb, along with all the other overclocking goodies. New 1TB Black Edition HD with 32mb flash onboard.
Now here's the issue. I've got a Netgear dual band DSL gigabit router/modem, the modem on my MB is a 10/100/1000. I've got Verizon High Speed DSL ( I know get the cable modem!!) But my DL speed is around 1.3 upload is slower, but since I do very little uploading it's not an issue.
The modem wont connect any higher than 100 duplex. I've tried switching out the settings on the card to Auto-Negotiate as well as straight 1000. The cable I'm using is Cat 6e and the Netgear router is about 2 feet from my computer.
Any ideas on how to connect any faster?
