Setting up a netgear n600 (WNDR3700) in my home. I have tried connecting two PCs to the LAN and am only getting 100mb/s with most of my patch cables(all are cat5e). I was only able to achieve 1Gb/s with 1 of my cables(which is actually a few feet to short for my shortest run). Both PCs have gigabit capability.
Is this a common issue? What are the chances that 5 out of 6 cat5e cables are bad? Am I missing something?
