I have a mixture of fast ethernet (100Mbs) devices and gigabit devices. Despite that the PC is gigabit ethernet enabled, it syncs at 100Mbs only. However, my PC is syncing at gigabit ethernet speeds. Why? The router is a Netgear 3500WL. All cabling is gigabit ethernet capable cat 5E cable.
Correct me if I am wrong, the PC syncs at the slowest speed so it will sync at 100Mbs but communication between any two gigabit ethernet devices will take place at full speed? If so why does the PC in my room sync at gigabit speeds?
