My network card appears to have two Ethernet ports. I'm trying to work out the theoretical maximum speed of those Ethernet ports - specifically if they are Gigabit (1000Mbit/s) ports or plain old 100Mbit/s.
I've tried a couple of different things:
- Device Manager shows me having Realtek PCI GBE Family Controller drivers. Does the GBE stand for Gigabit?
- The controller properties shows both ports are 1.0 Gbps capable.
- I've used WMIC to get the speed in bits. Which is 100000000 bits, so 100 Mb.
- Finally I've checked the Ethernet status. Which is where my confusion lies as this says 100Mbps. Is this because I only have a Cat5 Ethernet cable plugged in, or is this the real speed.
How can I determine the speed of my Ethernet ports?
