Yes this can happen if auto-neg fails.

If your router supports 1000Mb, it might be an idea to force it to that.

hmm quite a rare thing to happen.

would have been one of the last things on my list to check, if i'd even thought it up! did you just stumble across it in the network settings and the 10mbit jumped out at you?

In a similar vein, it reminds me of the time I set my network cards in my PCs to their maximum speeds (from auto negotiate) and that resulted in much slower speeds that the auto-neg option.

For clarity, could you maybe send an email into our support desk so we know who you are but also so we record this against your customer notes.

Just for those coming from a google link and now maybe seeing the message that Aquiss is slow, please do view http://forums.thinkbroadband.com/fibre/t/3998577-re-...

I had this happen with Windows 7 on a new PC - it was first visible from the slow transfer speeds on the LAN, but immediately visible if I looked at the colour of the LEDs on the Netgear switch (not router).

That was newish hardware - gigabit switch, and gigabit motherboard interface.

I couldn't make any change that would allow negotiation to work - either in the configuration in Windows, or by changing drivers.

In the end, it fixed itself of its own accord. I'd given up on making changes when it started working, so I've no idea why!

They rarely do that sort of thing, but if you had registered then you could have changed it yourself up to 12 hours after starting it. And seen a lot fewer adverts as well smile.

The place to ask for the change would be in the Talk To The Staff (TTTS) forum, or perhaps even better an email to team@thinkbroadband.com. (And don't shout smile). I doubt if it would work though.

Best to let this thread die and disappear, and if you want to continue the discussion register and start a new one smile. Maybe a final post here with a link to the new one.
