    another note, the router's LED's indicated a connection @1gbps, windows still reports 100 mbps however.

    Uninstall it in Device Manager and reboot immediately after.

    If upon rebooting Windows should ask for drivers point it to where you have unpacked the files you D/L'd from Broadcom.

    Keep us posted.
    #1 - Please, when seeking help, enter the make and model of ALL parts that your system is comprised of in your Signature, or at least the model #'s in your System Specs, then "Save' it.
    ____If you are overclocking, underclocking, or undervolting any parts, informing us of this and their values would prove beneficial in helping you.

    #3 - Please use the eXtreme Outer Vision Power Supply Calculator found HERE to determine if it might be your PSU at issue.
    ____Consider your PSU to be the foundation from which all else is built upon. Anything built upon a weak foundation is poorly built.

    Check the LEDs on the network port on the I/O panel of the board, which should react like this to the incoming signal:

    Orange is 100Mbps, Green is 1Gbps.

    Any chance you're using a different cable, or do you have another cable to try? Double check those connections too.

    I had no problem when I used the XFast Lan software, but you can uninstall it for a test, it's not necessary.

    Did you try any of the troubleshooting options in Windows for network connections? They are on the same screen as the speed display.

    Did you check the configuration of the Properties of the Broadcom NIC, such as the Link speed? I'm using a separate NIC card, but besides the Auto negotiate setting, I can select the speed specifically.

    Currently orange on the box, I will try another cable.

    I uninstalled xFast Lan program, and rebooted.

    The orange LED would indicate that is the speed coming into the network port, or you would assume that it is.
