    I answered earlier that my driver/options do not either.

    What did you see when you did the above?

    I assume, that when you connect a Gigabit nic to another Gigabit nic (BCM 57781 to Realtec 8111DL), you get a Gigabit file transfer.
    I only get a 100 Mbps file transfer (11.5 MB/s).
    The Realtec 8111DL settings, gives me a 1 Gbps option, but the BCM 57781 does not.
    I just don't understand how the cards and PCs are being connected, when no switch is involved, and a single network input on the Z77 EX 6.

    The "other" PC with the 8111DL remains a mystery...

    For several years, I've been using a cat6 crossover network cable to directly connect both of my legacy systems using the onboard Realtek RJ-45 ports. This works fine for a simple point to point connection between two computes and it's faster and more reliable than using two cans connected by a string.
    Obviously I use wireless network adapters to connect each system to the internet.

    I disagree, string is a very underrated transmission medium, it's the type of can used that makes all the difference. Unfortunately, the can standards war caused the adoption of string to fail...

    I know about and even have a crossover cable or two, not that they are even needed much anymore. That is not the "how" in my question.

    One of the OP's PCs (with the 8111DL chip/NIC) must have dual Ethernet jacks, for an Ethernet signal to come into the PC that passes it on to another. Don't tell me we're talking wireless here...

    Consider they might not even be connected to the internet via this wired connection. Just two in-home connected via crossover cable PC's. With them typing these msgs out on a third PC.

    I am NOT talking about internet !!
    I just connect the two nic's in two pc's with a utp cable nothing more.
    Then i send a file from one pc to the other, using a homegroup connection.
    When i do that, i only get 100 Mbps transfer speed.
    Is that so difficult to understand ?

    No it's not, now that you've finally explained it.

    Ok, but now the solution for my problem.
    Why do i only get 100 Mbps, and not 1 Gbps.
