EVGA x58 integrated NIC only getting 100Mbps?

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
The integrated NIC for this board is supposed to be capable of 1000Mbps. I'm hooked up to a D-Link DGL-4500, which is 1Gbps capable. I have other PCs on my network connected at 1Gbps, but this EVGA X58 PC is only connected at 100Mbps.

What could be causing this? Any ideas?

Cat5 cable or Cat6?

Just hard set it to 1000/full duplex, auto negotiation mismatch. Also Cat5 e is 1Gb rated

Honestly, I'm not sure. There's no text printed on the cable itself. It has 8 wires and I crimped it myself. It only hits 100Mbps. Did I crimp it wrong maybe?

I just tried a different cable (one I didn't crimp myself). It says "Cat5e patch cable" and it gets me 1.0Gbps, so it must be the first cable I was using. What wire setup should I be using, and would that affect the speed?

Have you tried updating your NIC drivers/bios? http://www.evga.com/support/drivers/
Have you tried setting your NIC speed manually to 1.0gbps?

I went to the advanced tab of my NIC properties and set "Speed & Duplex" from "Auto Negotiation" to "1.0Gbps Full Duplex" and it still registered as 100Mbps (on the first cable). Note that on the 2nd cable I mentioned, I get 1.0Gbps on "Auto Negotiation". I'm pretty sure it's the cable, but I want to assume that I simply crimped the RJ45's on wrong. What wire guide should I use?

You should be using cat5e or higher, cat5 is only ated for 100mbps, also a cat5e crimped poorly can lead to slower negotiations, not implying you crimped it poorly

This guy beat me to the punch. Cat5e/Cat6 was meant for 1000Mbps.

How do I know if the cable is Cat5 or Cat5e if there is no text printed on it? Just in case my crimp is bad, what exact wire order should I be using? A graphical guide would be ideal. I'm assuming I have wires placed in the wrong slots of the RJ45 plug.

From what I know, it seems like they use the same amount of cables, just in a different configuration.
