Also, when was the last time you upgraded your network's modem, router, and other hardware? Have you also updated your computer's drivers lately? A great program suite to use to keep your computers up to date is Auslogics' Driver Updater, Boostspeed, and Disk Defrag. (There are some eCoupons that will work with defraying the cost, too.)

Cheers!

What kind of cable are you running, if it's not CAT6 you are being limited by the ethernet cable. Even though let's say you are running CAT5e, most NICs and Routers still limit them to 100, when technically they can go 1000.

I'd say one of the following
  • You're not actually signed up for 1Gbps speed
  • The modem doesn't support that speed
  • The cabling as @Grimreaper1979a suggested is not Cat 6
  • You're trying to connect wirelessly. Even newer MIMO AC routers won't hit 1Gbps or you're using an older wireless router
  • Mismatched duplex and/or speed settings on your nic

THANKS FOR YOUR HELP, SO I NARROWED IT DOWN TO EITHER THE CAT 6 CABLE CAUSE IM USING A CAT5 E OR MISMATCHED DUPLEX AND OR SPEED SETTINGS ON THE NIC. I WILL TRY THE CAT 6 BUT FUNNY YOU MENTION THE NIC CAUSE I TRIED TO GO IN AND MESS W/ IT. THE OPTION TO SWITCH TO 1GB WAS THERE BUT WHEN I DID SPEED TEST NO CHANGE ONLY WORST SO I TINKERED WITH THE AUTO DISABLE GIGABYTE CAUSE I WAS CURIOS TO PUT FROM THAT OPTION TO THERE WAS A RELINK BATTERY OPTION BUT TO NO AVAIL. SOME ONE ELSE SAYS ITS JUST THE CABLE, I WILL KEEP YOU POSTED AND PUT THOSE SETTINGS BACK TO DISABLE GIG AND TO NEGOTIATE WITH USING THE CAT 6 FIRST THEN WE WILL SEE.

THANKS FOR YOUR REPY AND TIME FOR THE HELP FIRST OFF, I HOPE YOU ARE RIGHT AND I WILL BUY THE CAT6 BUT WOULDNT THE TEC WHO INSTALLED THE 1GBPS SERVICE KNOW THAT?
 
The internet was too slow in me and it was the old modem, they changed the modem, it was fine, if you wouldn't update the modem it would change.

I think this might be a problem with your Internet provider and you bought the wrong Internet coverage, in most of the cases this is how you can solve this issue, just change the provider

To continue, I know what are you talking about. Listen to my story and you will understand that you are not alone in this cruel world. Some time ago, my father tried to get himself an internet coverage for his house, my Mom passed some years ago and my old man started to feel alone and that's why he started to search something on the internet to entertain himself. As far as I know he got something like " THE BEST INTERNET COVERAGE PACKAGE" as his provider says. He had nearly 100 mbps for nearly 60 pounds per month. This is insane and I was really pissed off because those morons were making money on a poor old man. Of course I have a lot to deal with them and I won the case, and got my compensation too. But the problem remains. My old man wanted to have internet connection and I started to search, and because I could not trust anymore, I was looking for some kind of guide that would help me to find something really good at a reasonable price and that's what I have found I used this service and I was able to find a really good offer for my old man, he got even a discount because he is a cute old man. SO if you will be looking for a good internet provider, now you know where you need to seek for it
