My Fing box has historically connected at 1gig to my router.  I have had my Fing unit since it’s release.  Lately the unit connects at GIG but at some point drops down to 100MB.  Causing issues.  Why is this happening?

    hi @ericgsacto
    Thanks for joining us.
    It could be ethernet cable. We'll need to confirm the ethernet cable is not broken. 
    As you restart the Fingbox, it forces the network to reach its full speed but if there is any damage on the cable, the speed will drop.
    Can you perform this and let me know the result?

    Hi. I replaced the cable with a new one and sure enough it’s staying at a gig connection.  So it appears the flat cable that came with it has some how been damaged.  Strange...the flat cable and box haven’t been touched or moved since initial installation.  Glad it’s resolved though.   Thank you!
