Health Check Codes: W008 (W008)

More of a curiosity than a problem - is there a full listing of the Health Check Codes and their meanings? A link would be awesome, thanks!

Health check code: W008

    It would be nice to have a full list of codes and possible steps to a resolution for each.

    In this case you need to verify you have CAT 5e or better cabling from the Fingbox to the device it's connected to and said device supports gigabit.

    Thanks Rooted,
    Apparently I'll be hitting the after holiday sales to pick up one that supports gigabit, as mine clearly does not.  
    You are connected, but check the warnings - 25 checks completed. Health check code: W008

    When FING advises you of a "Warning" that the "local ethernet link speed is not optimal Speed is less than Gigabit: 100.0 Mbps"
    Does this mean there is a way to correct or change this?  I would love to get more than 100.0 Mbps, but to my knowledge this is a limitation set by the NIC & Driver.
    Connectivity - Fing 0.6.4
    You are connected, but check the warnings

    Unless you have upgraded your PC, according to the specs for that older Presario Desktop you have a 10/100 network card. Is your PC old?

    Also your Netgear N300 has 10/100 Ethernet.

    You will need to upgrade both to get 10/100/1000 (Gigabit) network speeds. You can get an inexpensive PCI network adapter and install it in your PC but you will need a new router to obtain gigabit.

    The log you posted contains your public IP address, I wouldn't share this as it opens you up to potential exploitation.

    I hope you have a great New Year as well.

    Hello to all here in our Fing Community

    I am so glad that your application has found an issue concerning the connectivity of my system, or shedding light on this matter, it is an issue with the configuration of my laptop and it has been bothering me, I believe for just over a year or coming too a year and just the other day, I believe I created a picture of the issue.

    My laptop beginnings as a CORE i7 Windows 7, which I upgraded to Win10 when the Windows Insiders was introduced to the public as I remember and if I am right in remembering, I believe I have since reinstalled Win10 by disk because I place a SSHD inside.
    While making those changes, I found out that I only had one HHD when this laptop is able to contain two HHDs.
    So I now have a 2TB device, one SSHD, the other HHD.
    I also upped my RAM from 8GB to 16GB.

    I have done this because I am currently studying computing at an HNC/D Level wanting to attain my first degree, with the understanding that having ample space and speed is essential to offer my work to a degree of having several options to work with just in this laptop. 
    I do have a few which needs upgrading.

    Then all of a sudden, I lost being able to connect by WiFi anywhere.
    While learning this, I found out that my mobile device can act as a go-between the WiFi Access, having a WiFi connected to the device and connects my phone by USB and get a connection this way other than being wired.

    I asked my device manufacturer, who told me that my device network card is now not compatible with new features being introduced and furthermore, they no longer support such an aged device.
    I asked about it by Microsoft Answers Community and also Intel.
    No one has been able to direct any form of help, so I have tried eBay and purchased a network card, which hasn't made any difference.
    I have tried to purchase another card, which should be an upgrade, but it has not arrived and if I do get it and it works, I will or should let you all know.

    In the meantime, your service has seemed to be the only one who has pinpointed that there is an issue.

    Noticeable changed features are: I have lost in the Windows Settings Dialogue Box of the Network and Internet Section of the Status the show of WiFi and I don't know how I can get it back.

    Just this week I installed 10Bit Advanced SystemCare and Driver Boost 8.
    It seemed that the Driver Boost found something and they claimed to have fixed it, but it hasn't, (which I have to talk to them about it), but I was able to create the picture that I mentioned earlier.

    Well, after explaining all of that, am going to add this picture and I hope that it will be helpful to anyone who come across this problem, but I would like to get some ideas myself to fix this problem.

    What I don't understand is that I upgraded a WinXP to Win10 and I have no problem with the WiFi. 
    I also have a newer version of the same model that is a Win7 which don't have this problem, the only problem I have with them is heat and the XP, is much slower and I can't upgrade it any further. 
    Those devices are Toshiba's, the one am having WiFi issues with is a Dell XPS 17 L702X, which has quite frankly shocked me.

    Anyway, here is that pic:
