    I have the same warning. What I have been able to determine so far is this. My PC has a Gigabit Ethernet connection, the Gateway box from my ISP is only rated 10/100 Megabits. Therefore error message is correct, my NIC is faster than what I am connected to. I am sure if I purchased a Gigabit ethernet router that the error message would go away. I would not worry about it unless you are connected to a fiber circuit operating at 1Gps otherwise it really does not affect performance.

    I am getting this warning too. As far as I can tell all of my ethernet cables/switches are 1Gb - the question is, how do I find the possible weak link? Can I ping various devices on the network or something? Thanks!

    It may be due to the port on which the device is connected or the ethernet cable is damaged. You can try to change the port and cable as well to isolate the issue. Thanks
