    Hello @Vladicha, I have moved your post to the appropriate section.

    Are you seeing a message stating this or are you having slow speeds?

    It means your wired connection is less than gigabit, if you don't have gigabit Ethernet on both ends you can simply ignore it. If you do have gigabit on the PC and router you need to upgrade your cable to CAT5e or higher.

    I ran into a similar problem with my Fing box. It turned out to be the cable supplied with it that was the problem. Once I replaced it, the connection went from 100M to 1G between the switch and the Fing box. Now my network speed tests look much better. (I have a 1G fiber connection)
