Hi,

 

I have my NL40 micro server connected to a 1GB 5 port network switch..

 

when i check the network speed on my Windows 2012 server - its shows as 100MB and not 1GB.

 

I have checked the adapter settings and there is no setting to force it to 1GB..

 

Any one got any idea's?

Is the server connected directly to the switch, or is it a situation where you have a wall jack at one or both ends, with a patch cable connecting the server to the wall jack and perhaps another connecting the switch to a wall jack?

For one thing, you can rule out the server. This is either a bad cable or a bad port on the switch.

 

Yes, maybe a bad cable or a bad switch. My experience with the MicroServer has been pretty good http://homeservershow.com/forums/index.php?/topic/3656-network-performance-microserver-to-ex-487/#entry45835

I had a situation in my new house where the CAT5E wiring that was pulled for network was stretched. It connected at 100Mbps only.

 

Try different ports and cables. Eliminate house wiring if possible.

I forgot to mention in my previous that, if you are using wall jacks (or as HSS-Dave says it better, house wiring), you should try connecting the server directly to the switch with a known good Ethernet cable.
