I’ve recently purchased the new HeroBox and it is surprisingly snappy. However, I’ve had difficulty with both wired and wireless networking running very slow. No matter what I’ve tried the network adapter is limited to 100Mb instead of 1000Mb and I have very poor wireless throughput on both 2.4 and 5Ghz networks. Wired I’ve tried a number of cables, switches, hubs and routers, all cat6 cables and 1Gb - 10Gb network gear with no effect. Wireless I max out at about 60Mbps 1 foot from the router while my cell phone will get 900Mbps.
I have tried different drivers, different bios settings, and a clean installation of Windows with no effect. While the experience of using the box is otherwise great, the slow networking is a deal breaker for my use case. Before I initiated a return is there something else I could try, or is this device really limited to 100Mb ethernet due to some hardware issue?
