Your network card speed is probably set to auto-negotiate and if the network switch you are connected to is a slower switch/hub than your NIC then that's your bottleneck - it will default to the slower speed.

Verify that you have the correct settings on the NIC card: https://www.cozlink.com/pice-a272-2387-2388/article-73447.html then also make sure you are using the correct NIC and switch/hub for expected maximum speed.  (e.g. use gigabit NIC connected to a gigabit switch to expect a gigabit connection).

Hi

So that's my case...

then also make sure you are using the correct NIC and switch/hub for expected maximum speed.  (e.g. use gigabit NIC connected to a gigabit switch to expect a gigabit connection).

How to check this?

I would leave the settings of the NIC to auto negotiate the speed.

From the look of the picture you provided it seems as that 100Mbps is your maximum speed.  Ensure that you have the correct NIC drivers installed.

You can do a Google search of your switch and verify the NIC (go back into the control panel > device manager) make and model and see the specification of these items.

Unfortunately that's not enough information.  We know it's an Nvidio nForce NIC.  What is your laptop model?

According to the AIDA report you are using a Foxconn M61PMV Series motherboard which may have one of the following onboard NIC.  2 out of the 3 models stated are 100Mbps NIC which matches the speed you posted.

Unless if you installed another NIC (GeForce) then you may be using the wrong driver.

Well

The aida report reflects the actual hardware, no changes was made. So  the  conclusion about speed is valid.

Wayne88Commented:
If the Aida report is correct then you are using realtek or broadcom NIC or it may be geForce but in any case, the report didn't give specific information on the type of the NIC so I cannot find the exact specification for it.

To answer your original question, you are already using the maximum speed of your NIC.  Your NIC is a 100mbps card not a gigabit because that's the maximum full duplex speed available.
