I ordered gig speed from comcast, but cant get the pc to run it.  Router and Modem are both gig and comcast tested with their XMT and speed is gig from the modem.
So I went down to Microcenter and got another nic, but it wont install.  I AM getting the right upload speed, ~40mbps.  But the download wont make it past 200 or 300.
Any assistance is appreciated.
Thank you,
