10 Mbps instead of 100 Mbps

Guest

Hi,
We recently moved my home office which meant me trying to set up my (wired)
network again. Before I moved I got 100 Mbps and now I can only get 10. I do
video production which at times means moving 10 or more GB over the network
so I'd REALLY like to get that 100 Mbps back. The only thing I can think of
that I'm doing differently is that I'm not using the router I had (because
for the time being I'm on dial-up as opposed to wireless which I had at the
old house) and running two PCs into a 4 port Netgear ethernet hub. Any
thoughts?
Thanks in advance very much,
Randy

Most hubs are limited to 10mbps speed. Replace it with a switch or router
that supports 100mbps.

That was SO much easier than I expected Richard, I simply hooked up the
router instead of the hub and automatically started getting 100 Mbps. Thanks
so much!
