I got this Samsung TV (QN85B Neo QLED 4K HDR Smart - QE75QN85BATXXU). Ran a test to check the speed:

1. 500 Mbps line to the main router. Ethernet cable connected from the main router to the TV - Speed test in the TV shows around 80Mbps.

2. Connected the Same ethernet cable to my laptop - laptop shows around 500Mbps.

Why the TV doesn't show 500Mbps? Is there a setting somewhere that needs changing?

The network card has a maximum speed of 100Mbps is the reason IMHO.

Are you getting any buffering on the TV? If not I wouldn't worry about it.

Tvs and laptops are completely different when it comes to networks. your TV will never receive 500mbps (in my experience and what I've heard.) so unless your TV is buffering, I would not worry.

Your TV needs max 45mb to be honest unless you watching 8k content.

It's taking what it needs. Your house could probably deliver 9000 volts to it (not literally), but the TV only takes what it needs.

If it's working fine, don't worry about it. There will be so many variables too, such as cable quality (ethernet), number of users on the network, time of day (in some cases) and router quality.

Also, I find that a lot of network tests aren't ready for 500+mbps, as they do a test download on a file, which isn't big enough for the download speed to catchup if that makes sense. By the time the speed hit's its 'max', the test or 'download' is complete.

 

I'm assuming you're talking about download of course, but the same would apply to uploads too, although those speeds tend to generally be slower and not advertised by ISP's on the marketing.

Thank you, everyone. As @Pugs1957 mentioned the network card limitation causing this.

Yes, you might not need it unless you have NFL Sunday ticket and watching 4 games on screen gets slow and there is buffering. but keep in mind that with LG and Sony I'm able to get 285 to 299. Fios offers 1000 speed, so Samsung needs to get a better cards if they want to keep selling smart tv\.
