Am I correct in saying the Ethernet port on the Q70R is only Fast Ethernet (up to 100Mbps) and not Gigabit (up to 1Gbps)? I've done extensive searching but I can't seem to find anything more than speculation and discussions hinting that all the Samsung TVs only have 100Mbps ports? For anything faster that that one would need to use WiFi?

 

Why then in the eManual does it specify that CAT 7 STP Ethernet cables be used? This is just a total waste of money when CAT 5E will do the same job?

i would have to agree that it is only a 10/100 ethernet card. in plex, my streams never go above 100mbps and i notice it buffers. connected just now to wifi and i see usage going above 150mbps..

 

very sad that samsung puts a 10/100 ethernet port in a 4K HDR tv when video streams can go over 100mbps easily w/4K HDR and transcoding.  the wifi adapter does seem pretty solid as a side note though.  yup. just saw a spike to 189mbps on wifi so def feel its fast ethernet and NOT gigabit.

That is what I will try to do the coming week - try to connect a USB dongle with 1 Gbps ethernet. 
I have a QE65Q900R 8k TV, also with a 100 Mbps ethernet in the OneConnect box. Ridiculous :smiling-face: 

 

Any results to share?

Just tried with a USB3 gigabit adapter and it refuses to see it. only options I have through my TV at least are Wired and Wireless!
Quite annoying to see that one 100mbit link on my edge switch

While that appears, apparently on android eleven for pixel os, there's an choice within the strength menu that pops up and also you acquire cats via various treats with this article. Like the old android easter egg (Android eight??)
