What is the model of your modem?

I don't need to be right, but I am never wrong.

mmm That's a good question; as simply googling for n600 router brings up assorted brands... Netgear and TP-link being two of them...

One thing you need to be aware of with broadband speeds are the words "up to". You will never reach 100% of the advertised speed, there will always be some loss. You need to look at several factors - the speed you're paying for from the ISP, the capability of the modem, & the capability or the router.

- What internet speed are you paying for?

- How is your modem telling you the router isn't capable of "pulling" 100 Mbps? Does it have some sort of digital read-out? What speed ethernet ports are on the modem & router? If one of them is 100 Mbps rather than 1000 Mbps (Gigabit), the slower port will dictate the overall speed.

- N600 is the wireless speed, which is dual band, probably 300 Mbps per band. Since you can only connect to one band at a time, the max possible wireless connection speed is "up to" 300 Mbps. But if it's only being fed by a 100 Mbps ethernet port, the max will be "up to" 100 Mbps.
