DroixS905X3 gig ethernet not only connecting at 100meg


Just bought a DroixS905X3 box and have the device treesm1_s905x3_4g working fine, except its only connecting at 100meg. As I have a 900meg internet connection I really wanted it to connect at gig speed. I have it connected direct to my routers gig port…
When looking at the device trees there is a sm1_s905x3_4g_1gbit but that just wont boot at all. Is there anything I can do? I can connect to wifi but only on 2.4GHz so 144Mbps

What is the result of a speed test in Android … 100 or 1,000 Mb/s?

Not done a test but when in Android it was connecting (or said it was connecting)at 1GB- I assume you mean a speed test not in Coreelec but in the Android OS?

try as @JohnBoyz said already if you have gigabit in Android. like the description on Amazon says it have only 100MBit, not gigabit. if it have gigabit in Android boot into CE and post a dmesg log by:
dmesg | paste

Will give it a go later - BTW, the site I bought it from says its 1Gb, see the screenshotbox

DroiX X3 have only 100MBit

Bad copy paste then…

Have emailed them to see what they say - mightily dissapointed as I only bought it as my last box only has 10/100-would be as well to send it back to them!

Spec on their page also says gig@
Ethernet 10/100/1000M Ethernet Adapter (RJ45)

But You get only 100MBit.
Just another POC from china

Could you use a usb3 to gigabit Ethernet adapter. Only €8.00


Good point! I have one of them lying about! And you are all correct, had it confirmed that its only 100meg, apparently they are in the process of updating the specs on the website…

Works a treat!
