    Ok so since i switched over from win10 i couldn't get 140Mbit/s internet connection as per contract and once i started messing arround i found this:

    sudo lshw -C Network
    [sudo] password for home:
    *-network

    product: RTL8111/8168/8411 PCI Express Gigabit Ethernet Controller

    ip=192.168.100.17 latency=0 link=yes multicast=yes port=MII
    Nox Showbox Mobdro

    speed=100Mbit/s
    resources: irq:31 ioport:d000(size=256) memory:fe800000-fe800fff
    memory:d0000000-d0003fff
    and i tried to manually switch it to 1Gbit/s with

    sudo ethtool -s enp3s0 speed 1000 duplex full autoneg on
    and i just lose connection untill i run the command again with speed 100. I used the same cable and lan card on win10 and had the full 140Mbit/s connection, how come it is not working now.

    And also what is the difference between enp3s0 and eth0, almost every site i searched only mentions eth0 and very rarely enp3s0.

    Edit: this is the real lshw after the ethtool command ignore the one above
