    Realtek Ethernet Limited 10mbps

    I used a wireless connection for a couple years. I moved and now I want to use a wired connection. I am not able to connect to the internet at all with the newest(2015) Realtek driver. The only way I can get a wired connection is by rolling back the driver to previous(2013) version and change speed and duplex to 10mbps. I would like to get internet without bottlenecking myself.

    I plugged the 25ft cat6 into my roommate's computer and successfully connected @ 100mbps.

    Observation: When my roommates computer successfully connected, it displayed the custom network name that I set. When using the 10mbps on my computer, the network name is generic Linksys578

    Any help is appreciated
    My system: HP ENVY dv7 Notebook PC
    My Router: Linksys e1200 v2
    My Adapter: Realtek PCIe GBE Family Controller RTL8168
    OS: Windows 8.1 64bit
