I recently dropped my Optik TV service and upgraded my internet from Telus 75 to 150/150. I hardwired to the TV and did a speed test. At very best, I got 97Mbps downloads. Swap out the ethernet cable and tired again with the speed test. Received the same results, 96-97Mbps. Disconnected the ethernet cable and went wireless. Download & upload speeds were 150 Mbps plus. Tried ethernet cable again, speed below 100 Mbps. Tried a 3rd cable in a different wall port, same results. Went back to wireless, speeds are were they should be.
What is going on here? I thought wired should be at least as fast as wireless and more stable. Now before someone just answers "use the wireless and forget the wired". I don't care much for mysteries. Gateway/router is a T3200M with fibre to the router but copper to the wall port(s). Would copper coaxial be that restrictive? Oh, I also tried a different LAN port on the router as well.

What does this mean? You did a speed test from your TV?
Some TV's (Sony for example) only have a 100 MBps ethernet port but support higher WiFi connection speed.
