    Anybody having issues getting it to connect at full speeds ? Even using device manager and setting the Speed / Duplex it wants to connect at 100Mbps

    Just to check:-

    - The device your connecting to supports 1Gbps?
    - The cable your using is Cat5e or Cat6?

    Could it be a driver issue? Have you ever used the USB Ethernet adapter? If so, I'd undock the SP3, remove the driver, the redock the SP3 and let it re-install it. Maybe that will take care of it.

    Strange, but after reading many issues/fixes, I'm seeing that that is a common fix for dock related issues.
