Hi I'm using proxmox to run nextcloud on my homeserver. All's setup and running as needed.
I realized that my up- and downloads are slow and limited to 100Mbit/s; eventhough I've a gigabit standart NIC and Router.
Would b very cool if someone could tell me how I edit the interface to 1000Mbit's ??

root@server:~# ethtool enp9s0

By Switch, do you mean the Router the NIC is connected at ?
The Rj45 ports are all gigabit ports and router settings are also not the reason (other devices connected to it work just fine).

I've also a VM running Win10Pro and it's also limited @100.
The container setup of nextcloud that I'm running is already configured to 1000 in its own settings menu.
ok got it - but how do I change the interface settings so that the transferrate is set to 1000 from 100. As you can see from my first post when "ethtool" my NIC it is set to 100.
