Linksys N600 Wifi Router doesn’t do Gigabit with Apple Thunderbolt to Ethernet Adapter

I’m filing this under the “Things that suck” category.

My two mac’s when connected directly to each other using a Cat 5e ethernet cable connect at 1 gigabit/second.

Take the same cable and plug it directly into a Linksys N600 which is supposed to support Gigabit ethernet, and it’s stuck at 100 megabits per second.

Used the ethernet cable bundled with the router as well as my own Cat5e cable and no luck.

Guess I’ll buy Netgear from now on.
