Why is my modem throttling my speed? ?

As you can see my link speed is only 10mbps when connected by Ethernet. I get faster speeds if I unplug my Ethernet cord and go wirelesss. Why is this happening? Telstra smart gen 2

    Try removing and replugging in the ethernet cable, make sure you don't have any power adapters directly overlying the cable, if necessary replace the cable with Cat5 or Cat6 rated

      Yeah I’ve tried replugging it into different ports at the back etc. no good, I guess I’ll have to try a new cord

    The most likely cause would be a damaged Ethernet cable, preventing it from autonegotiating a higher speed with the Xbox.
