How to tell if the ethernet connection is trained at gigabit?
How can I tell if the ethernet connection to my modem is gigabit or if it downtrained to something slower?
When I direct connect a laptop to my cable modem, I get download speeds in the 140-150 Mbps, but through my Eero that drops to 60-80. I'm wondering if I am only getting 100Mbps ethernet to the modem, but can't find a way to tell in either the Eero or the cable modem.
Here's a link that walks you through the steps. Hopefully the external link is allowed.

I don't know of any way to see the link speed between the gateway eero and your modem. I do see what you're asking now, though.
The speed difference you're seeing shouldn't happen with that kind of direct connection. I think your best troubleshooting bet would be to swap Ethernet cables around. You may have an old or bad cable if your speed is dropping like that.
