Hello before I state my problem, i'll list my computer specs

Computer 1
RAM: 2 gigs
This computer has two lan ports on the MB, 1 is 10/100 mbps and other at 10/100/1000 mbps.

Computer 2
CPU: AMD 64 3000+
RAM: 1 gigs
This computer had one lan port on the MB rated 10/100 and has a addon pci lan port rated 10/100/1000/2000 (TRENDnet TEG-PCITXR)

Right now on each computer the non 1000 lan ports are being used to connect to a router for the internet. The other two 1000 lan ports are connected together with a crossover wire rated CAT6 all the ips and gateways are setup and everything works but the speed. if you look at status and task manager it says the connection is 1gbps but when i transfer it only clips at 100 mbps. so in the task manager is only 1%. How can i sove my problem?

Someone tried that here and what a mess to setup. It didn't work well until we changed to this setup.

internet->modem->router->1Gb Switched Hub->PCs.

And you can imagine all the whining "it should work..." over and over but we had the 1Gb Hub so it didn't take long to setup. There's a lesson here somewhere but I won't write more about it.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
