Well, it's not the cable its the modem.  I did a direct shot to the computer and I am getting full 250Mbps.  

 

Any other ideas?

So there is no way to physically change the port speed.  My cable is old but I am sure it's cat 5.  I will go get a cat 6 today and try it.  thanks very much for your response!!
