WNDR3500v3 need to change router speed from 100Mbps to 300Mbps

I have a WNDR3400v3 dual ban router. Firmware version V1.0.1.42. I have check for updates and no other update is available. My internet provider upgraded and I now have speeds of up to 300 Mbps. My router is only receiving 92-95 Mbps. It looks like it is set to 100 Mpbs. Can I change it? My son also has a WNDR3400v3 and has no problem receiving higher speeds. They were both purchased within a couple months of each other. Can the router configuration be changed to the higher speed? Thank you in advance.

No.

 

The WAN port on this router – the one that connects it to the modem – is rated at 100BASE-Tx. That is 100 Mbps. There is nothing you can do to this hardware to get it to connect to your modem at 300 Mbps.

 

The WNDR3400v3 is now nearly 10 years old, based on a router first released in 2010. Time for something more modern.
