Forced to use 10 Mbps Full Duplex (Speed & Duplex settings)

I'm using the on-board NIC on my computer. It's a Realtek PCIe GBE Family Controller.

The network adapter will be disconnected unless I set the Speed & Duplex settings for the NIC to 10 Mbps Full Duplex. The NIC will stay disconnected if set to Auto Negotiation. Is my internet speed limited with these settings? I want the card to run as fast as my internet service allows, which is 100 Mbps, I think?

How do I fix this issue?

Here's information on the NIC:

Update: I've narrowed down that the issue is with the cable. I connected my laptop to the port on the router with a different cable, and I was getting 100 Mbps. So looks like I'll be doing some re-wiring. Issue resolved.
