I have the same router. When using a 100mb connection, I only pull about 20-30Mbps. When I use a CAT6 cable, I can get a full 1Gbps connection and max my download to about 160.

 

Does your connection speed indicate 100Mbps or 1Gbps?

 

Can you provide a link to the USB Ethernet adapter you purchased?
