It appears your adapter uses the igb driver.

Gigabit ethernet can also do 10/100, it's a 10/100/1000 chipset. You might be ending up on the lower speed side for some reason.

$ ip link show

# mii-tool enp1s0
enp1s0: negotiated 100baseTx-FD flow-control, link ok
(because I'm connected to a 10/100 switch)

Or whatever your wired chipset shows up as. Granted that negotiated speed is dependent on both ends agreeing on a common denominator. You could also try fiddling with some settings like the MTU. BITD, having an MTU of 1492 (default is 1500) gave a noticeable boost for some cable providers.

# ip link set enp1s0 up mtu 1492

Of course BITD, dialup had an MTU of 576. Which on noisy connections can still boost transfer rates as lost/corrupted packets get repeated in a less bulky fashion. It could also just be a difference in the DNS lookup configuration. On some of my installs I have to stop systemd-resolved to have DNS work at all.

# systemctl stop systemd-resolved

But that's using the older /etc/resolv.conf DNS setup method.

i based on the specs of the mobo i would say yes that's the driver installed.

Code:
1: lo: <LOOPBACK,UP,LOWER_UP> mtu 65536 qdisc noqueue state UNKNOWN mode DEFAULT group default qlen 1000
    link/loopback 00:00:00:00:00:00 brd 00:00:00:00:00:00

2: enp4s0: <BROADCAST,MULTICAST,UP,LOWER_UP> mtu 1500 qdisc mq state UP mode DEFAULT group default qlen 1000
    link/ether d0:17:c2:8c:03:51 brd ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff

ok long story short i decided to backup the 3 partitions on the os drive, reset the ssd, and install kubuntu 18.04. checked my speed and got 560, 835, 790. i installed vivaldi, launched and closed it, replaced the profile with my backed up one, and when i did a speed test got the 87 or under. looks at this point it's a vivaldi addon or setting that's causing the issue. a clean vivaldi gets the speeds it should. looks like i'll be building vivaldi backup from scratch and testing at every step. should of realized it was something in vivaldi when i did 637 megs of updates including install via discover in less than a minute. thanks for the help and input, much appreciated. i'll leave this unmarked as solved for now just in case something else pops up. thanks again.

on further consideration i think i'm leaving vivaldi as is. i tested vivaldi, vivaldi-snapshot both with and without extensions, firefox without extensions and for normal browsing page loading isn't any different from what i can see. no matter which browser i download through i do see the increased speed in that respect. having the faster downloads and updates is the main thing so i'm good.
