Looking at this shield here: https://store.arduino.cc/arduino-ethernet-shield-2
It states that "Connection speed: 10/100Mb". However from looking at various forums it appears that no one can get much more than 300Kb/sec with this device?
Can anyone explain what causes this limitation and how to overcome it? If its SPI that is the bottleneck is there some alternative? I am looking to get speeds of 6 mega bytes per second or more using a TCP connection.
I am extremely new to all this so apologies if I've missed something extremely obvious here. I also had a look at bluetooth/wifi shields but it appears they seem to also have some similar throughput issues. USB looked like it could work but is extremely complex for a newbie.
