ZYXEL C3000Z Gigabit - Poor performance for wired computer

Configured for 1000Mbps and that's what it shows but any wired test from Windows Computer is sub 100Mbps (Last Test:  Down:  96Mbps, Up: 96.5Mbps) My router shows connected but the Connection Status bar shows about 1/5th of the bar in green and the rest is black.  What does that mean???  Is there any test that can be performed from the Router itself?

    That bar doesn't mean the bandwidth, it is just a indicator of "Connected" or "Not Connected".
    The WAN bandwidth is below "1000/1000 Mbps".
     (Last Test:  Down:  96Mbps, Up: 96.5Mbps) 
    This is because the LAN ports are 100/100 Mbps ports, so the speedtest would never over 100 Mbps.
