If you manually set a speed on a port, any and all other devices that you plug into that port will report half-duplex, as they cannot negotiate for full duplex.

 

You would need to set those ports manually as well.

 

(best option though is to let the ports auto-negotiate).

Still a question

Why it reports 100Mb full?
He should not report 100Mb half?

You can manually set a side to 100m "full", and it will try to operate in full duplex (though NIC / firmware / specific device in question may ignore manual FDX and stick with half).
