Hi @kingguile1,

 

On the ES-XP switches, you can either rely on auto-negotiation (1000/100/10) or manually set the port speeds to 100/10 (half/full). 

 

One 'hack' is to try to negotiate down to 100/full using a cat5 (not cat5e) cable.

Looking for an alternative to:

Task: Change the speed and duplex settings
Setup eth0 negotiated speed with mii-tool
Disable autonegotiation, and force the MII to either 100baseTx-FD, 100baseTx-HD, 10baseT-FD, or 10baseT-HD:
# mii-tool -F 100baseTx-HD
# mii-tool -F 10baseT-HD
Setup eth0 negotiated speed with ethtool
# ethtool -s eth0 speed 100 duplex full
# ethtool -s eth0 speed 10 duplex half
To make these settings permanent you need to create a shell script and call from /etc/rc.local (Red Hat) or if you are using Debian create a script into the directory /etc/init.d/ directory and run update-rc.d command to update the script.

 

 

there has to be a way with cli on this
