Full Duplex

Unanswered Question
May 28th, 2007

Hi I have 2 cisco 2950 switches connected/linked together by 2 EtherMux Microwaves 100Mbyte Link, one on each site. These Ethermux Microwave devices only support 100 Full duplex. Before I turn on the 100 full duplex on the switches, the link is very reliable. After I had turned it on (speed 100, full duplex), the link are very unstable, sometime it will drop packet and result in connectivity lost

As a concept you must have either both sides Auto negotiation, or you'll have to manually config both sides with 100/Full. (according to your symptoms the MUX supports Auto, and when you manually set on the switch to 100/Full your MUX defaults to Half duplex which is your problem).

Another thing you might need to check here is your cables.

HTH, please do rate all helpful replies,
