If we have auto negotiation set at the Switch level for a printer connection, can it result in the printer loosing connection form the network intermittently?
If I leave the switch setting at auto-negotiation, does it mean that from time to time, the ports on the printer and switch will be auto negotiating the speed and duplex at which they want to send data. And thereby affect connectivity. The printer is connected to a DHCP Server. Can this affect connectivity?
Is it proper for me to set a fixed speed/duplex at the Switch level to get continuous connectivity for the printer?
When I do a ping -t, I do get dropped packet from time to time
