Hi all, I'm having this problem and I cannot find any bug or TAC case in the collection. I'm using PAT between two ethernet interfaces on a c3745 or c3845(I tried both in a lab).
If I keep the duplex and speed negociation to auto, everything works fine and it autonegotiates to full/100, but as soon as I force the duplex to full and speed to 100, the transfer rate of my FTP drops considerably. When I change the speed back to auto everything goes back to normal. I've tried the latest IOS but the problem persist.
Anyone experienced the same problem? Any ideas?
Thanks in advance,
Fixing speed and duplex must be done on both sides. If one end remains in auto-mode the connection will default to half duplex.
This will result in a duplex mismatch between the devices.
