Connecting Netgear FSM726 to Cisco Switch.

Unanswered Question
Jun 27th, 2008

I am trying to connect a Netgear FSM726 to a Cat 6513 switch and it keeps coming up with err-disable.

This is what we have configured on the interfaces.

interface FastEthernet7/27

no ip address

duplex full

speed 100


switchport access vlan ??

storm-control broadcast level 0.50

rmon collection stats 175

I have changed the port speed/duplex from auto to 100 but it still will not work. I console into the Netgear and also changed the speed/duplex but still does not work.

How can I get this connected?

Is it the "spanning-tree bpduguard enable" stopping it from working? How can I get around this and connect up this Netgear?


I have this problem too.

Hi Qwerty21,

Through personal experience, most foreign devices (non cisco) you need to enable the BPDU guard to stop the port err-disabling. Also check the manufacturer guidelines, you might need to configure a trunk but it depends on what device FSM726 - sorry never googled it :o)
