if its determined that a LAN device is too far away from the switch, and its presently operating at 1000/full, is there any sense in changing the duplex setting from full to half?
If the LAN device (printer) can support it, I can see changing the speed setting to a slower speed (same CAT 6 cable), like 10 Mbps, but why change the duplex setting? How does that help? I think it would make it worse, if anything. Now you run the risk of creating collisions for no reason....I would leave it at 10/full.
