I have a Catalyst 2960. I've got the port speed set to auto, and the speed and duplex on the NIC (HP NC373i Multifunction Gigabit) on the other end of the cable is set to auto. According to the docs, it should negotiate at 1000mbps full, but it resets at 100mbps full. If I also set the duplex on the switch to auto, it negotiates at 100mbs half. If I try forcing either side to 1000 full while the other side is on auto, the link won't come up.
Help. I am no expert at this, but this seems pretty simple. Any suggestions?
Thanks in advance,
