Hi Friends

I have a problem with a network interface card PA-FE-TX on a 7206VXR router, the interface is currently operating in half duplex mode, this interface is connected to a Fast Ethernet port on a DSLAM where my clients are connected (CPEs ) but I can not change the operating mode to full duplex on the interface of the router 7206, because this causes the upload speed of customers affected by this change. I changed the network cable and the problem persists then you can see the show interfaces command output Fast Ethernet:

Should I replace the interface?

Hello Marcelo,

When you have duplex mismatch, you will have slow performance and it can cause intermittent connectivity, and loss of connection

You also have a lot of CRC error which is caused by the duplex mismatch.

If you have already changed the cable, then it may be a faulty card.  It there any way for you to set the duplex to full and see what happens?

Hi  Reza

That was what I did, however like I said earlier, when I change the operating mode to full duplex, the upload speed decreases in the CPEs

Thanks for your help!

You have many input errors, that indicates the device to which you are connecting is faulty.
