I have 3750 switch and connected to my all edge switches through fibre cable.  I want to know that the link between 3750 and edge switch 2960 is gigabit link, how i can check that gigabit link is ok.


i was check some cisco command its shows speed=auto.


but when i connected 4 server directly to 3750, so i can't feel that link is gigabit link.  can you tell me how i can trace about this link is gigabit or 100MB.


about cisco command i was check

show interface <port no> status

show interface <port no> capabilities and other also.


Note:  i need to do forcely command on interface port for gigabit link like = speed 1000

rightnow is speed=auto.

Dear mrsysengineer,


It depends on Server ethernet port. If you keep switch interface in auto speed mode and Server Eth is in 100 Mb mode than port will work with 100 Mb speed. If Server Eth port is 1000Mb than Switch port will work with speed 1000Mb.


You can check this using sh int   or sh int status.


So fisrst check you Server ethernet LAN setting.


Hope this will help you.

how i can check that gigabit link is ok

Can you elaborate?  Do you want to see Layer 1/Layer 2 status?  Do you want to see if there are line errors?  Do you want to see if you've got Gig ports are correctly connected?

Hi,


In order to check the speed and duplex setting of an interface on switch is


show int gig 0/12 it will show the detail of the interface with duplex setting and spped negotitaed with the peer end device.


In order to configure speed and duplex setting in interface following is the procedure


conft>int gig 0/12

conf-if>speed 1000

conf-if>duplex full


Hope to Help !!

Form the below command out put will give you the details about the link speed like Gi/1 & Fa5/1 and 
the status about the link connected err-disabled ….
And the duplex and speed will give you the current config details of the ports. 

full and auto means : 100Mbps or 1000Mbps in ethernet



The status : connected > the connection is ok.


and Type's media type's:


the media will give you the details about physical cable details.


BASE means it is baseband ethernet.

TX means twisted-pair cable, category 5 or above.

LX means fiber-opti cable.

SX means fiber-optic cable.
