Today I have plugged in a new Cisco 2901 ISR G2 router into a Cisco 2950 switch.
On router side, the interfaces were hard coded to 100/Full and on the switch side all set to Auto.
On router, the commands SHOW IP INTERFACE G0/0 and G0/1
shows speed as 100 and Duplex as Full.
However on the switch SHOW INTERFACE STATUS
shows a-half and 10mbps.
Is it a normal behaviour?I feel in this case, the router too should have shown speed as 10mpbs and duplex as half.
Now on the switch I have hardcoded the speed/duplex to 100/Full.
Yes. You need to make sure that the effective speed/duplex settings are
supported by both ends. If there is a mismatch, you will start seeing
CRC-Errors and collisions.
