Speed - auto - in a Fastethernet interface in a Router

Is there auto-negotiation when you connect a router FaX/X to a switch interface? I know how to check if speed and duplex are auto in a Switch... how can you see this in a router (command)?

Re: Speed - auto - in a Fastethernet interface in a Router

hi, from your question, i believe to use the follwing command to know either auto-nego or not:

"show run int fax/x" to see the configuration of a particular interface. If you do not see Speed 100 and duple-full, then your port is auto-nego.

Yes there is auto-negotiation providing the switch port is set up for auto-negotiation. If you wanted to set the interface to a specific speed/duplex on a router interface

int fa0/0

speed 100

duplex full

Re: Speed - auto - in a Fastethernet interface in a Router

My specific question is how can I see (which command) that an interface chose the speed and duplex setting with auto-negotiation? With a switch you use the sh int status command... what command do you use in a router?

Thanks.

Sorry i wasn't specific enough. If there are not speed/duplex entries under the interface configuration then it is using auto-negotiation. That is how you can tell.

Try using "show interface "

You should get an output similar to the following. I have marked the point where the duplex is displayed.

FastEthernet0 is up, line protocol is up

...show interfaces status -

Re: Speed - auto - in a Fastethernet interface in a Router

The output of "show interfaces" shows the speed and duplex settings but it doesn't show if it got those settings by auto-negotiation or manually... how to know if it got them with auto-negotiation?.

Re: Speed - auto - in a Fastethernet interface in a Router

If there is nothing connected to it you can tell by, if it would say auto where it shows duplex and speed. See below is a show interface of a port set to auto.
