Re: What does the mode switch on the front of a 2900XL do?
Catalyst series switches have four LED modes, each of which provides different information about a particular port or the switch itself. The Mode button highlights each mode in sequence. LED modes provide the following information:
STAT The port status. This is the default mode.
UTL The current bandwidth in use by the switch.
FDUP The port duplex mode: full duplex or half duplex.
100 The port operating speed: 10 or 100 Mbps.
To change the port mode, press the Mode button to highlight the mode that you want. Release the button to enable the highlighted function.
