You could but this is not advisable.  If you hard-code your interface to full duplex and the remote end cannot talk full duplex then the link will stay down.

If you believe that the remote end interface can talk full duplex but couldn't then you need to deteremine why.  Maybe the drivers are faulty or old?

There are some PCs nowadays that when in standby mode will re-negotiate to 10 Half Duplex.  There are some printers too operate exclusively at 10 Half Duplex.

Hi,

My other end device is on full duplex. Should I change the router interface to full duplex.

Is the remote end device hard-coded to full duplex, if so, can you change it to auto/auto?

If not, then try hard-coding your interface to full duplex.  But you have to understand that by doing so, the remote end link may not come up or line errors might occur.
