Specify Link Negotiation on Dashboard


(Adam) #1

I don’t see a way to specify the link negotiation speed/duplex in the web interface. As a router/UTM, this would be nice to be able to change without connecting via SSH or going to the console.

Do you mean a partial output of ethtool command? Like this? Which line would you like to show and why?

Link partner advertised auto-negotiation: Yes
Speed: 1000Mb/s
Duplex: Full
Port: MII
PHYAD: 0
Transceiver: internal
Auto-negotiation: on

Some WAN connections don’t auto-detect negotiation speed and duplex properly and require the negotiation to be manually set to an ‘odd’ rate. Any router should have the option to manually set the negotiation speed and duplex, right?
