Hello, I am sure there is Something I missed here
I have just replaced my old Netgear 10/100Mb switch by a brand new Tenda SG108 10/10/1000Mb one, to get gigabit speed between my server and the Vero4K+.
But I can’t manage to have my Vero4K+ negociate 1000Mb speed…
Here is what I see when checking the link.
osmc@Vero4K:~$ sudo ethtool eth0 | grep Speed Speed: 100Mb/s osmc@Vero4K:~$ sudo ethtool eth0 Settings for eth0: Supported ports: [ TP MII ] Supported link modes: 10baseT/Half 10baseT/Full 100baseT/Half 100baseT/Full 1000baseT/Half 1000baseT/Full Supported pause frame use: Symmetric Receive-only Supports auto-negotiation: Yes Advertised link modes: 10baseT/Half 10baseT/Full 100baseT/Half 100baseT/Full 1000baseT/Half 1000baseT/Full Advertised pause frame use: Symmetric Receive-only Advertised auto-negotiation: Yes Link partner advertised link modes: 10baseT/Half 10baseT/Full 100baseT/Half 100baseT/Full Link partner advertised pause frame use: Symmetric Receive-only Link partner advertised auto-negotiation: Yes Speed: 100Mb/s Duplex: Full Port: MII PHYAD: 0 Transceiver: external Auto-negotiation: on Supports Wake-on: ug Wake-on: d Current message level: 0x0000003d (61) drv link timer ifdown ifup Link detected: yes osmc@Vero4K:~$ uname -a Linux Vero4K 3.14.29-156-osmc #1 SMP Tue Oct 15 20:21:25 UTC 2019 aarch64 GNU/Linux osmc@Vero4K:~$
Obviously the Vero could achieve 1000BaseT, but for a reason negociation is stuck at 100BaseT.
I am using a 2meter CAT5e cable from Vero4K+ to the switch. Can this be my problem, must I get a Cat6 or 7 one ?
My desktop on the same switch with a new 15meter Cat7 cable was immediately renegociated at 1000Mb/s full duplex…
Thanks a lot for any advice !
PS/ I read a very long post on the forum about some faulty boxes in 2018 and/or erratic performance in the 300/500Mbs, but it is closed now. And my case is probably more some stupid configuration stuff on me as I don’t even get pass 100BaseT…
