Port Speed Monitor

We were on a job today where there was a bad crimp on an rj45 connection to a port to the router. It was only passing 100mbps rather than the full 1g.

Is there a way to monitor the ports on the router to make sure they are at full 1g? And, if they go below 1g, send an email or alert?

Thanks.

Re: Just got my new CCR1009-7G-1C-PC

We use a lot of dumb gigabit switches that are unmanaged. They all have the same ports. If we use cisco we can use the fiber ports.

Ok, I get what you are saying. That makes sense. We rarely use more than 2 gigabit switches in the rack. One usually for lan devices, and one for ip video distribution. How about if we connect the router directly to the lan switch, and then connect the video distribution switch to a port on the lan ...

When using a bridge for port 3 and 4, do you reference those ports in the firewall, or just the bridge? How about anywhere else in the router? Do you always reference the bridge?

Just got my new CCR1009-7G-1C-PC

I notice that some things are different. The first port is now named combo1. I normally set it up so that port 1 is the wan1, port 2 is the wan2, and ports 3 & 4 are the lans feeding 2 switches. There is no longer an option to slave port 4 to port 3. How is this now done? Thanks.

where does this go: and only if is needed: add src-nat dst-add 192.168.0.100 action src-add to address 192.168.0.101

There are not 2 routers...

There is one router with the lan set to 192.168.47.0/24.

The device just has a static ip of 192.168.0.100. It did not get it's address from a router.

Does that make a difference?

I have a device with a static 192.168.0.100/24 ip address. It comes that way out of the box. It is on the lan with a 192.168.47.0/24 config.
