Switch Issues

Fri Aug 24, 2007 10:43 pm

Any one know of a switch that is compatible with the card Atheros 5413 in the Mikrotik router. Currently I have my switches in half dulpex, 10MBs, and auto negotiation disabled. Iwould like to push 100 MBs, auto-negotiation enabled, and full duplex.

the atheros is a wireless card, what are you talking about ? any 10/100 switch should work out fine, if its not, post what model it is and we'll have a look

Just put a cheap $10 "dumb" switch in.

If that doesn't fix it I think you have another problem.

I would guess your switch can auto-negotiate but is not plug & play (thus when you set to 100 full switch is neg to 100half)

I use HP Procurves at 100 half and it works really well.

Thanks
