Ethernet ports - what speed should they be?

Hi All - One step forward - how many steps back?

 

Our new HH3 was delivered today, before our infinity upgrade tomorrow.

I've swopped the old HH2 for the new hub running on the old BB, and connected all my ethernet cables.

The GigaBit into my laptop - two direct into the back of our TVs - and one into a 10/100MB network switch(running back up hard drives, a printer switch and to 2 rooms in the house).

 

My computer showed my network card was connected to a GigaBit connection, but the network switch had the 10Mbit light on.

 

Further checking showed that Way 1 on the HH3 was 100 MBit, ways 2&3 were only 10MBits while way 4 was 1GigaBit.

 

Is this correct? or should ways 1 - 3 all be 100 MBits.

Thanks

Michael

Re: Ethernet ports - what speed should they be?

Hello,

 

Port 4 should be Gigabit.

Port 1-3 should be 10/100Mbit/s auto-sensing Full duplex.

 

However, there is a suspected problem with the HH3 (but yet to be acknowledged by BT) in that it sometimes pegs ports to 10Mbit/s:

Hope this helps and good luck,

Thanks tommy,

 

The technician is supposed to be coming tomorrow to fit the infinity, so I may ask if he has a spare hub that we could compare with.

 

Will post tomorrow.

 

Michael.

Your PC will show a Gb connection if that is what the ports on your switch are rated at as that is what it's connected to.
