Recently I bought a Gb-switch (Zyxel GS-105B). When I connect my MBL to it, auto negotiate will end up in a 100 Mb connection speed. The NIC in my pc will connect at 1 Gb when connected to this switch.
If I connect the MBL directly to my pc, it will set-up a Gb connection. So I know that both my pc and MBL are capable of Gb connections. it seems that the MBL somehow doesn’t recognize my switch as an Gb-switch.
I allready tried to force a Gb-connection by using ethtool, but this just freezes the MBL.
Are there more people with a similar problem? Or does anybody have a clue why the MBL doesn’t connect at Gb speed.
BTW: I’m certain it has nothing to do with the cables I use. I have been capable of setting up a Gb connection using the same cables.
