PC 6248, 126.96.36.199, no option to disable auto negotiation for 1000Mbps
Recently upgraded one of our PC 6248 switches to 188.8.131.52. It appears that you can no longer force a port to 1000 Full Duplex. If I disable auto negotiation, the only choices are 10 and 1000.
I called support and was told that they purposely removed this option in 3.x firmware and only way to get 1000 is auto? Huh? Am I missing something.
I am in a colo and several service providers that we connect with do NOT support auto negotiation. This makes 6248 unusable for us with the new firmware. Support said downgrade to 2.x if that's the case. Great..
I guess we'll need to throw out the 6248 and get something else that is reasonable.
