How to Alert when MX68 Is dropping to 100Mbps on Internet port?
I am on CenturyLink gigabit fiber with Zyxel C3000Z providing connectivity. I have it connected to Internet Port 1 on my MX68. Typically it negotiates 1Gbps but sometimes - I still don't know why - something burps and the uplink negotiates to 100Mbps speed. Pulling the network cable, waiting for a bit and reconnecting fixes this, and so does the more heavy power-cycling.
Is there a way to configure some alert to tell me when this port is negotiated to 100Mbps?

Wanted to close the thread here. After talking to person more knowledgeable than me and hearing "why isn't your Zyxel modem not in bridge mode", I researched it and realized that I don't actually need it anyway!.
When I was trying to get MX68 to connect directly via PPPoE I didn't specify the VLAN tag of 201. This time I carefully looked at what Zyxel settings were, then connected MX68 it to the ONT device and replicated them one for one. It took seconds to connect and now I have one less device in my home network.
