Is there a way to change full/half duplex options on Meraki switch ports?

Hi,

 

Is there a way we can change the duplex option on Meraki switches e.g. change full to half duplex on different speeds? Or at lease we can confirm what is duplex option when a port is connected at 100 and 10mbps. I know the dark green light means operating at low, and most probably at 100 and half duplex. But its not clear if the port is only running on 100mbps or with 100mbps its also operating on half duplex.

 

Thanks

Hi @Waheed-Ali 

 

Click on the switchport in question then under Link you have your speed and duplex settings

I'm not an employee of Cisco/Meraki. My posts are based on Meraki best practice and what has worked for me in the field.

Oh.. thats great What about the other part. Can we verify/check if port is not only connected on 100mbps but its also half duplex. According to one CISCO thread if a port is connected on 1000mbps its always full duplex automatically but if it is 100mbps it can be half/full both. How can we check what is the duplex mode of a low connected port. The dark connected port?

You can also see speed and duplex under Link Negotiation (see screenshot below)

Thanks for the reply. Yeah I already read that on the meraki documentation. Although it says but it does not show the duplex mode anywhere. It only shows the speed at which it is connected. It does not show the duplex info.

For the MX/Z devices the only option you have for link speed and duplex is the local status page, you can’t do it through the Dashboard. And what you get on the local status page is a bit limited too.
