10/100/1000 speed question
« on: March 15, 2011, 02:34:48 pm »

 

I know my Linkstations can accommodate all 3 (10/100/1000) speeds, and are suppose to adjust automatically, and I know I need a Cat-6 to get 1000 speeds.

But, is there any way I can tell what speed they actually connected to?

 

I am using a D-Link DIR 655 router with 10/100/1000 ports, but there are no lights on the back of it, and the D-Link web interface goes not indicate it as well.

So I am looking to the Linkstation to help figure how fast it is connecting. Is there some way?

 

 

I am using:

LS-WX4.0TL/R1 (Duo) / LS-WV4.0TL/R1 (Pro Duo) and TS-X4.0TL/R5 (TS III)

No, there is no way to tell with this unit.

You don't need Cat 6. Cat 5E works fine.
