Hi, I am in situation where one device and switch each other are connected over FTP CAT 5 patch cable . The FTP 5 patch cable is 100.3 metres.
The result is that the state of port in the switch is connected, the port is up, protocol is up, link is up, but I don't see mac address of connected device.
The first thing what I see is that the cable is toooo long! The second thing what I see is that ftp cable is with bad category.
How can I troubleshot the problem? I can only cut 5 or 10 metres of ftp cable but I am not sure that will help. Maybe only with change category type of ftp cable to Cat 6 ? And with short cable not long more than 80 metres?
I don't think cat 5e cable with 100Mb speed is the issue. If it was, the interface on the switch would not go to up and up mode. Also, 100 meters is standard, but you can probably go a little bit above that.
Hi, I tried full duplex and half duplex, speeds 10 and 100, but nothing is happend.
What can I check more to troubleshot the problem?
I think I can go close to Teletonika 3G Router RUT230. I know the default IP address of Teletonika Router, 192.168.1.1/24 I can set laptop with static IP address in the same network, for example 192.168.1.2/24. I can check comunication with short cable between Laptop and Teletonika with 100 metres cables.
