Mikrotik Chateau LTE12 ethernet problem
#1
Hello,

I can not have my PC connect to the router with lan cable at 1GB. 

It can connect at 1GB with a much less capable Tenda router using the same cable, so I deduct that the problem is with the router.

I have tried several different things, turning off auto-negotiation on either ends and trying to force 1GB - it does not connect

All it can do is negotiate and connect at 100Mbps, which is to slow for my needs (wireless VR gaming with Oculus).

Winbox is so comprehensive with thousands of options, that makes me hope that maybe there is some setting to achieve the 1GB connection through ethernet ports, if this is the case I would very much appreciate any help.

Thank you!

The Chateau LTE12 should automatically establish a 1Gbps connection without any prior configuration. With with both the Chateau LTE12 and 5G models I bought, I have not made any change to the Ethernet settings. Every Gigabit Ethernet capable device attached reports a 1Gbps connection.

Try with a different port and also with another Ethernet cable. If a different port works at 1Gbps, examine the port the cable was plugged into for any bent pin or debris such as lint.

If every port gives the same issue, try connecting a second Ethernet cable from another port to any LAN port on the Tenda router. Then check the Rate field on the status page for that Ethernet port in Winbox (Interfaces -> Interface tab -> double-click the port (e.g. ether2) -> Status tab). If it shows 1Gbps, then there's a possibly a compatibility issue with the PC's Ethernet adapter. If it shows 100Mbps, then there's a likely a hardware problem with the Chateau, in which case I suggest contacting the supplier to get the router exchanged or contact MikroTik Support.

Thank you Sean, you are right!

PC to Tenda, 1Gb.

Mikrotik to Tenda, 1Gb.

Mikrotik to PC, 100Mbps Sad

I will contact MikroTik support to get advice, thanks a lot!

In the meantime you can try using a Gigabit switch in-between the PC and the router. As the PC and MikroTik will independently negotiate the connection to the separate switch ports, this should provide 1Gbps assuming both establish a 1Gbps link to the switch.

If you don't have a network switch, you can make the Tenda router work like a switch by disabling its DHCP server. Then connect the MikroTik to a LAN port of the Tenda router and your PC to another LAN port of the Tenda router.

Yes, that, or buy a USB to Ethernet dongle to mediate between my PC and MikroTik. Thanks again Sean!
