I am curious what the recommended link speed settings for the various ports. The external port has to be hard speedcoded to 100/full as that is required by the ISP. The internal connection is to a gig core switch at auto detect (1000/full).
Should the internal connection be set to 100/full to match the external?
Speaking of hardcoding this seems to be valid for 10 and 100Mbit links but for 1Gbit and upwards the IEEE standard suggests one to use auto/auto (or auto/full, auto/half).
So if you set one side statically to 1000Mbit it might end up with funny results depending on what you have on the other side.
Note however that this depends on hardware being used. Some hardware when you force it to 1000Mbit will actually still use auto/auto but only propose 1000Mbit as supported speed (instead of 10, 100, 1000 as it would normally do).
