Full duplex Prb

Hello, I'm trying to switch my VoIP network over to Full duplex. Each time I call my ISP an direct them to switch it over the whole netwok goes down. I'm assuming my linksys WRT310N is not supporting full duplex. I can find no setting of it but I assumed it would automatically switch over. Does this router actually support full duplex? I called support and they said yes... Is there something else I could try? And when I say the network goes down I mean I cannot even ping my gateway, or I can ping it for 10 seconds then it drops off for 10 minutes!

Thanks!!

If your ISP forces full duplex, it will no longer negotiate duplex with your linksys. So unless you can force the Linksys to full duplex also, you will have a mismatch and the Linksys wil begin seeing a massive number of collisions. This could be enough to cause outages.

If the ISP is set to auto-negotiate and you are too, then if you unplug your link and plug it back in again, it should auto-negotiate to the fastest speed it supports.

What speed is your ISP link? Not all devices support 10mb/full duplex, and I'm not sure if any device will negotiate to 10mb/full duplex.

Yes it seems to have something to do with the router not being able to perform at Full Duplex. I'm asking in another thread if there is a way to force that specific router to full duplex.

Thanks!
