    I have an AP-105 that will not connect at 1GB, only 100/Full.     I've reset the AP and even factory defaulted it.   I tried to force an Ethernet 0 Profile on it as well, but nothing.  I've tried with POE switch, injectork, and DC power, and different 1GB switches/ports.    Is there an evnvironment variable I am missing?

    You shouldn't need an Environment Variable (aka setenv).


    By default it should negotiate up to 1Gbps... I have dozens of deployments doing that out-of-box.   If you issue 'purge' then the AP is out of box config and that should work...have never had to modify it from that mode.


    DO you have other AP-105s that are working OK?   (aka. can you try another one on same port etc and see if that has same result?)


    POE switch would be the best bet as it keeps-things-simple (KIS) of course.... which I see you have tried in vain.

    Thanks....yes, other APs are fine.  I know the switches are fine...have AP-105 and AP-135s working fine.  This particular one though will only negotiate at 100MB/Full; no matter the port, switch, cable, or power source.


    I have done both purse/save/reset and factory_reset.

    I found one of Colin's COTD for checking the negotiated speed of an AP, the results are below.  They show autonegotiate on; but 100/Full.      I may give TAC a call and see about a replacement.

    on 100 Full bond0




    UPDATE:   AP was RMA'd.

    If its one AP that is the 'sore thumb' then an RMA makes a lot of sense, for sure.


    Good work at diagnosing the problem down to the level where you were sure (a  step skipped by many ;))
