    The auto-negotiation function is effective only when the DFE-690TXD is connected to the network by a device (switch or hub) which also has auto-negotiation functionality.
  • Page 5: About Fast Ethernet

    It does not provide 100Base-T4 or 100Base-FX operation. To provide for traditional 10Mbps Ethernet operation in twisted-pair cable environments, the DFE-690TXD also offers 10Mbps Ethernet operation, in full-duplex and half-duplex modes. The DFE-690TXD’s auto-negotiation capability provides for automatic selection of the best operation mode.
  • Page 6: About Auto-Negotiation

    Auto-negotiation between devices within an Ethernet LAN is similar in concept, but much briefer. The two devices involved in the auto-negotiation will be your DFE-690TXD and the switch or hub through which it is connected into the LAN. (Switches ordinarily provide for auto-negotiation; traditional hubs do not.) The parameters to be negotiated between the DFE-690TXD and its supporting switch or hub include speed (100Mbps = Fast Ethernet, or 10Mbps = traditional Ethernet) and duplex mode (half-duplex or full-duplex).

    If the supporting device does not have auto-negotiation functionality, then its monotone (single capability) message will be recognized by the DFE-690TXD’s auto-negotiation facility, and the DFE-690TXD will simply switch to the one of its own capabilities which matches that of the supporting device.
