  • Page 6: About Fast Ethernet

    About Fast Ethernet Fast Ethernet is a network technology specified by IEEE Standard 802.3u. It extends the traditional 10Mbps (10 megabit/sec) Ethernet technology to achieve 100Mbps (100 megabit/sec) trans- mission and reception. Because Fast Ethernet retains the tradi- tional Ethernet CSMA/CD (Carrier Sense, Multiple Access, Collision Detect) protocol, it remains wholly compatible with 10Mbps Ethernet while providing a tenfold increase in network capacity.

  • Page 7: About Autonegotiation

    About Autonegotiation The basic idea of auto-negotiation is similar to the familiar process of making a dialup connection between two modems. When you attempt a connection you have probably heard some gravelly- sounding exchanges between your local modem and a modem at the other end of a telephone line.

  • Page 8

    About Autonegotiation continued Startup communication between the two devices occurs when both devices are operating, the cable connection between them is good, and the connected notebook PC's network soft- ware is loaded. As soon as those conditions are satisfied, the preparatory process of auto-negotiation between the DFE-670TXD and its supporting device begins and proceeds automatically.
