B5-lite Back to Back / Xover


#1

I have two B5-lites at a site and want to connect them back-to-back with no switch. Now I have tried this but can only get them to link when I set them down to 100baseT full or lower. I have tried a straight cable and two different gigabit crossover cable pin outs and the result is always the same, at 1000baseT they say “no link” but if i set at least one side down to 100baseT it links up. So I would like to know, what pin out do i need to use to connect 2 B5-Lite’s back to back at 1000baseT?

HaHaHa, Mimosa won’t even connect to itself on their own ethernet ports!!!, No wonder myself and others have had so much issue with port flapping, drops and the likes!!!

Sorry, had to let that go, if it links at 100 you probably have your cabling correct, but below is how you would do it:

Straight through (both ends)
org-wht
org
grn wht
blu
blu wht
grn
brn wht

Crossover (on one end, the other end cabled as above)
grn wht
grn
org wht
