Cisco SOHO 91 Router showing Ethernet 0 instead of Fast Ethernet 0

This is weird. I haven't used a Cisco product with an integrated switch, so maybe I'm just missing something easy, but shouldn't my internal Ethernet connection show as a Fast Ethernet connection?

All the documentation I've found on this product shows that it has an integrated 10/100 switch. It's even lists the 4 LAN ports as 10/100 on the back of the unit, but when I show interface it shows the following:

Ethernet0 is up, line protocol is up Hardware is PQUICC Ethernet, address is 0011.20df.8b47 (bia

0011.20df.8b47) Description: Inside Lan Internet address is MTU 1500 bytes, BW 10000 Kbit, DLY 1000 usec, reliability 255/255, txload 1/255, rxload 1/255 Encapsulation ARPA, loopback not set Keepalive set (10 sec) Full-duplex, 10Mb/s ARP type: ARPA, ARP Timeout 04:00:00 Last input 00:01:08, output 00:00:09, output hang never Last clearing of "show interface" counters never Input queue: 0/75/0/0 (size/max/drops/flushes); Total output drops: 0 Queueing strategy: fifo Output queue: 0/40 (size/max) 5 minute input rate 0 bits/sec, 0 packets/sec 5 minute output rate 0 bits/sec, 0 packets/sec 13585 packets input, 2785949 bytes, 0 no buffer Received 1710 broadcasts, 0 runts, 0 giants, 0 throttles 0 input errors, 0 CRC, 0 frame, 0 overrun, 0 ignored 0 input packets with dribble condition detected 75103 packets output, 16335270 bytes, 0 underruns 0 output errors, 0 collisions, 0 interface resets 0 babbles, 0 late collision, 0 deferred 0 lost carrier, 0 no carrier 0 output buffer failures, 0 output buffers swapped out

There doesn't appear to be any speed command available for the interface either. I'm using IOS Version 12.3(2)XC2, EARLY DEPLOYMENT RELEASE SOFTWARE (fc1)

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

The docs say that it has Ethernet ports, but a 4 port 10/100 switch.

I'd read that as 10 Mbit Ethernet ports out both sides, but if you wanted to plug in 100Mbps devices into the switch, its not going to degrade them from talking to one another down to the port speed it has.

It shouldn't, but when I let the devices Auto Negotiate speed, they choose 100Mb and the router won't talk to them at 100Mb, only 10Mb.

That means I have to manually set the speed on the devices. This is ok for most computers, but I have a DVR that doesn't allow me to change the port speed.

I suppose I could put a 10Mb hub/switch in between the router's built in switch and the DVR, but thats kinda a rig. I'd think that Cisco would have a speed option in the IOS somewhere...

Any other ideas?

If this is a SOHO91 it should have 2 ethernet modules not a 4 port switch. Do a show hard and it will tell you at the bottom what kind of interfaces you have

IE ISCO SOHO91 (MPC857DSL) processor (revision 0x301) with 29492K/3276K bytes of memory. Processor board ID FOC08520YKK (4255911535), with hardware revision

0000 CPU rev number 7 Bridging software. 2 Ethernet/IEEE 802.3 interface(s) This is weird. I haven't used a Cisco product with an integrated switch, so

I've got one of these SOHO91 ethernet routers and my interfaces show up as ethernet not fast ethernet, the built in switch on mine (which is eth0 if I remember correctly) runs at 10mb not 100. I've never bothered with the switch and run it directly into another 100meg switch for the lan.
