Link speed and duplex settings

note:
This information applies only to Ethernet networks. It does not apply to wireless networks.
The link speed and communication mode of the print server must match the network hub. For most situations, leave the product in automatic mode. Incorrect changes to the link speed and duplex settings might prevent the product from communicating with other network devices. If you need to make changes, use the product control panel.
note:
The setting must match with the network product to which you are connecting (a network hub, switch, gateway, router, or computer).
note:
Making changes to these settings causes the product to turn off and then on. Make changes only when the product is idle.
