False positives on RxBadPkt on TL-SG116E
I recently deployed a new TL-SG116E at home wanting to use its "managed" features in my home VLAN setup. To my surprise, once configured, the switch is reporting false positives on tagged port (RxBadPkt counter increases). After searching this forum I found two relevant threads (both already locked, so I had to start a new one):
The second reply seems to admit that it is a hardware bug in the switch chip, which misidentifies padded frames as bad ones.
Now, because I bought a new switch a month ago and the topic is two years old, and there is not firmware update for my version, I am confused. Is this an accepted behavior?
I guess, if yes, I cannot accept it, because the RxBadPkt counter is the only diagnostic the switch has and thus the only way to detect the real problems.
I cannot run my home lan watching the RxBadPkt counter continuosly increasing while telling myself that it is as fine as it should.
Since it seems to be (or was) present both 8 and 16 port switches, does anyone know, if there are any other TP-Link switches which work correctly?
