Model: ER8411  
Hardware Version:
Firmware Version:

Installing an 8411.

 

Using 10G SPF+ port to connect to a modem with 1Gig port.

 

The issue is the 10G port does not auto negotiate, it is default to 10Gig full duplex. 

 

Ah, no big deal, right?  Just log in to the web interface of the 8411 and set the SPF+ port to 1G.  BAM! Works!

 

Then join to OMADA... And.. It returns to 10G again.  Hey, no problem, just change the speed to 1G in OMADA.. If only that was an option. And EVEN if it was an option, how could one even change it?  If the 8411 can't connect to internet..?  I found a work around by using 2 WAN's, the 2nd WAN being a normal 1G Ethernet port. But, no matter, as there is no setting to change the 10G port speed / duplex in OMADA interface. CATCH22

 

Basically, you can't connect the 10G port to a 1G device (modem) when using OMADA. CATCH 22 type of problem.

 

I guess I "can" just use one of the other WAN ports. But that is not the issue. The issue is the 10G port has no auto negotiate.  Is there a practical reason for this?

Hello @DaKings

 

May I double confirm whether you have upgraded the firmware of ER8411 to the latest ER8411(UN)_V1_1.1.0 Build 20230705?

The latest firmware has added support for setting port speed and duplex mode in Controller mode, check the Release note.

  @DaKings I find that most of the Omada cloud controller interface is limiting, its certainly not developed in other areas as well.

  @DaKings 

 

By chance, are you on the newest controller version and firmware version of the 8411?

 

1.1.0_Build 20230705(Official) ?

 

Changing port speeds is in changelog.  If its not there, I would email support letting them know.  @Fae

Did you play already with flow controll settings on WAN port (if possible in Omada Mode) and on Switch Port ?

  @Daniel2908 there is no flow control in the controller configuration utility.

The controller is the most current. The 8411 was at 1.00 and had a firmware update. I did that update after I got it on OMADA controller.

 

Seems odd there is not an option to change port settings, like duplex and speeds.

 

 

 

I'm not really affected or bothered by it. I'm only bringing it up, in hopes it'll be fixed in the future. It does not prevent the operation of the system. But if someone not as "skilled" is trying to get the 10G interface to connect to a 1G modem, they'll get upset quick.  All because of a simple setting that is not available .

You are correct. After firmware update, there is now an option to change the speed / duplex of the 10G ports.

 

This is my 2nd 8411 in my fleet, The first one is at my datacenter and I installed the most current firmware. Plus, at that site, I have dual 10G links right off main 10G switches. So never played with connecting to a 1G link. This one, my 2nd one, had the original firmware ver 1.00 ( or something like that ).I "played" in the web interface for a few days before connecting to my OMADA server.

 

 

Thanks!
