Model: TL-SG108
Hardware Version: V2
Firmware Version:

I use port 8 on the switch as the up-link port. It get's it's link from my SonicWALL. There is only a 0.5 feet CAT6 patch cable between and I have tried different cables and different ports on the SonicWALL. I still only get 100 Mbps from the switch port.

 

Is this by design?

The switch auto negotiates the speeds rather then it being able to be set like a router or computer.

 

Connect a computer to the switch with the same cabling to see if you still get 100 Mbps. Use that same cable to connect to the SonicWall to see the link speed.

 

Here is an article that talks about why the slow down may happen, but specifies the cable should be a EIA/TIA-568EIA/TIA-568 standard cable with the crystal plug and the wire cords tightly clamped.
