Has anyone found a way to fix the Huawei ONT supplied to run the port at 1000FX instead of Auto Negotiate.

 

Fibre will be installed at my new place shortly and Id really just rather use my Mikrotik CRS109-8G and not the Cisco SRP547W to manage the PPPoE connection.

 

When I run the Mikrotik it far too often loses link with the Huawei and has to re-establish the PPPoE connection, I believe this to be a Auto Negotiate issue, turning off auto negotiate on the Mikrotik side it doesnt link at all. If I stop announcing 1gb speed on the port on the mikrotik it runs stable but i'm limited to 100mb throughput,  If I run the CRS109-8G as a dumb switch and have the WAN running thru the Cisco it has no issues at all but just seems like an unnecessary link in the chain.

This sounds to me like an issue on your hardware rather than the chorus ONT.

OPs older thread claimed identical problem with Mikrotik talking to Draytek.

Never seen any such issues in the literally hundreds and hundreds of Mikrotik devices I've deployed. Have plenty running of Mikrotik devices running off Huawei ONTs and I've also never seen a negotiation issue.

 

Are you sure you're running the latest firmware (not just the RouterOS upgrade)?

 

I'm also pretty sure having read something years ago forcing 1000Mbps is not actually part of the Ethernet standard and Gigabit always has to be auto negitiate (unlike 10/100 HDX/FDX that can be forced).

Yes its the latest RouterOS.

I remember trying the RB951 I have and had the same issue

Beaker:

System -> Routerboard

 

Both RouterOS & Firmware should be 6.43.2 if on current channel, 6.40.9 bugfix.

Firmware version should be the same as routeros version. If it’s 6.42.6 that’s not up to date.
