Ethernet interface speed network feature suggestion

Is adding the default value of 10Mbps instead of 100Mbps in the next update a big problem?

This is how it looks in practice on many receivers, as you know yourself


  • The problem is that a lot of recent network hardware doesn't support 10M anymore. It's 100M/1G only. So if I defaulted to 10M there might be problems with the Kiwi appearing to be dead to the network.

    OTOH, maybe a "smarter" algorithm could be employed where if a successful connection to the Internet is made (e.g. pingable) then a down-shift to 10M could be attempted in conjunction with another ping check.

    That's an interesting idea actually. Let me see if I can prototype that..
