i am connecting c3745 router on fast ethernet 0/0 interface with a IOSvL2 switch on gigabit ethernet 0/1 on GNS3.

i have set the negotiation on the switch to auto for all interfaces on the switch. And also set the duplex and speed on the router interfaces to auto.

but i still get a Duplex mismatch message on the switch.

here is my router configuration:

when i run the show interfaces on the router i get this:

and on the switch when i run show interfaces status i get this:

and the message i get is: *Apr 16 17:36:35.555: %CDP-4-DUPLEX_MISMATCH: duplex mismatch discovered on GigabitEthernet0/1 (not half duplex), with R1 FastEthernet0/0 (half duplex).

please help me.

thanks .

  • The router thinks it is connecting at 10 Mbps, half duplex: Half-duplex, 10Mb/s, 100BaseTX/FX – Ron Maupin Apr 16 at 21:29

The message is from CDP duplex mismatch detection - it might indicate a duplex mismatch that isn't there, indicating a problem with CDP itself (esp. in GNS3).

Check each side's interface status (show interface status) to see if the duplex modes really differ. If the message is wrong you can shut it up by no cdp log mismatch duplex.

[edit after show interface status and show interface additions]: in addition to the duplex mismatch, the router's link shows 10 Mbit/s half-duplex which might even be a link speed mismatch which isn't normally possible. Unless there's another device in between, autonegotiation has failed altogether which most probably is a glitch in the simulation.

  • the show interfaces status on the switch is :` Gi0/1 connected 1 a-full auto RJ45` and on router when i run the show interfaces status i get nothing. – mouhammed saieed Apr 16 at 18:44
  • i have edited the question and add the full config of each device see if there is any clue. – mouhammed saieed Apr 16 at 18:54
  • Try just show interfaces on the router. – Zac67 Apr 16 at 19:01
  • I have done what u asked. – mouhammed saieed Apr 16 at 19:09
