Hi there,

I have a R730 which I'm powering via an independent power supply (not POE).

My mikrotik Cloudcore Router cannot connect to the Ruckus R730 5Gbps ethernet port at any speed faster than 1gbps. Under "Link Partner Advertising" speeds are only 100M and 1000M. Any idea why the Ruckus is not advertising 2.5G and 5G?

I did try connecting at the higher speed but the Ruckus just states that the connection is down.

Connection is via cat 6 cable

Hi Douglas,

Could you please let me know the power supply you are using?
On the AP CLI check the command "get eth" to see the AP ethernet negotiation capabilities.

Also, what is the model of the Microtik?

Hi Sanjay,

Now that I check my router it actually doesn't do those speeds (but the software has the option to set 5G connection speeds... which I mistakenly took to mean that it could).

Sorry to have bothered you.
