say, one device port is configured to 10M, while the other device port
is configured to
100M. And the two wronfully configured ports are connected with a
In this situation, the 10M device port looks working ok, while the 100M

like real data and cause
the 10BASE-T device link to activate, causing errored data to be
I wonder whether the above statement is correct or not. If correct, I'd
