You are troubleshooting physical layer issues with the Gi0/1 interface in a router. You need to view and analyze the number of collisions detected on the interface.
show interfaces gi0/1
You are troubleshooting physical layer issues with the Gi0/1 interface in a router. You suspect that a duplex mismatch error has occurred, and you need to determine the duplex settings configured on the interface.
show interfaces gi0/1 and show interfaces gi0/1 status
Review the output from the show interfaces fa0/1 command on the switch2 switch in the exhibit.
a duplex mismatch exists with the device on the other end of the connection
Consider the network shown in the exhibit. When you run the show interfaces command on switch1, you observe a significant number of runts on the gi0/1 interface.
Collisions are occurring.
You are reviewing the output of the show interfaces command for the gi0/1 interface on a switch. You notice a significant number of CRC errors displayed.
EMI or cross talk on the cable connected to the interface and collisions
You are reviewing the output of the show interfaces command for the gi0/1 interface on a switch. Which interference statistic displays the number of collisions that occurred after the 64th byte of the frame was transmitted?
Late collisions
A workstation is connected to a switch on the gi 0/2 interface using a straight through cable.
The switch attempts to sense the link speed. If it can’t, the slowest link speed supported on the interface is selected. If the link speed is 10 mbps or 100 mbps, half duplex is used. If the link speed is 100 mbps of faster, full duplex is used.
Consider the network shown in the exhibit. You have been experiencing intermittent connectivity issues with switch2. To check the status of the interfaces, you run the following commands:
The device connected to the fa0/1 interface has autonegotiation disabled.
