Fortigate 60E - Interface WAN Giga working only Fast
I have bought a used Fortigate 60E to work with SD-WAN. The port WAN2 not working (no sign of life) but my problem is the port WAN1 because it's working only Fast. My service provider router is Giga and my link is 500Mb. What is the problem?
I count with your support
- The two WAN ports are 10/100/1000;
- My firewall is up to date - version 7.0.12;
- Memory and CPU used is OK;
- When i tested the same cable on another port, it's works Giga (Today, it's my workaround);
- When i forced the speed port to 1000, it's stop work;
1, Make sure the interface is set to auto or 1000full in the CLI 2, Test with a known-good(!) cable and a known-good (!) device on the other end of that cable.
3, If the FortiGate still can't negotiate/function on 1000full, then the WAN1 port is most likely also (half-)broken. Proceed with RMA if the unit has support coverage, or being sad if not.
It's worth noting that there's nothing stopping you from re-purposing one of the (hopefully still functioning!) internal1~7 interfaces, or the DMZ, as your new "WAN" link. You won't lose any functionality nor suffer any performance degradation by doing this (apart from the visual simplicity of a WAN interface being named WAN1/2).
