You're welcome to visit with or w/o taking a look at it.
WiFi only drops to the atrocious 10/10 when I plug something into the Ethernet port on the extender except my laptop that doesn't bother it at all. The Vera plugged into the extender drops the wifi and wired speed to 10/10 and the switch. Only other devices on all the time are a Sonos amp and Sonos port. The previous edition extender that was used with the old Verizon router did not do this. I did not even know this problem could happen.


Some info on how ports negotiate and what they do not do: "Auto-negotiation is a protocol, and as with any protocol, it only works if it's running on both sides of the link. So if one side of a link is running auto-negotiation, and the other side of the link is not, auto-negotiation CANNOT determine the speed and duplex configuration of the other side."

More info can be found on why it fails:


10/100 devices do not support as much negotiation as 1G devices. Likely the original configuration of the 10/100 devices were matched (such as both 100full) and now the newer device in the system has auto-negotiation talking to a 100Full. From what I am reading, basically if the 10/100 devices negotiation settings do not match, they will never resolve correctly.
