Sub-menu: /interface ethernet

Standards: IEEE 802.3

MikroTik RouterOS supports various types of Ethernet interfaces.


Property Description
arp (disabled | enabled | proxy-arp | reply-only; Default: enabled) Address Resolution Protocol mode
auto-negotiation (yes | no; Default: yes) When enabled, the interface "advertises" its maximum capabilities to achieve the best connection possible.
Note: Auto-negotiation must be disabled on both ends, otherwise Ethernets may not work properly.
Note2: Gigabit link cannot work with auto-negotiation disabled.
cable-setting (default | short | standard; Default: default) changes the cable length setting (only applicable to NS DP83815/6 cards)
disable-running-check (yes | no; Default: yes) Disable running check. If this value is set to 'no', the router automatically detects whether the NIC is connected with a device in the network or not.
full-duplex (yes | no; Default: yes) Defines whether the transmission of data appears in two directions simultaneously
l2mtu (integer; Default: ) Layer2 Maximum transmission unit. Read more>>
mac-address (MAC; Default: ) Media Access Control number of an interface.
mdix-enable (yes | no; Default: ) Whether the MDI/X auto crosscable correction feature is enabled for the port
mtu (integer; Default: 1500) Layer3 Maximum transmission unit
name (string; Default: ) Name of an interface
speed (10Mbps | 100Mbps | 1Gbps; Default: max available) Sets the data transmission speed of the interface. By default, this value is the maximal data rate supported by the interface
