Ethernet Port Speed for PGXL and TGXL

I am doing some cleanup on my network and noticed something interesting.

If I set the Ethernet port speed for my 6600 to 100MB/Full, everything works as expected.

If I set the Ethernet port speed for the TGXL and PGXL to 100MB/Full, I get an Ethernet link, but neither device can grab a DHCP address. If I change back to auto-negotiation, DHCP works fine.

When set to auto-negotiation, the TGXL and PGXL link up at 100MB/Full (according to the switch). It seems the devices have issues when a forced speed/duplex is set.

I have tried this with three switches, and the behavior is the same.

Is anyone else seeing this?

Rich Text Editor. To edit a paragraph's style, hit tab to get to the paragraph menu. From there you will be able to pick one style. Nothing defaults to paragraph. An inline formatting menu will show up when you select text. Hit tab to get into that menu. Some elements, such as rich link embeds, images, loading indicators, and error messages may get inserted into the editor. You may navigate to these using the arrow keys inside of the editor and delete them with the delete or backspace key.
