10Base-FL Fiber connections
A Fiber network must be matched at both ends, so the 10Base-FL port on an ION meter must be connected to a 10Base-FL network.
The Ethernet (10Base-T) port is different in that it can auto negotiate and determine whether it is connected to 10 or 100 Base-T network. Even when the meter is connected to 100Base-T, the speed is limited to 10 Mbps.
