Ethernet Backhaul with 3200 wifi extender - mismatched backhaul bitrate indications
Enthusiast - Level 1

I have FIOS with a 3100 router connected to a 3200 wifi extender via a point2point ethernet cable on port#1 of both devices. On the management interface, via (Router —> Network Settings —> Port Configuration) it indicates “Full Duplex 1,000 Mbps”. However, if I go into (System —> System Status) it indicates Backhaul Type: “Ethernet”, Bit Rate: “100 Mbps”.  So which is it? Seems like a bug, and I’d love to know which is the accurate speed indication for the link between these devices.

Same with the extender and the Cr1000 router. The extender also thinks it's 1969, but the logs show the correct year.
