Omega PS150 floods LAN with packets when used with Xerox MFP

There are bugs in the PS150 2.0.1 network linkup code and the Xerox MFP (286 and DC320 in the PHAROS NZ office)


If the Xerox MFD starts up on a dead LAN port the Xerox auto-negotiate link up creates a default of 10 Mbit half-duplex. If the PS150 is then powered up, the PS150 Ethernet port links up into a bad state that floods the LAN with lots of packets. Set Xerox MFD LAN to 100 Mbit half-duplex.


Future 2.1 release stops flooding network but still links up to a slow speed of 10 half-duplex. We will still recommend configuring Xerox LAN to 100 Mbit half-duplex.
