Some high speed routers/modems (e.g. certain Salt Fiber Boxes) no longer support 10Mbit/s half duplex Ethernet speeds, which is the speed at which the tado° Internet Bridge works. For that reason, you may find the Internet Bridge doesn’t connect to your fiber router/modem anymore.

To fix this, you’ll need to buy a 100/10 Mbit/s network switch (e.g. Renkforce RF-4279924, TP-LINK TL-SF1005D, or NETGEAR GS105) online or in local hardware shops.

Once you have the switch, here’s how to install it:

  1. Plug one end of one of the Ethernet cables into a port on your router/modem, then

  2. plug the other end into any port on your switch.

  3. Plug another Ethernet cable into another port on your switch, then

  4. plug the other end into the Internet Bridge.
