I’ve stumbled on a problem with the 2.5G Wan port. My Spectrum cable modem has as its only port a 2.5G ethernet port. If I connect it with a Cat 5E cable to the Beryl AX WAN port, the Beryl AX does not pull an IP address and no traffic flows. I tried 3 cables.
If I connect the cable modem to a 1G wan port on another router, a 1G connection is negotiated and traffic flows. If I connect the Beryl AX Wan port to a 1G lan port on the router, a 1G connection is negotiated and traffic flows, so the cables and the port itself are OK.
It’s just that with 2.5G on both sides, I’m getting the light for a physical connection but no activity light and no IP address. (I recognize this very well could be a problem on the cable modem side.)
