Ethernet Tap - Workaround for different BASE-T connections
As we all know about the Ethernet tap with IO Ninja works pretty fine.
Nowadays, all the ethernet ports on the network switch and even on a personal computer (laptop and desktop) are 1000 BASE-T. Most IoT devices, considering the legacy ones too, don't support 1000 BASE-T compared to 100 BASE-T.
Most of the users have issues if they use the Ethernet tap on-field or on-site, as in that case, the connection on either end is not the same BASE-T.
In that scenario, if you want to use the Ethernet tap on-site knowing that one end you will connect to a network switch with 1000 BASE-T and the other end is an IoT device with 100 BASE-T; you can't; as per the details in "Note 2" of the ethernet tap manual, it is clearly mentioned that we can't mix the connections with different BASE-T.

The Tap does not allow mixing 10BaseT and 100BaseT connections. Both sides of the Tap must have the same connection speed. That means that you may not connect one side of the Tap to a 100Base-T device and another side—to a 10Base-T device.
We came across a scenario in which your PC can be involved, but it should have two networks (WIFI/Ethernet) adaptors.
You can change the network adapter settings on Windows OS PC; in the advance mode, you can change the BASE-T configuration of the adaptor to your individual needs and restart the adaptor.
A snapshot is shared for your reference to match the adaptor setting to your 10 BaseT device.
