I've just bought a Netgear WAX610 (https://www.netgear.com/support/product/wax610.aspx) access point. Though it is advertised as coming with a 2.5Gbps Ethernet port, the port actually is working only at 1Gbps.

The access point is attached to a Netgear XS716T switch with a tested CAT6A cable.

The 1Gbps is confirmed on both the access point's side (LAN led in solid amber, see https://www.downloads.netgear.com/files/GDC/WAX610/WAX610_IG_EN.pdf) and on the switch's web interface.

Any thoughts what could I try?


The switch you named only supports 10G, 1G and 100M speeds on its switch ports, according to its datasheet. 2.5G and 5G are not supported.

You should purchase a switch which supports 2.5G and/or 5G speeds.
