I need to change the port speed between my ICX 6610 and the firewall - Quick Easy Question

My 6610 interface is set  to 100 full-duplex and the firewall has been upgraded and is a 1 GB connection?  Our internet is 200MB, to upgraded shortly to 500MB.  We missed that in the firewall cut.   It's live today and  I need it up to a gig, so would I do 1000-full-master, 1000-full-slave or auto? Also will it bounce the port and internet connections?  The students are screaming the internet is slow (ofcourse)!

You need to match it what to the firewall is set, most likely auto. There will be a disruption as the new speed negotiates, only a few seconds.
