2021-02-02 Fiber to the shed: small change of plans 3 weeks ago
I talked about the latest developments in the fiber to the shed project with someone who has more experience in home fiber network and the suggestion was to order a 15 meter single mode lc-lc patch cable to have one cable from shed to the switch. I ordered such a cable at fs.com and added an 100base-LX SFP so the fiber can terminate directly in the downstairs switch. Now waiting for the equipment to arrive, and there will be more work in the crawlspace in my near future. Update 2020-02-04: The ordered fiber and SFP arrived late in the afternoon. Fast service from fs.com. It was shipped via DHL Express and they tried several times to remind me to pick a DHL shop to pick up the package but currently I'm not going anywhere most working days so my doorstep is a perfect delivery address. Update 2020-02-05: After several tries it is clear my netgear switches have SFP slots that do not want to work with a 100base-LX SFP module. So one step back to the plan with two fiber-optic transceivers.
