Best way to get a fibre connection to SFN8522


Recommended Posts

Hi need to get fibre to my SFN8522 network card.

 

I am reliant upon Wi-Fi, as there is no ethernet cable into my living room.  I use a Netgear mesh system and run an ethernet cable from the Wi-Fi access point to my music server.


I could use a router with sfp built into it to undertake the conversion, e.g a stock Buffalo GS2016, Edgerouter X SFP or Sonore OpticalModule.


Or I could get a new router such as the new ASUS RT-AX89 or Netgear x10 with sfp built in.

 

Suggestions on best approach or other products?

If I understand correctly, you are using wifi to cover the majority of the distance and you want to replace the ethernet cable from the access point to the music server with a bunch of new hardware and a short fibre optic cable.  Is that correct?  For my education (sorry to not answer your question), what does that accomplish?
