  1. I **think** I did know these things. On point for you to say, "If I get to it". Lol. But if I do...I will absolutely ensure all switches and SFP play well with each other and my LC-LC FO cable. And also any ethernet patch cables.
  2. Again, I am going to just run the LC-LC fiber optic and Cat 6 and sort out my ongoing confusion later. I really don't need to sort it all out now. Especially, since FO is just a contingency plan. Last week I said I would review all the advice I'd rec'd and present distilled questions if further clarification was needed. I didn't have time to do the review. But I did post a bit ago, saying, "So, to make sure I understand the layout completely...." You said "yes" to my plan... But I see that in the network path using arrows (form 12.30.20) that 2960 (FMC
  3. I've not selected one yet. For now I wish to just fish the fiber optic cable at the same time I am having the the cat 6 run. In case I wish to try optical ethernet later. But wouldn't your suggested cisco 2960G be a good one?
  4. Should have started my previous post differently. Strike "And" Replace with, "So to make sure I understand the layout completely", a piece of cat cable (aka, patch cord) connects.....
  5. And a piece of cat cable (aka, patch cord) connects my ISP-provided modem/router gateway to the FMC. From there, my 30M single-mode optical cable connects to the transceiver i've plugged into the FMC and also connects to the transceiver in the FMC in my music room. I use another Cat patch cord to connect from FMC to my Innuos. Then finally, a USB cable connects my Innuos to my DAC. Correct?
  6. MarkusBarkus. That's great. Thank you. I will drill down it later and get back with you. It is easy to overthink. In broad strokes, what you present here is in line with what my acquaintance from May set out for me. I spoke with him yesterday btw and shared with him some frustrations I was having with myself for not better-understanding his instruction set. Certain things just didn't add up. I was finding incongruities and feeling dense. It was a relief when I found out that I wasn't loosing my mind. As we talked, he readily admitted he'd omitted some salient details and also simply
  7. The guy running my cables is perfectly comfortable with running it pre-terminated. Thank you also, for tips on how I can engage my ISP for better gear. If, they offer a separate modem and router option instead of the combo gateway, I would be very interested perhaps using their modem and getting my own much better-performing router. My main concern for ditching their gear completely is losing support/troubleshooting from the ISP if none of the gear is theirs anymore. The concern may be unfounded. I plan to chat with them about that. A guy I know in TX
  8. I plan to run it also. The first time anyone suggested I consider running FO instead of Cat or in addition to it (to provide a FO option later), it was LC-LC single mode duplex. And no one has poo-poo'd as a poor choice for my network based my particular situation. And, of so c-h-e-a-p. Thank you Jabbr.
  9. Thanks, MarkusBarkus, re: armored. You really fleshed it out for me and others hopefully learning a thing or two from this discussion. Uh, er, Umm. My head is exploding. Not really, but there a few "what do you mean?", "so, what your are saying is". "Wouldn't there be an option, for that?" thoughts flitting about in my head. Kidding aside, it does spur real questions like those I just used for humor. 1. Do I need to order them reversed on one end? If so, one would expect that option to be rather prominently presented along with length and color. And
  10. I did figure the LC designation referred to the connector, but that is all I knew. With respect to stringer shape and SM v MM....I can either ignore those options or maybe discuss it with a phone rep at either of the cable vendors mentioned in my previous post. With SM being so so inexpensive already, the notion that MM could possibly be lower still, seems crazy. “Green it up” Good one! Does either SM or MM have an compatibility advantage in terms of one having a broader universe of reasonably priced switches, converters, power supplies, transceivers, et
  11. MarkusBarkus, Thanks for the vendor, FS.com. The product in your link seems IDENTICAL to the one on Amazon made by Ultraspec cables. Literally looks like the same calbes in every detail based on pics. Spec-wise, same main specs: LcLc, OS2, 9/125.. The spec sheet shown at the FS site has many data points, whereas I will need to contact Ultraspec to inquire about fuller specs. Frankly, I suspect there are industry standards (like in motor oils, for example) but I could be wrong. For example, are all LC to LC 2mm like the one offered by FS.com? I just noticed
  12. 30 Meter Singlemode Duplex Fiber Optic Cable (9/125) - LC to LC - Yellow Brand: Ultra Spec Cables Hopefully my attempt to link a fiber optic cable on Amzn is successful. Will be fishing this cable and Cat 6 from Bluejean--already ordered. This cable was recommended as a good/satisfactory one. Anyone agree? Disagree? Offer alternatives? May never use the fiber, but it will be there if I want to go down that path. BTW, after taking a hard look at the length I need by actually measuring and getting in my at
