I’ve read pretty much all SFP related threads on the forum but I haven’t gotten that much wiser. It seems to me like there’s at least two known issues.
- Autonegotiating with the ISP seems to be problematic at best
- WAN light, doesn’t seem to indicate SFP activity (or is it just an issue if link isn’t negotiate’able?)
Anyway. My wish is that I’d be able to do away with my Planet GT-805A box that was supplied to me by my ISP (Bahnhof in Sweden) and just have the Omnia terminate the fiber connection. The Planet box has an SFP (one of these: https://portal.prooptix.se/cisco/507-glc-bx-u-1315-20-sc-o-cisco-sfp ) which when placed in the Omnia instead produces a whole lot of absolutely nothing. I have a second SFP (Noname with the same specifications except a different physical fiber connector) which also appears to do nothing useful at all except kill the copper WAN port on the Omnia when inserted.
Is there anything I can do except wait and hope the software situation will eventually improve?
