Test #1

BOM

Results

Converters are configured with DIP switches all in OFF position (LFP (link failure propagation) disabled, store-and-forward switching, 1Gig FX)

Connecting two laptops directly with static IPs work, 1Gig network is achieved successfully.

Connecting laptop to home network gives an unreliable link that drops very quickly.

Possible problems

  • Too strong of a signal on the fiber link, 20km transcievers on 10m fiber with no attenuation
