OK... I'm a fiber / optical networking newbie so I apologize well in advance if my vocabulary is way off in this post... but here goes...
I wanted to upgrade our old 10/100 cisco switches (Catalyst 3500) to something gigabit so I bought some SRW2048s. I'm trying to connect them over our existing multimode fiber (terminated in ST connectors) but they won't link. I bought MGBSX1s to accomplish this task and some LC-ST fiber cable to make the connection. I think I have the ST connections right... on one end it's red/black (for Tx/Rx) for the two ST connectors, and on the other end it's black/red (Rx/Tx). Is there anything I need to do to the switch to make it work right?
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
