SRW2008 with a 100Base-FX SFP?

Unanswered Question
Jul 11th, 2010

i got a 100Base-FX SFP from my localloop provider and tried to use it in a Linksys SRW2008 switch.

it seems the SFP ports are fixed to 1000Base. is there a way around this limitation?

thanks for your help.

I have this problem too.

Check  software requirements and configuration requirements in the attached guide.

I think it gives you your answer (I hope )

It suggests you need 1.0.3 software and then try the following;

Manually Configuring the 100M SFP

STEP 1 On the Port Configuration page, click Detail.

STEP 2 In the Port Configuration popup window, select eth 100M in the SFP Speed field.

STEP 3 Save your changes.

STEP 4 Insert the 100M SFP module.

Hope this helps

regards Dave
