Re: cabling and conector help for router

Firstly, you need Single-Mode fibre.

Do you need a media converter? Depends on your router. If you don't have an SFP port in your router, you can either get the HWIC-1GE-SFP (plus the SFP module) or you could get a pair of media converters.

Hope this helps.
