I have 2 Catalyst 3560 PoE-48 Linked with the SFP ports, I was trying to go from another one of the SFP ports to the router a Cisco 2821 using a Gigabit SFP transceiver MGBT1. I am not sure if the transceiver is incompatible with the switch or if I am missing a step to get the transceiver to power up. I am trying to clear some bottle-necks in my LAN to WAN connection. The network currently has the 2 switches to a 2821 router then it was going through another switch (took it out of the system, Fordstar equipment no longer needed at the dealership) then to a 2801. I am thinking I should be able to go straight from the switches to the 2821 and straight to the T1 shelf (3 T1's). Am I way off base or is this reasonable. Any Suggestions?
The SFP device is a Cisco Small Business MGBT1 Gigabit Ethernet 1000 Base-T Mini-GBIC SFP Transceiver. I would say it is a Cisco device but is it a correct device for the 3560 switch or is it incompatible for another reason?
Errrr ... You are half correct. The MGBT1 is a Linksys-branded module. I know that Linksys is owned by Cisco but Cisco has made it a point that no one can buy a Linksys SFP module (which is cheaper) and using it on a Cisco appliance.

I am going to design and build an LAN network under a tunnel underground with long distance between the switches.
I will have 2 Catalyst switches and 8 Industrial IE3000, and they will be connected with fiber.
