Convert SM Fiber to Ethernet

All,

Any recommendations for an inexpensive way to convert a single Mode Fiber handoff to 100Mbps Ethernet?  We have a customer that needs to do a temporary solution before they purchase a Cisco HWIC and Fiber SFP.  I've done a search and found many but wanted to see if anyone has some real experience on which ones work better and which ones to stay away from.

Thanks in advance.  All replies rated!

I'm using a converter by Telco System (2141) and it works pretty good.

Any converter should work. Note they are not much cheaper than cisco parts.

Re: Convert SM Fiber to Ethernet

Thanks.  I hope I am on the right trail.  I am seeing converters for around $100 versus

the HWIC for the 2800 router going for $1000 and the Fiber SFP going for about $600.

Am I not looking at the correct hardware?

  Please see the link below.
