I have inserted a Cisco GLC-T 30-1410-02 Module into the SFP+ Port of the Netgear R9000 in order to use it as a normal network port like the others as I don't have SFP+ Devices here. That module should be compatible to the Router as per Netgear.
When I connect a Windows Computer on that port it says "Connected to unidentified network - no network access" and it looks like it is just that no IP address gets assigned.
I tried router restart already, but that did not resolve the issue.
Do I have to adjust some settings in order to make this work? As far as I understood the SFP+ Port is referenced as eth0
The following is the output of ethtool eth0
Settings for eth0:
Supported ports: [ ]
Supported link modes: Not reported
Supported pause frame use: No
Supports auto-negotiation: No
Advertised link modes: Not reported
Advertised pause frame use: No
Advertised auto-negotiation: No
Port: Twisted Pair
Supports Wake-on: umb
Current message level: 0x00000007 (7)
drv probe link
Link detected: yes
I have no issues with a 10G module if it works as well with the RJ45 cables and a Server/PC with 1G network card attached. The one you mentioned is however not available anymore. Are there some other tested ones available?
I just got the Netgear AGM734 and it produces exactly the same issues as the Cisco one. I tend to believe it is something about what devices are accepted by dd-wrt and not the router itself. Not sure if it can be found out which are compatible and which are not other than trial and error?
