Anyone familiar with ST Fibre networking?
Our two buildings are connected via fibre patch panel which connects to the st fibre tx and rx ports in RX modules added to two 3com 24 port hubs. One has died (power supply) and I need to reconnect.
I have a startech media converter 100 Base FX which does not detect fibre connection to the 3com hub.
Also a 3com fibre converter TR, no light but no signal through.
Connected Rx to Tx and vice versa both cables.
Am awaiting a delivery off 3com switches from ebay.
2 X 3C16901A - 12 port switch
3 x 3C16902 inc 3C16920 - 24 port
Anyone know if the existing rx modules can be taken out and use in the new switches?
I am assuming Rx and Fx converters are incompatable. Am considering ordering another startech converter as backup. Anyone ever used 3com switches for fibre connections can advise if I should order or if they should take them ok?
