Hi all, n00b here
So I just bought a new flat with cabling and stuff already crammed in walls, stuck with Cat5e CCE cables, at least gigabit tested and working.
A quick recommendation on what minimum router and switch I need for my scenario would be greatly appreciated.
Basically I have 2 gathering points:
1. Entrance with WAN and 5 ethernet cables going to different rooms plus planning to put DVR and stuff in there, 5xGigabit + 4-5x 100m would be sufficient
2. "Lab room" with a bunch of PCs (not gonna be more than 5 IMO) - 10 gigabit would rock, at lease in this one room, if by miracle anything over gigabit works on my cat5e then really would like to have
Looking at models got little confused, for example RB2011iLS-IN says it needs 1.25gb SFP but compatibility table lists many 10G SFP transcievers such as S+31DLC10D compatible but not S+RJ10 which looks like my only hope (no drilling and optical cabling please). So do devices which have SFP port but not SFP+ support anything over 1.25g?
As an example, if I get an EB2011iLS-IN for entrance, CRS305-1G-4S+IN for lab and connect them with SFPs what's going to be maximum router-to-switch bandwidth?
