I have a bit of a problem and before I purchase anything, I was hoping somebody can let me know if this will work or not...
I have a cable modem with a 2.5G port on it. From what I've seen, the 10G ethernet SFP's support this speed. I then have a pfsense box with a couple of gigabit nic's in it. What I want to do is get the full speed of that 2.5G port (well, really 1.5G since that's what I'm provisioned from the provider) over to my pfsense box.
To do this, I'm thinking of putting a CRS305-1G-4S+IN between the cable modem and my pfsense box. Get 3 S+RJ10 SFP's, then create a LAGG group for two of those connections and use the third to the cable modem.
I did a bit of research and I'm presuming the command to do this is "interface bonding add name=P01 mode=802.3ad transmit-hash-policy=layer2-and-3 slaves=ether1,ether2". Would doing this essentially bond ether1 and ether2 together to form a 2gb link from my pfsense box to the switch? Is this the right way to go about doing this or am I totally off?
