anyone with 2gb connection to your isp .. what type of port is your modem using
looking to future proof my network upgrade . as i run a large firewall and have public ip block
is it using 10gb sfp 10, 2.5 or 5gb copper rj45..
i am just about to pass 1gb and looking to upgrade my main public facing router and would like enough bandwidth for the future .. right now the 1gb 10baset port would be the bottleneck.
i pretty much have it maxed out and can hit about 980gb/sec in speed tests.
from my searching ... i think most higher end routers (that go over 1gb and can handle a large 500 rule firewall with 35K address lists, and bridging) are sfp for the wan port. but most modems are not... so i may have to get a fiber to copper adapter or something.
or are they normal 1gb ports and support link aggregation?
i have orderd the new asus gt-ax11000 pro and plan to use the 10gb port to go to my internanal 10gb switch and the 2.5gb port to go out to my main public facing router..
i don't need multiple a quad channel router as this only provide the 2.4g and one 5gig channel to upstairs (no one currently living upstairs) and the downstairts router connects over coax for the back channel and uses the other 5g and 6g channels..
