Trying to get the connection from the SFP output of my Edge Router X-SFP to a Sonore Optical module then Ethernet to my Bricasti M21 to see each other. While I can see ‘light’ coming through the cable, the Bricasti and Router fail to handshake. I have rebooted the router and the Bricasti in many sequences all to no avail.

I am not an expert and have no idea why the Ethernet cable only connection would work but when I use the SFP output and Sonore OM, it doesn’t.

Maybe u are mixing MM and SM modules or u have the correct modules but the incorrect type of fiber cable (again SM or MM cable)

Thank you for your reply. The modules and fiber were purchased as part Sonore’s System Optique. While you may be right, I went with their recommendation.

Bricasti says it should work fine.

I am stumped. But happy enough using the Ethernet connection through my Gigafoil v4 so this is not a big deal.

Good one!
I still haven’t figured out why it’s not working so it all sits in a box.

Sometimes the SFPs need an extra push to get them to fully seat.
