    Building POF Home User Network

    Ethernet to POF (fiber ) to connect to my cable modem and HDTV card. It was about $40 on Amazon called a Ethernet Media Converter. So this way it can be struck by lightning and my computer would still be safe. Maybe the local EMP might also do damage but it would definitely make it less likely !

    I am just looking for a way to connect a WIRED 100mb cable modem or HD tuner to POF fiber by using some low cost adapter. I have seen the SFF modules that plug into a network card in a computer or switch. That would take care of the computer side but is there any adapter that plugs into a WIRED 10/100/1000 network to FIBER on the other side ? I can't find one but I am not familiar with business network equipment.I have see that the SFF modules have a Fiber In / Out and an electrical serial +- input and output but since they are using PECL and running a 1GHz speed it wouldn't be as simple as connecting the wires. And since wired network uses several pairs vs just 1 fiber also.So is there a simple wired network to fiber adapter like the kind that plugs into a switch or computer NIC but fo...see more »I am just looking for a way to connect a WIRED 100mb cable modem or HD tuner to POF fiber by using some low cost adapter.

    You should probably add a poly coating to this to protect the board and protect the people using it from lead. A spray coating would probably work. Any chemist or other people that know if the lead would leach through ? I know it was mentioned before but nobody mentioned a solution ! You could also use plexiglass on both sides too.No making decorations from old depleted uranium or plutonium rods you have laying around either. Just make sure you wash your hands after handling them......and don't mind the glow your hands will have at night. It just saves you from needing a flashlight.No if only I could find that core memory I had years ago. It is amazing these things were hand made !
