This is my first attempt at a fiber link so pardon my stupidity if I have missed something basic.
I have to extend my network to an outside cabinet. To do this I have bought a HP mini GBIC for my HP pro curve switch, a pre fabricated 100m fiber cable with LC connectors and a TP Link MC220 media converter and TP Link mini GBIC. On the media converter I have all lights green which according to the manual tells me that I have power, a fiber connection, a network connection and the last light is flashing meaning there is data.
When I attach a PC to the media converter directly or through an unmanaged switch I cannot connect to the network.
Am I missing something here? I have set the media converter to auto as per manual and have also tried forced mode.
Any help or suggestions greatly appreciated
