Unsupported: SFP

Pages in the unsupported: namespace are intended to deliver general information about an “unsupported” status. They should help users to better understand the reasons and the consequences of this “unsupported”.

Since these pages can be reached via a dataentries of very different devices, the descriptions should be of general nature, or cover all the different devices affected by this “unsupported”. They shall not describe any device specifics.

  1. What does it mean, “SFP is unsupported”?
    • This means that the SFP will not work at all, or at least not work as expected.
  2. What is the reason for the unsupported status?
    • No Open Source driver available for the SFP part of the device.
  3. What consequences does this have in regards to your expectations?

    • Reality: You can not use SFP at all, or not as expected (performance issues, instabilities).
  4. Will this status change over time? If yes, in what timeframe?
    • Dunno, but I could make a wild guess if it's urgent. Search the forum for current support status.
  5. What can you do now?
    • Easy / Short term: Get a device where the SFP part is supported by OpenWrt, see Table of Hardware: SFP ports
    • Hard / Long term: Get the SFP part supported by OpenWrt / Linux
  6. Where can you find more information about current support status?
