That’s nice, any chance you tested this last year?
Does this work with Balance 20X?
Yes. B20x supported the Ethernet adapter USB WAN feature.
Are there plans in the works to support any USB 3.0 2.5GBASE-T ethernet adapters?
Do you have more use case info that can share ? 2.5GBase-T ? For such high bandwidth link, better to have fiber connection ?
Looking at gigabit-capable DOCSIS modems, many have gone the route of dual GbE ports + link aggregation, though there are some with single 2.5GbE ports in the pipeline. I’ve not had a good look at the field of FTTP ONTs though I know of at least one business-oriented model in use at a friend’s business which does have 2.5GbE ports—unfortunately I don’t have the model number to hand, though if it would help you I can ask him.
What I’m looking at now is trying to be sure my hardware purchases now are reasonably future-proof for these gigabit-capable WAN options as I expect to have them in use in at least two locations within the next year. I’m not considering solo GbE WAN ports for gigabit-class WAN options at the moment, so do I need to look at buying Peplink hardware capable of 802.3ad link aggregation on the WAN side (as I know that will work with the current crop of DOCSIS modems I’ve researched), or can I stick with Peplink hardware without 802.3ad support on the WAN ports but which I could deploy with a 2.5GbE (or 2.5/5GbE) USB 3.0 NIC when we move to gigabit DOCSIS or fibre WAN later this year?
I tried USB/ethernet adapter on a Surf SOHO HW2 and it worked. But on a Balance 20x it did not work. Are there settings that need to be adjusted in the USB WAN definition?
My bad. Did not read whole posting from the beginning. You have to first configure the USB port to work with Ethernet rather than 4G/LTE. After doing this, it worked fine.
