My VDSL2 modem recently decided to quit its job. Now I am looking for an replacement / upgrade. The privious device was a AVM Fritzbox 7390. I think it is nothing more than a plastic paper weight.
Currently, I am lurking around free hotspots which is not ideal.
I have a Netgear GS724T-400EUS. This is a 24port gigabit switch. It has 2 empty SFP slots. I am not that familiar with SFP, yet. On the internet I found a ALLNET ALL4781-VDSL2-SFP which seems to be a VDSL modem that supports all the current standards including G.993.5 which is essential for my connection to my ISP.
Is SFP meant as plug-and-play solution the way I intend it to use or does my netgear switch need to support that specific card.
If the SFP card is not possible, are there pure modems that you can recommend which support VDSL up to the profile of 35b?
I want to add in a pfsense rackmounted box later, but right now I need working internet connection first and foremost.
