I want a clarification on the shared port in FGR-60F. WAN-1 & SFP-1 are shared ports and similarly WAN-2 & SFP-2 are shared ports. So is there any way to remove the sharing port feature and use all as an individual port?
Additionally, It will be help to elaborate more on purpose of Share Port concept & reason?
Shared / Mixed-mode ports are very common in network infrastructure. It's one PHY with two physical connection options.
This is useful in the case where customers might have a Fiber WAN connection and require an SFP or maybe they have a Cable WAN connection and only need RJ45. This way customer with RJ45 requirement does not need to buy a transceiver.
There is no way to use both ports at the same time—it is a single PHY.
