So I still have 100/100 service and the old Alcatel-Lucient ONT (with the R1000H - but I'm not using that). I took away the R1000H a long time ago and replaced it with a PfSense box tagged on VLAN35. This has been working perfectly for years. I'm thinking about upgrading to Gigabit soon, since it's only $10 more than 100mb at this point...
Will they force me to upgrade to the HH3000? Is the old ONT capable of gigabit speeds if I explain to them I don't need the HH3000? The ethernet coming out of the ONT is indeed gigabit, but that doesn't mean it can pull (or push) gigabit speeds.
If I do need the HH3000 and pick up a TP-Link MC220L, is the only thing I will need to do is swap the SFP Stick from HH3000 into the MC220L and ensure VLAN35 remains tagged? I've been reading that there is also a PPPoE login that I will need to put into PFSense.. Is that true? The current (old) ONT setup I have now doesn't need any PPPoE logins. Also, does the MC220L need any configuration or is it just a dumb SFP--->Gigabit converter?
