My digital audio chain:
- computer → switch with SFP port → fiber-> opticalModule → microRendu (upgraded) → RME ADI-2 DAC
does not work at best if I feed it 1Gb/s. On the other hand, I want 1Gb/s for rest of computer (internet speed tests gives me 500Mb/second).
The best solution would be to upgrade opticalModule to the new delux version, but for now I have added another NIC in my computer like this:
1 Built in NIC on motherboard connects to ISP
2 Separate NIC (PCIe) runs through an MFC and then opticalModule, streamer and DAC.
I run 1 above at 1Gb/s and 2 at 100Mbit/sec (NIC settings in Windows 10) and have gotten it to work with a Windows Network Bridge, but not flawlessly.
Is there any better way to fix this?
