The fiber optic cable's connected to the, sc connector, the sc connector's connected to the ..?

post #1 of 22

Good afternoon all,

Just moved into a new apartment. There's what looks like a fiber optic cable with a single mode SC connector at the end of it sticking out of the wall. Potentially daft question, can I connect it directly to a router or modem, or do I need an adapter?

Thanks in advance.

For anyone wondering what the title is about.

That is interesting. An apartment with a fiber optic cable?

 

Are there two connectors or just one?

 

Is there light emitting from the end of either fiber (don't look directly into the light)?

 

Could you snap a pic too?

Well, I'm still not convinced (principally because fiber optic has yet to rolled out to New Brunswick, at least that is what I thought). And to answer your questions; just the one connector, which itself is odd, and there is no light emitting from the fiber (currently no ISP either however).

Hmm. Probably not internet if there is just one. 

 

Could it possibly be a toslink connector?

 

How big is your complex?

Landlord said the previous tenant had fiber optic installed. Still, that doesn't mean anything. Added image.

Love your avatar. I may steal it! tongue.gif

 

I was thinking about that, but I don't know how much good that will do... 

Plus, wouldn't there have to be at least two in order for the internet to work?

Doesn't look like a TOSLINK
They have a rectangular head.
