Re: Fiber cable without a converter
You're solving a problem you don't have by bridging the LAN ports; and it puts extra processing load on the NIC and router... If you needed greater then 1 gbps, or needed redundancy, that would be a different story.
As for the "RJ45" optical connection; doesn't exactly work like that; need optical tx/rx hardware; you'd either need a gbic of an sfp at both ends (NIC at the PC, the same at the router end.). Again, solving a problem you don't have... Optical is great for long distance; high bandwidth, or electrically noisy environments - none of these sound like they apply to you....
