I need to run several ethernet lines along the outside of buildings - in a lightning-prone area. Tried this once before and got smoking ruin as a reward. What's needed are some kind of converters that will plug right into an ordinary 10/100 ethernet hub, convert the signal to optical that can be sent a hundred meters or so on economical/easy PLASTIC fiber, and then convert back to an ordinary 10/100 TX at the target PC or hub.
Has anyone come across anything like these devices ?
