Can you extract the SFP module from the Wingo box?

Herein lies the question. They're much cheaper than competitors around my neck of the woods but I have a very good router and a Unifi AP I'd like to use instead of their box.


Can I extract the SFP module from their box and pop it into my MC220L media converter? Or do I have to buy my own SFP module to plug into the media converter?


Anyone with Wingo fiber? Are you satisfied with the service? I don't care about TV or phone, I just want internet.

According to themselves it should work for fibre (except fixed line phone), few settings to adjust.

Thanks, I read this page but I don't understand if I have to buy the SFP module or if it's extracted from their box and re-used in the media converter.

Well. As far as I can see, there are 2 models of the wingo router, which is a kind of castrated swisscom router. Wingo is owned by Swisscom.
Both have an SFP slot and a common and regular, removable SFP module. My guess is this is a common 1Gbit module that will work also with other routers or your TP-Link MC220L.

They mention it would work in any case with a "TP-LINK TL-SM321B" in your TP-Link MC220L.
This is a very affordable module for just 30CHF, so not a major obstacle:
