I have a new setup running but I'm trying to figure out the best way to configure some extra ports. I just upgraded from an rpi4 on OpenWRT to an Odroid H2 (not H2+) with the netcard. The H2 has 2 native 1gbe ports and the netcard adds 4, 2.5gbe ports. I also just upgraded my internet service to 1gb and with a Netgear CM2000 modem w/2.5gbe port. So as it sits:
QSW-M408S with several LAN devices on 10gbe SFP ports. With the right transceiver I think I can get the H2 LAN port to 2.5gb to this switch on an SFP port
Odroid H2 w/ 2) 1gbe and 4) 2.5gbe ports. assuming the above, I'll have LAN to switch on 1 2.5gbe port and WAN to modem on another 2.5gbe ports.
I now have 2) 1gbe ports and 2) 2.5gbe ports unallocated on the H2. The QNAP switch has >4 open 1gbe ports and no 10gbe ports left.
Not that I -need- the extra H2 ports but to get some use out of them I see 2 options.....
The QNAP switch supports link aggregation, so do I bond a couple at the switch? Does that add any benefit for multiple ports bonded @ 1gb at the switch? How is that setup on the H2 side?
Set them up as extra LAN ports to be used at the @ 1gb and 2.5gb on the H2 like they were switch ports. How is that setup in OpenWRT? just bridged LAN to the first LAN port?
