I’ve recently begun testing SFP port functionality on a benched 5GHz 450m. When activating the SFP port, I lose all connection to the device until I go through the recovery procedure to reactivate the main Ethernet interface. I can get light and link across the SFP interface and the SFP module we’re using is recognized in the 450m interface and in the Mikrotik CCR I’m using on the other side (although I had to force a 1g negotiation on the 450m for that to work). Poking through the documentation shows the process should be as easy as just turning on the port and getting a link. Please advise.
Firmware version: 18.104.22.168
SFP: Finisar FTLF8519P3BNL 2.5G SFP (And others, this one was the only one to be recognized by the 450m)
Let me know any other information I can provide to clear up any confusion about my situation.
Edit: Specified the frequency of the 450m
