I have a 3 floors city house.
ground floor = storage
1st floor = main room
2sd floor = bedrooms
I have got tmobile thuis glassfiber installed 2 weeks ago.
The modem with glass fiber connection (WAN + SFP) (VIGOR 2132FVN WIRELESS GLASVEZEL ROUTER) has been installed into the electrical cabinet on the ground floor. As such all the possible LAN connections are only reachable from the electrical cabinet. So this is not practical at all.
On the first floor, a wifi repeater has been installed (fritz). the coverage of this device is okish for the first floor. Although it is a shame to pay for a 750Mbps abonnement and have only access to 20-80Mbps via the wifi in the main room... but beyond the coverage, i cannot plug any network cable to this repeater.
But where the installation is really limiting is about having wifi on the second floor. there is hardly any signal on the second floor.
so all in all, i would like to get some recommendations about hardware modification / change to do for maximizing the use of the glassfiber abonnement.
Can a WAN / SFP to RJ45 converter be installed into the electrical cabinet? and then can a modem-router (with wifi feature) with a regular LAN input instead of the WAN / SFP input be provided by T-mobile so that i can install it on the first floor (and hence have several network connections available, wifi strength of a stand alone modem-router? ultimately i would install the wifi repeater on the second floor.
if this is not possible, could you please advise otherwise?
by the way, i cannot install the current modem-router on the first floor since i only have 1 RJ45 cable going from the electrical cabinet to the 1st room. I do not want to install a glass fiber cable instead.
thanks in advance for the advises!

Yes you can install a media convertor to switch from fiber to Ethernet and install a Router like the TP-Link Acer C7 on the ethernet cable. i use this device and got a good coverage and 450Mbit on WiFi. I made a topic about it. The "downside" is you lose the phone landline.
If you have any questions Please ask :)
There is a possibility to use VLANS so you only need one cable. but i advice the TP-Link. Also it is not possible to get 750Mbit on WiFi.
