Nighthawk R9000 10Gbps Ethernet connection to ReadyNAS 526x

I'm using a Netgear R9000 Nighthawk X10 WiFi router for my home network, providing Wi-Fi access for a number of devices, and Ethernet connectivity for laptops / MacBooks via Cat7 cabling.

 

I've recently bought a Netgear ReadyNAS 526x (to replace an old NAS), and I was wondering if there was a way to connect the R9000 and ReadyNAS 526x via 10Gbps LAN? (I want to have a fast connection between the NAS and the router, to cope with aggredated data throughput requirements from multiple clients)

 

The reason I'm asking, is that most of the R9000's Ethernet ports are 1Gbps, but it does have a 10Gbps SFP+ port, which appears to require special Netgear Direct Access Cables (DAC) AXC753, AXC761, or AXC763 (according to https://kb.netgear.com/31408/What-SFP-modules-are-compatible-with-my-Nighthawk-X10-R9000-router). However, the ReadyNAS 526X appears to have 'standard' Ethernet connectors for its 10Gbps ports on the rear of the chassis, so I'm wondering if these are physically / electrically compatible?

Here is a white paper about the 10g ports from netgear http://wiki.networksecuritytoolkit.org/images/NETGEAR_Whitepaper_10_Gigabit.pdf

Page 5 should help should help seem that it may be possible with correct cable from what saw.

I hope that this helps.

Yes the ReadyNas 526x has two 10g t based lan ports.

Will look to see if I can find the place to look for yhe cable you would need.

I found a adaptior that do the job https://www.sonnetstore.com/collections/network-adapters/products/sfp-transceiver-10gbaset

There should be other people who make devices like this on the web I hope that makes the project you have in mind work.
