Troubleshooting POE150S - LAN in faulty?
I have a Reolink 811A security camera that is powered via POE, using a TP-Link POE150S.
- Day 1: Things worked fine. Router lights on the LAN port lit up when plugged in from the POE adapter, and I could connect to the camera via the Reolink app without issue. The camera also displayed under LAN devices on the router page.
- Day 2: Connectivity was dropping out every couple of minutes... up and down all day.
- Day 3: Can no longer connect to the camera, and I have no light on the router LAN port(s) to indicate data transmission. No longer displays under LAN devices on the router page.
The camera is powered without issue, functions normally, lights up when detecting presence at night, and is saving video to the SD card without issue (I have removed the SD card and checked it on my PC and can view all the video files).
However, I have now not been able to connect to the camera remotely in almost 20 days.
I have tried 3 different cables, and all 4 LAN ports on the router with no change.
The LAN ports do not light up anymore when connected via the POE adapter.
I have tested the cable(s) between my PC and the router, and this works perfectly fine.
I am kinda looking at the POE adapter now, and wondering if the LAN in port is faulty.
Has anyone had a similar issue, or is this kind of thing a common occurence?
Is there any method of testing this to determine whether it's faulty or if the issue lies somewhere else?
Thanks for your time.
