I recently purchased a TL-SG1008 and the instructions mention that it should be used with the bottom side down. However, I would like to know if it can be mounted vertically, with the entry ports facing up and the power cable facing down. I have a solution for mounting it firmly, but I am concerned if there are any potential issues with using it in this orientation. Would appreciate any advice.

Hey

 

I can safely say there will be no issue with whatever direction you want to mount the switch, after years doing field installs.. trust me I have seen some VERY strangely mounted stuff!

 

The only concern you may have is to make sure the plastic clips on the plugs (rj45) are engaging / locking in correctly.   Seen the weight of the cable pull these out when the clips are broken
