I am on my last nerve: I just finished installing an Edgerouter X and it completely shut down my TL-SG1016PE, so I had to factory reset it and then install the smart utility configuration to fix it - which was ridiculous, I literally couldn't use the 192.168.0.1 to access it. Anyway..
When I finally had everything fixed my PoE no longer gives power to my two access points, when they were before, so I don't want to hear that they are the wrong standard or any of that (which is what every other TP link "Help" or FAQ has implied or stated.
How do I either force it to initiate the handshake or manually supply power?
I log on and go: PoE > PoE CONFIG > Port 1 and 2 > PoE Status = Enabled > PoE Prioirity = High > Power Limit = Auto > Power Status = OFF (I have no control over power status).
