So I bought a POE switch to clean up some cabling. The primary device is a TP-Link Access Point. Before buying these products I checked the specs and it would appear the POE switch should power the AP, but it does not? See specs and device info below.
I checked the POE switch with a POE camera to make sure it worked, and it did. I then plugged in the AP to the switch, and the AP did not power up. I double checked all connections, etc., but still no go. The AP does work when powered with the provided passive power supply.
Am I missing something obvious?
Thanks for any help.
