Re: Bit confused by the existence of the hAP AC Lite?

Eeyup, there's been plenty models of e.g. tplink AC routers with 100Mb ports because that's what Qualcomm in its infinite genius put in the chipset... another fantastic thing is how many models of SoCs have a max supported size of SPI flash limited to 16MB, which is primary reason many MT devices ha...

Re: RB2011UiAS-2HnD-IN PoE problem

Hi. TL;DR: won't work. The "12V" mention on the Hikvision camera refers to its external power connector only. It uses "standard PoE" (802.3af) for powering via ethernet cable. This runs on 48V and comes with a complex negotiation dance that must be supported by smart-PoE chips in the networking devi...
