Re: 6.23 released!

I didnt have much time for testing, but I think there is some problem:
Android phones and Planshets can't connect to VirtualAP. There wasn't such a problem in 6.19 and 6.22
Maybe anyone can confirm and give a solution?

Re: 6.22 released!

For greater clarity I must say I use only few features - VirtualAP, WPA/WPA2, PPTP VPN, some basic scripts with e-mailing.. But I want to ask - why there is wireless and wireless-fp packag...

Re: POE over 4 wires (2 pair)

I'll try to explain what I would do in that situation.. MT Gigabit PoE adapters work both ways - as injector and as well as splitter. You can use 2 pairs to transmit power and data, but crimp connector to pins 4,5,7,8. Recrimp both Gigabit PoE injectors (or build adapters - RJ45 jack <-> RJ45 connec...

Re: mAP 802.3af support

And do not be surprised when af pass-through won't powering chained af device because two devices exceeds PSE power limits.
I think mAP PoE out is useful only as replacement for MT PoE injector to power some SXT or something like that outdoors.

Re: RB260GSP is it giga POE OUT?

Gigabit passive injectors use a transformer on the data pins to allow power and data to share the cable and is typically compatible with 802.3af Mode A. So there is a possibility that these switches could power such a 802.3af device. I say - MT switch or router Gigabit PoE output not compatible wit...

Re: RB260GSP is it giga POE OUT?

IMHO it's not tehnically dificult to add PoE to gigabit port so it will be silly, if MT limit port to 100mbit when using PoE.
But because it's not 802.3af or at standart PoE, it can't be used for IP cams or IP phones. It can only supply another (MT) Gigabit (and 100Mbit) device with passive PoE input.
