I have to 260GS switches.
One has no POE injects and thus on the main"LINK" menu page does not show any POE settings (an assumption of why it does not show up on this switch).
The second switch is using the supplied POE injector that came with a CAPAC I have.
eth1 is from main panel switch (trunk)
eth2 goes to an un-managed switch (access)
eth3 goes to my capAC (trunk) THIS HAS THE INJECTOR ATTACHED (ethernet from switch port to attachment / attachment has two other ends, one to power and the other an etherport with cable to capac).
eth4 goes to solar panel (access)
eth5 goes to PC (access)
SFP (ready with copper attachment but nothing in it)
I noticed today that there is a POE part of the LINK menu. on this switch.
Two of the ports showed red 'short circuit' and that was port 2 and 4 that go to powered devices. I disabled the POE out and that was fixed.
What I dont understand is the setting for the port 3 that goes to the CAPAC. The injector is providing power down the line to the CAPAC.
The setting on the 260gs for that port is AUTO and the state says "waiting for load"
Q1. Is this normal and if the injector is providing the power to the CAPAC why is the POE menu showing up at all on the switch, the switch is not doing anything (that I know of) ??
Q2. To clarify, the switch is not pOE capable and not putting power down any of the ports???
Q3. Would I be better off attaching the Capac injector dohickey into the SFP copper port instead of port 3?
Q4. Related is that on the POE menu the SFP port has no entries for Auto, Turn off etc.........
