PoE In, Hex Lite

Wed Nov 21, 2018 5:12 pm

Hi, I have a HEX lite with PoE In on the Ether1 interface.

I have connected the Ether1 interface to a PoE port on my Netgear switch and the HEX Lite does not turn on.

I've tried it with a HEX and either.

The netgear switch is compatible with 802.2af, with a maximum of 15w per port.

Would anyone know how to tell me why they do not light the Mikrotik?

Thank you.

Passive only and 24v at that. I thought Netgear "only" did 48v PoE
