Anyone know how the jumpers need to be set in new routerboard 532?

it's written on the board, select between two positions "12V" or "48V", there are no other jumpers to worry about.

Which one is for POE? JP3 or JP4? Also should the open pin be on 48V if you want to use 48V? Or should the open pin be on 48V if you want to use 12V?

Thank You

there is only ONE jumper (well two, but it's a pair) on the device, 12V or 48V, the rest is automatic. You have to find out what voltage you will have, and set it to the appropriate value.

Normunds, the quick setup guide I got with the last RB532 R5 is misleading regarding the jumpers, although the title definitely states "ROUTERBOARD 500r5":
It still says:
The board has 2 jumpers for configuring input voltage range and one for disabling PoE controller.
(A bit below the middle of the first page of the quick setup guide.)

I suppose that's where the confusion comes from (I was thinking about it for some seconds, too...).

where did you get that document, if it's not made yet?

Huh?
What do you mean? I pulled it from the box with the latest RB5232 (hardware r5) I got. Do you want me to fax it to you? ;-)

Then CMIT probably saw the future. :?
Or someone was wrong. :oops:

Hmmm, Normunds, that file (you ARE talking about http://www.routerboard.com/pdf/rb500r5mG.pdf, right?) is exactly the one I have here on paper from my latest order containing a RB532r5.

But nevermind...

If someone else needs some fortune-telling services, don't hesitate to contact me :lol: 8) ...

It's very strange, as I only made the pictures like a few hours before you posted
