Do you really get the ability to reset RouterBOARDs connected via the PoE ports? I can't find any mention of this in any documentation - can you provide a link?Or add a RB260GSP [...] You get power consumption monitoring, selective power down/remote reset, wire speed filtering et. al.
Ah, I misread that as a remote configuration-reset akin to pressing the reset button on power-up.You can disable and then enable PoE on a specific port via the switches web interface and thus get your power reset.
Anyone else think this might be a useful feature?Hello,
Don't know if you've read this thread:
It's possible to get a MikroTik Switch (e.g. RB260GSP) to power-cycle a connected RouterBOARD by toggling PoE-out on a switch port.
Could you add a feature to SwOS switches to signal to connected RouterBOARDs that a config-reset (or equivalent of holding down reset button) is required?
One idea could be to drop down to 10baseT mode (to enforce 2-pair communication and ignore negotiation to 100/1000) and use the spare pairs for a mix of PoE (DC) and a custom freq. AC "tone" (e.g. 1KHz)? You could even use one of the spare pairs as a "return" to indicate reset light status (e.g. flashing, steady, off)
You could even make small PoE injectors with "reset-config" feature for people with RouterBOARDs that are hard to access. (Not quite as good as remote reset-config but still very useful!)
don.t have a direct answer for a 433 ...@honzam... Thank you for the response but I have one of those and it still only powers one rb unless I'm doing something wrong.
@Petzl... Thank you too. Do you have a link as to how to do this mod and what is needed.
