Or they expect us to call the maker. I know Cisco. I know they have engineers and a better level of technicians standing by to answer technical questions. Did you call and ask?
Here's the dilemma. I've got a 3Com 10 port managed POE switch were using to connect to wireless APs in a school I give some volunteer support to. We've 8 ports in use with APs and one is used to link with the router. We have a potential need to add 2 more APs but, with 9 in use, we're one port short. I have POE injectors but would prefer to connect to this switch because we turn it on and off separately from the other network devices. This POE switch has an SFP port. BTW, the model # is 3CDSG10PWR-US. Can I buy a module to fit this port that allow me to plug the Ethernet cable from the router into it and gain use of all 10 POE ports? These modules come in many forms and some are quite pricey. The manual for the switch doesn't get into this sort of detail. I guess they expect folks who buy these to know how to use them. TIA
