i have set up a brand new Ubiquiti 16 port POE switch, where the first 8 ports on the left are designed to automatically detect POE devices. I’ve tried plugging in a POE Ubiquiti wifi antenna and it doesn’t detect it, i’ve also tried plugging in a G4 Bullet camera, also doesnt detect it.
Could you guys give me any clues as to how to get the POE to activate on the switch plz?
ps: i know the antenna works as when i plug in a POE adaptor and then run it into the switch (into one of the non-POE ports which are numbered 9 - 16), the antenna boots up and provides super fast internet to almost the entire neighbourhood lol, but it just wont give it power when it’s plugged straight in. Whilst the Antenna is running through a wall plate, the camera is not. So i dont think it’s the wall plate that’s the issue.
Any advice would be handy, so that i can try to work out why the cameras at least aren’t being powered, as i will soon have them all set up around the yard.
