I chose a Netgate SG-1100 security appliance, US-8-150 POE switch, 3 nanoHDs and an CloudKey Gen2. The videos from this web site were a big help. I’m a networking rookie but reasonably computer savvy so am going to try to set this up myself.
A couple basic questions so I can an environment to configure this before installing (also an idea I got here).
I want to leave my existing Netgear Router / WiFi up while i’m working on this new stuff. Can I have the SG1100 connected to a port of the NetGear or does the SG have to be the first thing after my FiOS ONT?
Does the US-8-150 POE switch need to have a port configured to disable POE in order to plug a non-POE device, such as a laptop, into it?
thanks for the assist!
