Advertisements Hey Guys, so I have a POE switch that has 4 link ports and 2 uplink ports. I'm hooking it up to my existing unmanaged Network switch, which is non-POE. I'd like to know what's the point or significance of these labels? Because no matter the configuration, they all work for me. So I'm not understanding the significance of the ports labeled UP. Here are the scenarios I tried: 1. Ethernet from MOCA adapter goes to the #5 UP port of this POE Switch. Port #1 of this POE switch is then linked to an unmanaged Network Switch. Everything works! 2. Ethernet from MOCA adapter goes to port #1 of the unmanaged Network Switch. Port # 2 of unmanaged switch is connected #5 UP port of POE Switch. Everything works! 3. Ethernet from MOCA adapter goes to port #1 of POE Switch. Port #2 of POE Switch is linked to unmanaged Switch. In this scenario, I didn't even use any of the UP links. Everything works! Are any of these scenarios slower than the other, or may cause issues down the line? BTW, in all the scenarios above, I did not test any connected POE devices such as cameras. I was just testing internet access of my pc and Tivo Stream 4k stick. Would any of the connection scenarios above cause an IP camera dependent on POE to not work? What Is the CORRECT and most efficient way to connect the POE Switch to my network? Thank you in advance!
