Connection of devices

Connect devices to the ports of the switch using a network cable (check the Datasheet for more information).

WSG05POE 2019

Please plug the power supply into the switch. When the switch is power on, the power indicator will be light on on the front panel of the switch shines.

Network Connection

Connect your devices (computer, router, switch, etc.) to the ports with a CAT-5/CAT-5e/CAT-6 network cable. Since the switch supports Auto MDI/MDI-X, you can use either a straight or crossed network cable.

Switch connection to the PSE (Power Source Equipment)

The 1 port of the switch has PoE power device function, you only need to connect the switch PD (Power Device) port directly connected to the PSE port by network cable. It achieves more flexible network applications like this, and it doesn't require external power adapter.

Switch connection to the PD

The 2-5 ports of the switch have PoE power supply function, the maximum output power up to 30W each port, it can make PD devices, such as internet phone, network camera, wireless access point work, you only need to connect the switch PoE port directly connected to the PD port by network cable.

Use an external power adapter (48-52V 1.5A 80W External Power) when you connect non-PoE router to the PD port.

Application examples

  • Standalone PoE switch:

  • PoE Extender:


Multiple PoE Extenders can be connected every 100 meters to obtain greater distances.

WSG08POE/WSG16POE

All the ports have PoE power supply function.

WSG24POE

1-24 ports have power supply function (see the Datasheet for the max power output).

Switch login (WSG24POE)

Check that the IP address of the PC is within the range of the default IP address of the switch (192.168.2.XXX).

  • Default IP address: 192.168.2.1
  • User name: admin
  • Password: admin

Troubleshooting

If Link indicator does not light up after making a connection, make sure that:

  • the network interface, network cable, or switch port is not damaged or defective
  • the proper cable type is used and its length does not exceed specified limits (see the Datasheet)
  • cable is plugged into both the switch and a PoE Powered Device

If the Power indicator does not turn on when the power cord is plugged in, make sure that the power outlet or the power cord is not damaged.

Make sure that you use standard RJ-45 cables. Cables that does not meet the standards of the sequence of data may slow down the data transmission speed or even block it.
