Hi all - please advise if it's possible to use WAN port 4 (which has PoE) on an MX85, to connect an MR46 AP ?
I was not aware that the MX85 LAN ports are not PoE so looking for options. I connected it up and while the AP had power, the port showed as disconnected. Would also wonder how I'd have to set up the IP if this is viable ?
If this is not possible I guess a power injector would be my next step.
To power a Meraki MG cell gateway without the need for an injector, AC adapter, or PoE switch. Makes for a clean single cable option when using the cell gateway. And with a MX HA design WAN 2 from each MX can connect to the two ports on the MG41 giving both PoE redundancy as well as data path redundancy.
I think some CradlePoints can also be powered via PoE so the MX85/95/105 could also work with those deployments.
