Meraki support told me that as long as my APs are powering they are receiving enough power. This turns out to be untrue for many models as @PhilipDAth has written in another post.
Oddly, the AR42 pulling 106.9mbit in this image is using an adapter from Cisco that can output 30W. Images:
The power adapter looks like this:
The voltage/amperage math gets us to 30W. Why would this power adapter not provide 802.3at? I swapped it for a PoE+ adapter which does supply at but really this should do it, no? I have also seen a number of adapters with wildly different voltages and amperes where the math works but the ratio is much higher. Any problems there?
