AP-367 Wireless Mesh with AP-318

Hi there, I would like to check for Wireless bridging between AP-367 and AP-318. 

 

AP-367 (Mesh Portal) --- Mesh --- AP-318 (PoE with ETH0 as downlink) -- 2530 8Port PoE.

 

Is the above scenario doable? AP-318 will be using ETH0 as both downlink and PoE to power it up.

 

Thanks.

Thanks for the extra clarity, that the 315 will be a PD and not a PSE. You are correct, the 315 can take power via POE even while operating as a mesh point. It does NOT have the ability to be a PSE on the wired port.

Thanks, I was referring to AP-318. In that case, I can use POE injector to power up AP-318 as a mesh point. Then I can connect the same POE injector Data port to the 2530 as downlink. Correct?

Re: AP-367 Wireless Mesh with AP-318

That should work fine, just note if the 2530 is POE only and is not 802.3at, you will need to disable POE on the 2530, otherwise the power injector will just pass through the POE from the switch and the AP will not power up.
