Connect AP/switch through another AP

  • 1.  Connect AP/switch through another AP

    Posted 23 days ago
    I have a few AP-335s, an AP-215 and an AP-277 off of my 7010 controller. Due to the wiring available, I can get one AP-335 using PoE off the controller and working as expected but need to extend to another AP (and possibly a small switch). 

    Is it possible to connect one AP through the unused ENET port on an AP-335? I'm thinking a PoE injector would be needed to power the AP. Is it possible to put a PoE switch off of the ENET port and then multiple devices can communicate?

    I'm new to using the additional port on an AP-335. Where in the console/GUI would l look to enable those ports and configure them properly?

    That is unsupported,  unfortunately.

    You can configure the second port of an AP using the method here:

    You can configure the EthernetEthernet is a network protocol for data transmission over LAN. port(s) on mesh nodes to operate in tunnel mode.
