What’s Inside

PARTS LIST: AF-Lightning



That’s all you’ll need.

General Installation

Your new PoE switch is designed to be simple to install and set up. You should only need at most a Philips head screw driver. To power it on, plug the power cable in the back.

Since this is an IEEE 802.3at (PoE+), you can just start plugging devices into it to eight PoE ports on the left hand side marked 1 through 8.

Ports 9T and 10T are the Gigabit uplink ports where you connect back to your router or main network switch. Ports 9S and 10S are for Small Form-factor Pluggable (SFP) fiber optic ports. If you’re not familiar with fiber optic connections, you can leave the little plastic plugs installed.
