Yesterday I installed my new DAP-2610 at home, the firts thing I did was install OpenWRT.
The D-Link Web interface it looks like a web page from 90's (old and confusing), but that's not the point.
The AP is working great (a least for the last 24 hours), but I would like to get some information about the PoE. My AP is connected to a TP-Link switch PoE, but the switch gives no information about PoE connections/power consumption..... it's a very very basic switch.
Is there any way from my AP to get some info about the PoE consumption/information....?
Necro-answering this post, because I'm looking at this device myself right now: The datasheet specifies its PoE input as IEEE 802.3af (which, more specifically, means that passive 24V like for example the EdgeRouter X delivers, will not work with it.)
Hi @takimata my DAP-2610 is connected to TL-SG108PEv2 switch, and after more than 6 months both are working great (switch and AP).
The switch info can be found here https://www.tp-link.com/en/business-networking/easy-smart-switch/tl-sg108pe/v2/
The "problem" is I have no way in switch/AP to check how PoE is working.
Sorry, I don't get it: Your switch puts out 802.3af, your DAP-2610 needs 802.3af. The power supply matches the requirement (and 802.3af is a standard you can look up if you're interested in voltages and wattages). What more do you need to check?
Edit: Oh, power consumption? See @mk24's answer below. Also, the DAP-2610 can be powered by a 12V/1A power supply theoretically supplying 12 watt at maximum output. Given that PSUs are never driven at maximum output, it's not unreasonable to estimate that the real consumption is quite a bit less than that. I don't know if it's worth investing in additional gear just to find out if the DAP-2610 in the end needs 5, 7, or 9 watts in regular operation.
Edit²: The Fritz!Box 4040, a comparable device with IPQ4018 chipset, has been measured at around 4.5W in idle and 6.7W when transmitting.
Neither of those have any hardware features to measure actual power consumed. The SG-108PE is disappointing that it doesn't even report power requested on its user interface, or have a way to shut down the PoE on a port.
Without going to a much more expensive switch about all you could do is plug the SG108PE into an energy monitor and see how much the wattage increases when the AP is plugged in.
Fully agree, as very basic switch is working fine, but you get 0 info/control about something plugged on it.
I'll have to buy a new one.
@takimata @mk24 Thanks for your help and time!!!!
