Poe splitter works fine
#1
Hadn't seen anyone else post a success story on the POE splitter yet so I thought I would do so.  I have a Netgear POE switch and have successfully booted the pine64+ headless using the backer-kit offered splitter with the longsleep Ubuntu image.

This one: https://shop.pine64.com/collections/acce...e-splitter ?

Am I'm blind or are there any specs missing? Which speed is this negotiating?

tkaiser I think the POE splitter is not capable of gigabit.

really need specs on the pine shopping site. it looks a lot like this but without model info...

Drewh does your POE give any info as to manufacturer and/or model etc?

Confirmed. How lame if you have in mind what I proposed back in Dec already: http://forum.pine64.org/showthread.php?t...168#pid168

If it's 100 Mbits/sec only they could've routed the 2 cable pairs that are unused when using Fast Ethernet for passive PoE already to DC-IN and no one needs to spend insane $10 on this.

model shows as LS-POE-B0525, no other real information.  The comment about gigabit may be valid, I will test without the splitter in my environment to see it it will then correctly see gigabit connection, currently it is connecting at 100 base.

addendum: the splitter does seem to limit connection to 100 speed, powering from a different source, with the splitter not being present, it detects GB speed.

Hey Tllim you may want to have your Sales Site people get that note on the adapter ASAP or get the specs posted if they contradict what we are seeing here. Otherwise you have something else people are going to want to return.

Please advise clearly on the action item. If the claim is lacking the spec, we will translate from the original Chinese version and post up. This is a 100Mbps PoE, not Gigabit, this is also not the one that somebody claimed same as eBay one.

Action item is merely get the specs or links to them posted for items in the store. It would help prevent confusion, frustrations and most important for you, returns.

They really like returns. Otherwise they would start to think from a backer's/customer's perspective and improve documentation/information.

Noted and appreciate on the advise, I will ask the KS team to post more detail info.
