    Extended Run Help

    Used several cameras from Andy - same results. All work fine with the midway run about 150ft; then all three have power no video signal at roughly 300ft. That is why I mentioned the MikroTik PoE extender but no luck with that either. I am wondering if an outdoor switch would help.

    PoE Switch Suggestion List

    I’d love to see a 24 or 48 POE/POE+ gigabit unmanaged switch. And I mean every port is a gigabit. One day I hope cameras will be able to push a gig.

    Even when you read and read the Wiki you still may have questions that have been asked before. Everyone on the forum has been very kind to me over the years. Big thanks again and Happy Father's Day. I just lost my 91 year old dad last week so this Father's Day is extra special. Thanks again!
