Originally I bought a 5 port POE switch that put out 55 watts, link below, it has 4 normal ports and a uplink port. Someone convinced me that this switch was not powerful enough to power 4 of my cameras. So I reluctantly bought an 8 port POE switch that has 123 watts, link below, but I didn't realize at the time of purchase that the new 123 watt 8 port POE switch does not have an uplink port. My cameras only need 11 watts or so each so I'm sure there's plenty of power but how does the switch communicate with the router without a uplink port?
