I am trying to get a AXIS M3007-P surveillance camera to work with Power over Ethernet.
Connected to a D-Link DGS-1210-10P PoE Switch the camera just works perfectly fine.
However, the D-Link Switch is not available where the camera is going to be mounted, so I tried several PoE-Injectors amongst them
- ZyXEL PoE-12HP v2 PoE Injector
- SonicWALL 01-SSC-5546 PoE Injector 802.3AF Gigabit N
- LevelOne POI-3000 Gigabit High Power PoE Injector
- DIGITUS DN-95102 PoE Injector 100 MBit/s IEEE 802.3af
and some cheaper no-name ones. It's always the same picture: The camera LEDs say there is power (obviously) but no ethernet connection.
The data cables going to any of the PoE-injectors ran through a small desktop-sized unmanaged Netgear Switch and then to the very same managed Switch the D-Link PoE Switch is connected/uplinked to.
I've tried the same as well as different cables just to make sure I don't have a faulty cable in my setup.
To be honest I've no idea, not even a clue, what is going on here?
Any suggestions, please?
Note: There is no crossover cable involved at all. However, the RJ45-jack at the cameras cable is wired in tia-568a mode and all the other cables are wired in tia-568b. As far as I know this should not be any problem, as long as the two standards are not mixed within the two ends of one cable?
