WFS709TP netgear Wireless Switch
A few questions on this product if any one has it .
1.) They state 16 AP's per switch . As it only has 8 ports , i imagine i can either directly wire these in direct to the netgear wireless switch or have additional access points around the school connected via a normal switch ( obviously connects back to the main network) But loose the POE function ?.
2.) Im also assuming if i use multiple WFS709TP , i can have one that is the "master" and all the rest run off this ?
Ive read the manual , they seem to over complicate everything and i imagine its a lot more simpliar than it sounds ?

You are correct about connecting the APs, but PoE function will not be lost and yes, 1st controller would be master and 2nd/3rd would be slave or secondary.
Hope this helps

Luke because some of the AP's will be connected through other switches ( which then connect back the the core switch ) i assumed they would loose the POE fucntion as they wont be directly connected to the POE port.
