PoE LAN connection on MARK IV


Recommended Posts

I did not find any reference to PoE on the Mark IV forum.

I accidentally plugged Ethernet cable from a MacBook Pro Thunderbolt port to the PoE Ethernet connection on my Mark IV. Can doing this damage the Pineapple Mark IV or the Macbook Pro Thunderbolt connector? The Mark IV is only powered by a wall adapter.

The PoE should be powering the Mark IV, eliminating the need for a battery pack or wall power adapter, correct [with a power injector]? There should not be power going to the Macbook Pro or the Pineapple as long as there is no power injector inline?

I have a Mark V, but pulled my Mark IV from storage to test something. I am not getting communication between the Mac and the Pineapple Mark IV, it may be I just left the Mark IV in a misconfigured state, and that is the reason I can not communicate. I do not have any other Ethernet devices availabel for a few days to verify it's not the MacBook.
