    I’d like to connect our 5 ME-1s to an SQ5 via Slink.

    I realise we can connect directly using an ethernet cable, daisy changing the ME-1s and using individual power supplies for each unit.

    My (newbie) question: if we use a switch to provide power, do we connect the ME-1s individually to the switch or do we still daisy chain them together?

    Also if anyone has any switch recommendations to do this it would be much appreciated.

    Would this switch work?

    as mentioned already in the other thread

    it has to be a 100MBit switch and you can’t daisy chain with POE

    Little late to replay,

    but yes, you can do it. I do it. Most switches can do it. BUT very very important. You need to make sure the switch is either 100 megabit (not gigabit). Fountunary a lot of switches allow you to configure each port. We have this This POE Switch and it works great! I was able to go into the configuration and turn the ports in 100 megabits (so the sq can recognize the MEs) and even create a vlan meaning only ports 1-5 can talk to each other and I can use ports 6-8 for anything else and they won’t interfere with each other because nothing else can be plugged into the same network or you will have clicking noises in the sound.
