Why "ENET 0" Port cannot be used as a downlink port?

  • The Aruba Instant ON APs doesn't support connecting downlink devices to "ENET0"
  • ENET0” is always considered as the uplink port.

  This function is applicable for all the below scenarios:

  1. “ENET0” Port of a Mesh Point AP which is set up in "private network mode"
  • Once the AP becomes a Mesh Point, The “ENET0” port will become unavailable.
  • In this case, If we try to connect a Device to the “ENET0” port, The AP will start rebooting.
  • The AP reboots automatically as it considers the uplink port as active(ENET0) and tries to find the network through that link.

  • The Only AP which supports Downlink device connectivity is AP-11D.
  • AP-11D has 3 additional LAN ports—E1, E2, and E3 respectively.
  • These ports can be used to connect additional devices in the network.1.png

     

    NOTE: The 'ENET0" port of AP-11D doesn’t work even if the Uplink is over the air (applicable for both Mesh Point and AP connected in a “Router AP” mode)
