Note: Ensure that both devices have the same
model number and are running the same
firmware version. The radiation pattern and
wireless protocol of the DAP-3712 is designed
for high-performance bridge connectivity. Using
different models or models with mismatched
firmware versions may cause problems, such
as performance degradation or a reduction in
coverage area.

Powering the Access Point

To power the DAP-3712, use a standard Ethernet
cable to connect the PoE port on the DAP-3712

Cable Requirements
Use a CAT 5 cable with an even sheath. The
Ethernet ports on the DAP-3712 access point
cannot accept a CAT 5 cable that has an uneven
sheath; the RJ-45 connector on the cable will
not fit properly into the receptacle on the
access point.

Use an Ethernet cable to connect the LAN
port on the DAP-3712 to the PoE Out port
