    Introducing the Switch The 2910al-PoE+ Switches also support Power over Ethernet+ (PoE+) technology. PoE+ offers a higher wattage per port than the previous PoE offering, 30 watts per port instead of 15. The switches support 802.3af standard devices and some pre-standard PoE devices. It also supports the draft version of the 802.3at standard.

  • Page 64

    Troubleshooting Basic Troubleshooting Tips Because the switch behaves in this way (in compliance with the IEEE 802.3 standard), if a device connected to the switch has a fixed configu- ration at full duplex, the device will not connect correctly to the switch. The result will be high error rates and very inefficient communications between the switch and the device.

  • Page 65

    Troubleshooting Basic Troubleshooting Tips ■ Check the port configuration. A port on your switch may not be operating as you expect because it has been put into a “blocking” state by Spanning Tree, GVRP (automatic VLANs), or LACP (automatic trunking). (Note that the normal operation of the Spanning Tree, GVRP, and LACP features may put the port in a blocking state.) Or, the port just may have been configured as disabled through software.
