Do I have this right?

enter image description here

Not shown is the Wireless Bridge is aimed at an outdoor WAP across the yard, which is connected to a router, WAN, etc. I just want to see if I have it right on the receiving end w.r.t. powering the devices. I guess I've never "joined" two PoE devices without a switch before but it seemed feasible. Or do I need a switch?

This question appears to be off-topic. The users who voted to close gave this specific reason:

  • "NE is a site for to ask and provide answers about professionally managed networks in a business environment. Your question falls outside the areas our community decided are on topic. Please visit the help center for more details. If you disagree with this closure, please ask on Network Engineering Meta." – Ron Maupin
If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

  • Unfortunately, questions about home networking and consumer-grade devices are explicitly off-topic here. – Ron Maupin Aug 16 '16 at 4:26
  • A bit elitist and overbearing, but that's your call. FYI I read a near identical "where to ask" in Meta and it said to ask here. Also, your assumption (correct or not) that I'm not a professional is premature and insulting. Finally, what "consumer grade devices" were mentioned? – bcsteeve Aug 16 '16 at 4:45
  • If you read in the help center, it explains what is on- or off-topic here. Home networking is explicitly off-topic: "(Note: All questions about RESIDENTIAL/HOME networking and CONSUMER-grade equipment, are explicitly OFF-topic.)" This was decided by the community at the inception of this site. You can protest in Network Engineering Meta. Super User does a very good job of supporting home networking, and many engineers here participate there. – Ron Maupin Aug 16 '16 at 4:49
  • Again, this is not regarding "CONSUMER-grade equipment". Your own quoted criteria states it is off topic IF TWO conditions are met. It doesn't say "RESIDENTIAL/HOME networking or CONSUMER-grade equipment", it says "and". An engineer should understand the distinction. All the equipment in this discussion is enterprise grade. – bcsteeve Aug 16 '16 at 16:24
  • The proper place to discuss this is Network Engineering Meta. This has come up before. The community has consistently voted this topic down. See this answer on meta. Super User does a good job of supporting home networking, and NE was created to separate business networking from home networking. – Ron Maupin Aug 16 '16 at 16:27

Yup, just plug the "LAN" ports of the injector bricks together, leaving the "POE" ports connected to the respective equipment. Should work fine, it does on my network.
