I have three APs, one UAP-AC-IW and two UAP-AC-LITE. I have a Netgear Smart Managed Plus Switch, mainly for VLANs with plenty of open ports. I need to either add an unmanaged POE switch or a POE injector for the APs. Is there any benefit to having each AP plugged into the managed switch through the POE injector over each AP plugged into the unmanaged switch? Are there any downsides? I'm leaning toward the POE injector as that gives more flexibility. I'm assuming the injector route would also maximize bandwidth speed per AP?
The APs broadcast 4 different SSIDs, all on different VLANs. AP administration is handled on a physical connection (not over wireless).
