Powered by the PoE or just attached to it?

Re: Norton Core on PoE switch

Technically the Modem is powered by PoE. When Core attached, it lost Modem's power. Not sure if the Core attached directly to the Modem when it happens *Modem>Core>Switch* or to the PoE Switch *Modem>Switch>Core* (this is not my case by the way, just want to know more about this PoE compare to those normal switch extenders). The Modem is attached to the wall. No clue what should be the exact setup, if directly to switch or to the Modem or regardless it will worked. As far I know POE (Power over Ethernet) switches supply power to the equipment plugged into. Let me know if theres confusion or clarification. I can go ahead and confirmed this back to the user. Thanks

I'm following you less now than before. Standard PoE powers things that indicate they can take power by sending voltage over the wires in a way that doesn't mess with the signal of the differential pairs. If a device isn't PoE capable it won't request power and won't get it.

You have a modem that gets power via the ethernet cable and nowhere else? I don't know if the Norton router can get power via PoE or not (I would think not).

You are saying when you plug your ethernet cable from the Norton router's WAN port to the POE switch the switch loses power? Is that correct?
