Ports and Button:
  • Power port User-added image - This port is where you will connect the supplied AC power adapter. 
NOTE:  Use only the adapter that came with your access point. 
  • Ethernet port User-added image - Connect a wired network device to this port.  This port supports Power over Ethernet (PoE) with a PoE switch or PoE injector.  The Linksys LAPAC1200C is powered on from an 802.3af and 802.3at (PoE+)-compliant source.
QUICK TIP:  When both PoE and AC power adapter are connected to the access point, the device will get power from PoE as higher precedence.  Using a Cat5e or a better cable is highly recommended.  The maximum power consumption of the Linksys LAPAC1200C is 13 W.
  • Reset button User-added image - Press and hold this button for less than 15 seconds to powercycle the device.  Press and hold for longer than 15 seconds to reset the device to factory default settings.
NOTE:  A reset will not disassociate the access point from your Cloud account.  You will need to delete the access point from your Cloud account and add it back, in order to set it up again.
