as i said though (a few times now), with ubiquiti kit you have to make sure you match the correct POE variant.
some devices are 24V poe and some are 802.3af, use the wrong one and you may blow the device.

the ER-X has POE 24v passthru, so the ER-X is powered via an POE injector and the AP is powered via POE from the ER-X.
this is fine as i only have one device needing POE power (the AP).

as a compariosn, the Unifi US-8 60W switch has 802.3af poe only, so couldn't power my AP AC-Lite via POE as it needs 24V POE.
the US-8 150W, however, would be able to power the AC-Lite via POE as it support 24v and 802.3af POE.

Yup, It has been registered and I've slowly been looking through the items available and what 'standard' they use!

Thanks for clearing it up though. Makes much more sense now.

The 24 V passive / 48V "proper" PoE dilemma is why I have a toughswitch (8 port version) as it is configurable on a per port basis to 24V or 48V.

Good for mixing UniFi and other equipment...

My AP AC Lites are 24V only but I believe the newer versions can support 802.3af as well.

That's me ordered an Edgerouter X SFP along with an AC lite AP.
As much as I would like the flashing lights and pretty pictures of the full Unifi setup, I can't quite justify spending an extra 150+ to get it with a basic switch (Or add another 100 for the toughswitch which would have been the route I would have wanted)

Thank you both for your input.

when you get it.
use the POE injector that comes with the AP to power the ER-X (via eth0), and then enable POE pass-thru on eth4 and connect the AP to eth4.
then depending on your ISP, connect the modem ethernet cable to the POE injector, run the setup wizard on the ER-X for whatever setup you want.

I think the SFP variant is slightly different.
I've not seen any documentation to show that it can be powered via the eth0 port.
From my understanding, it comes with a 24v 2.5A wall socket for its power source.
I've still got some cable to run yet but hoping to have that done by this week then I'll get stuck in.

the ER-X i have comes with an external power source too, but has the option to power it via POE.

as it looks like the ER-X SPF has 5 passive POE ports, so doesn't have the pass-thru option like the ER-X does.

Yes, it looks that way. Hopefully the power bricks are sturdy enough.
I'm looking forward to getting stuck in now though.

Got my kit today!!
Didn't expect it to be so small!!
Just a few more cables to run and wire in a couple of sockets in the cupboard and I'll be up and running.

Back again folks. It appears I'm having a bit of an issue getting connected.

I've ran the basic setup wizard, selected pppoe and input my zen username and password. I've set the vlan to 101 (also tried 1, 2, 10 and 100) but none seem to work.

My Zyxel is in bridge mode and it appears that the IP address for this and the Edgerouter are the same (192.168.1.1) so I assume this is my problem. I'm just a little unsure on where to change it?
In the lan port drop down I changed the address in there to 192.168.1.254 but I don't believe this is 100% correct.

I've clearly missed something but I'm feeling a bit slow today.

Try tagging the vlan 101 on the zyxel bridge, not the router.

It looks like it is already is.
Tried removing vlan from the Edgerouter but no joy.

There must be some means of restoring the Edgerouter to its factory, unconfigured state.

As j0hn has already mentioned, the VLAN (tagged 101), should be configured on the modem . . . your ZyXEL VMGnnn-B10x device.

If two devices on a network are assigned the same IP address then havoc and mischief will occur. Either reconfigure the ZyXEL or the Ubiquiti device to have a 192.168.1.254 IPv4 address, leaving the other device with the default 192.168.1.1 IPv4 address.
