    Wall mounting a switch

    by talkingcats ·

    Hi, I have bought a PoE switch so that I can power my WAP directly instead of via an injector. A TP-LINK SG1005P 4 port switch.

    I want to wall mount it. On its underside it has two crossed shaped slots with perhaps 3mm depth. It does not have anything to mount it in a rack. It is a tiny little thing. I was hoping to post a picture it doesn’t seem possible.

    I was thinking of using two non-countersunk bolts/screws put into the wall to hang it like a picture. As I have never done this before I would appreciate any thoughts on this or whether there are alternative methods.

    Thanks!

      Checked out TP-Link’s documentation.

      There is no indication this has mounting points. I’d consider some stick on plastic tabs with double sided foam tape. That is, you would CREATE YOUR OWN MOUNTING SOLUTION if you can’t have it sit on a flat surface.

      TP-LINK SG1005P seems don’t have mouting points, so you can only DIY yourself. Or you can just choose a wall mounted PoE switch, it will save much work.
