    wire from POE injector in to keystone jack THEN router. (will it work?


    I purchased a ubiquiti UAP-AC-PRO (for my house) which I will using with a POE injector.

    The cable coming OUT of the injector would typically be plugged into the router directly. however, I plan on putting my injector behind the wall.

    My question is....
    I already have a cat5e keystone jack installed in the wall. Can I have the cat5e cable coming out of my injector be wired into my keystone jack? Then I would plug a Ethernet cord from the jack into my router. Would this work? I have attached a picture if it helps. wire from POE injector in to keystone jack THEN router.

    If wired correctly I don't see any reason why it shouldn't.

    Network cables in large organization can go through several patch panels.

    With the connectors on in the locations I marked in red I would use a cable tester.

    Does the little box get warm, I would be concerned about heat build up if your are hiding in wall, especially if insulated.

    The injector cannot be placed behind a wall. Place it where the router is located.

    Yes they get warm. Had one cause condensate on a metal network shelf that was in my basement and ended up replacing.
