unplugging the POE

Does not unplugging/plugging in a CPE POE reset the radio? I thought it did.

No, otherwise after every power outage folks would be REALLY busy.

So, nothing happens when a POE is reset?

Are you talking about an injector or a POE switch? Either way, all that happens is power is lost, and then power is restored. Like a hard reboot.

It's something to try if the radio is not connecting, but it does not reset the radio to factory default. It reboots the radio, that is all.

reset is different then power cycling a poe switch, injector or device.

Reset means there is some sort of hard button or software choice you have to hit it and it wipes the radio.

Just removing power from a wireless radio does not wipe the settings.

If you meaning reset as in just reboot then yes pulling power "reboots" the radio and retains the settings.

You need to get your terminlogy correct.

In general terms

"reset" = generally means wipes settings back to defualt
"Power cycling or removal of POE power" = means the system is powered down and back on retaining the settings that you had configured.

My thinking is that pulling the power of the POE requires the radio to re-establish signal to the AP. Thus it is a reboot, not a reset. The customer will retain their IP.

Yes, it reboots the radio, causing a connection renegotiation. The customer may get a different IP depending on network setup and DHCP lease times if used.
