- Connect the network cable into the wall jack as you normally would.
- Plug the cable from the wall jack into the NETWORK jack on the phone.
- Plug a network cable into the COMPUTER jack on the phone.
- Plug the other end of the COMPUTER cable into the dumb switch. This gives your PC, printers, etc connectivity to the network!
I have tested this on various brands of phones and various brands of POE switching. So far, they have each been able to provide the connectivity to the network needed by the dumb-switch devices while enabling the power and connectivity needed of the VOIP phone.
Hope this helps!
