Talk:RUT955 Powering Options
RUT955 routers can be powered from a power socket or over an Ethernet port. Depending on your network architecture you can use the LAN1 port to power the device.
RUT955 routers can also be powered from a power socket and over Ethernet simultaneously. The power socket has higher priority meaning that the device will draw power from the power socket as long as it is available.
When a RUT955 device is switching from one power source to another it loses power for a fraction of a second and may reboot. The device will function correctly after the reboot.
Though the device can be powered over an Ethernet port it is not compliant with the IEEE 802.3af-2003 standard. Powering a RUT955 device from a IEEE 802.3af-2003 power supply will damage the device as it is not rated for input voltages of the PoE standard.
Connector type[edit source]
I think, this information belongs to the Power socket section:
The plug is of this type: https://www.molex.com/molex/products/part-detail/crimp_housings/0039013045. It is also used/known as a "ATX12V" or "(Intel) P4" power connector.
