2 nodes and 1 hAP router cfg question

Hi, 
I have a 5GHz Mikrotik dish and a Ubiquity omni w rocket someone loaned me today. Both are powered by their own PoE injectors. Port 5 on the router has PoE disabled. Previously I had it enabled and worked fine with just the dish.
I am trying to get them both going but having no luck. I was told only port 5 on the router will host nodes- so I plugged the nodes into a Ubiquity 8 port smart switch- and port 5 on the router into the switch as well. Nada. I have the router status page but neither of the nodes are showing up. Both nodes and the switch are showing link lights on the switch.
What can I look for to adjust/change to make this work?
Thanks

UPDATE-
If I only have the omni connected to the router works fine. I see it in neighbors. I also see that the dish IS working and connected to a local high level site. The omni sees it and is using it for the gateway. Just cannot get them both hard wired and coexisting on the LAN.

Configure the switch to use VLAN 2

If you configure the Ubiquiti switch to provide VLAN 2 to the ports where the devices are connected, they will all see each other. An example using a 5 port ToughSwitch is here: https://www.arednmesh.org/content/ts-5-poe-2-lan-3-node

I powered up a hAP, a nanobridge M900, and a nanostation M5; each via their respective power/POE.
I added a 8 port 'smart switch'; 3COM 3CGSU08.
The nanobridge and the nanostation are plugged into the switch.
The switch plugs into port 5 (DtD) of the hAP.
This laptop is plugged into a LAN port of the hAP.

Is this what you want to work?

Hi- thx- 

Hi- thx- 
I have a Switch 8 from Ubiquity. I decided to use it for the WAN side of things as I have an AP and CloudKey for my home network- plus the Switch 8 is 48V unless I power it w 24V PoE.

I have a D-Link gigabit switch now set up with all 3 nodes and port 5 on the hAP connected. The omni and my dish are showing dtd like your picture- but the last dish does not. It is working and connected to the mesh so it is notcritical just odd. I will likely get a 24V PoE switch ata a later date to simplify things.
