MikroTik hAP PoE port not powering node
I've converted it to ARDEN and the UI shows up fine either on WiFi or wired.  For some reason, I can't get the PoE port 5 to power up an external node.  I kept the external node connected to the hAP then applied power to the hAP. During the hAP's boot up, I see the external node lights turn on to boot, then go off.  At that same time, I see a Red LED on the hAP.  When the red LED goes off, then the node lights all go out.

I've got 24v in at the power plug of the hAP.  I put a PoE voltage tester on the hAP Port 5 and when it boots, it shows 23 volts and the red LED is on.  Then after 15 seconds, the LED goes off and the voltage drops to 9.9v.  If a node is connected, the voltage drops to less than 3 volts. 

Does anyone have any ideas?

If an external node is connected to PoE Port 5, would the LED turn Red if supplying power to that external node?

Trying to find what the LED's mean.

Enable it!
POE power on port 5 is not enabled by default.  You can turn it on under Advanced Configuration.
