Hi! We just received a new OAK-D POE camera (with the luxonis supplied POE injector - a UPOE af) and We cant't seem to get the camera to connect.
I am running Ubuntu linux 20.04, with the latest versions of the depthai, depthai-core and depthai-python repos. I have also run the install requirements scripts - using the depthai python package version 126.96.36.199 ). I connected the camera and POE injector to my RJ45 port on my machine and attempted to run the depthai demo program in the depthai repo, giving this error:
RuntimeError: No DepthAI device found!
Upon further investigation, it looks like the camera is never really properly connected - the link comes up (with an IPV6 address) but it doesn't stabilise (as in it periodically drops out and reconnects), nor is an IPV4 address ever assigned. When I run the device manager program in the depthai-python repo, I have the same issue - no device detected. Additionally, since there is no IPV4 address for the camera, I cannot manually connect to the camera to reflash the bootloader.
I can see a green light on the RJ45 port on the camera, but no corresponding lights on the injector. I am not familiar with this injector model either, so I am not sure if there are lights that should be active on the injector RJ45 ports. Since my network interface is at least trying to negotiate an IPV6 address, I think that there is some connectivity, but I have otherwise hit a bit of a dead end.
Can you suggest any further debugging steps? I suspect that the injector is not working as intended.
