I bought ESP32-POE-ISO on week ago and it worked fine for a week on USB power. Then I bought POE switch (STEAMEMO 5 Port Gigabit Ethernet Unmanaged PoE Switch ) but once I connect board to this switch ethernet stop working. Board quickly got little bit hot but TX&RX leds were off and no activity on switch. If I connect USB power and reconnecting RJ45 then TX&RX leds light up and activity led start blinking but on RJ45 disconnect TX&RX leds still on. I tried to use it without POE again but looks like ethernet is dead. And now I feel that ethernet chip get hot even without POE power. Another board (wESP32) works fine on the same switch.
I will get replacement from but why it happened and how to make sure that it not happen again?
