Hello there

Nope. The regular Q is WiFi-only.

thanks for your response, after doing research I was thinking to get that device to make it compatible? do you think that may work?

Don't know internal specs of what Arlo uses.... prob only way to know is to try it ( and return if it doesn't work )

I guess it depends on what you're trying to do. I was assuming you wanted an Ethernet connection which isn't possible. Using that PoE splitter will work for power (theoretically) but still won't allow an Ethernet connection.

I was just interested on power as I have an access point near the entrance, let's see how it goes.

okay so 

test is 50/50 but will stick to it, the device give power over ethernet however the ethernet cable  is cat 3 and doesn't give power which is odd, so I had to add another ethernet cable cat 6 but at least I now have the camera up and running without power cord.
