Quite Functional, but Look at Compatibility List

Andrew Swift, Amazon
17 June 2009
  • Summary: This adapter kit works just like described, the Wireless-G Access Points I powered with the two kits I purchased have been up and running for about two months. There are only two caveats with this product: 1) This device is NOT fully 802.3af compliant (Power Over Ethernet).

Delivers PoE but you lose gigabit speed

Manoj Khiani, Amazon
27 May 2009
  • Summary: This product delivers Power over Ethernet. However, you will lose the ability to transfer at wired gigabit speed. My other switch has a dual color light to indicate whether the connected device is running at gigabit or not. Before, the switch lit up with a green light to indicate gigabit speed.

Perfect for WAP devices

Jeff ten Bosch, Amazon
25 February 2009
  • Summary: I used this to allow me to place my wireless access point in a location that does not currently have a local power source. Suffice it to say, this product is a cheaper investment then hiring an electrician. As noted in the cons, you may want to limit the use of this to 10/100 speed products.

Watch Out! - Great, but must manually configure 10/100/1000 router port to 10/100; fails on unmanaged 10/100/1000 switches

Amazonian, Amazon

  • Summary: Great device, works fine, just have to manually configure 10/100/1000 ports to 10/100 to make it work. I bought this unit and struggled for weeks to get it to work right ... turns out, the injector or source device gets confused if you connect it to an auto-sensing Gigabit device (I tried both a...

works as expected

Bill Kearney, Amazon
8 May 2008
  • Summary: If you want to put your linksys router in a location that doesn't have a nearby power outlet then this is the product for you. In our 50+ year old house it's notoriously difficult to get stable wifi unless the router is carefully positioned.

Security Cameras

14 October 2007
  • Summary: This product successfully powered my Panasonic KX HCM110a cameras that I was installing for survelliance. I had purchased two PowerDsine 12V Active splitters for this same purpose, but they failed. The product is a bit pricey, but it gets the job done.

A little pricey but it works great

K. Brown, Amazon
22 August 2007
  • Summary: My wireless access point is mounted high up on a wall. Although running a cat5 cable to it is easy getting power to it was a bit tougher. With this I didn't need to run power to it. In addition I now have it plugged into a UPS sitting on the floor with my router so it stays up during power blips.

Works perfectly

  • Summary: Very easy to install. Works perfectly over sixty feet of CAT-5 Ethernet to WRT54G router. Would not hesitate to purchase again if needed.
