Quite Functional, but Look at Compatibility List

Andrew Swift, Amazon
12 February 2010
  • 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).

They don't work

Anonymous, Newegg
18 September 2009
  • Summary: The v1.2 injector seems to work fine; the splitter is what they messed up. It just makes this awful screetching sound and the connected device will either light up dim or not at all. If I use a v1.2 injector with a v1.1 splitter its fine, but the v1.2 splitter doesn't work no matter what.
  • Pros: The old ones, v1.1 worked great
  • Cons: The new ones, v1.2 simply don't work. I've RMA'd they multiple times and have finally given up. I'm exchanging them for the D-Link kit.

Works Well

Jason Y., Newegg
10 September 2009
  • Pros: This works perfectly. It was installed to provide power to a Cisco Small Business WAP4400N Wireless-N Access Point. Works perfectly. Did not need the power receiver end as the Cisco AP can accept POE.
  • Cons: Might be a little confusing for those less technically apt. I would not recommend using it with any non-Linksys/Cisco components that do not accept POE because the power receiver end only has a power connector for Cisco/Linksys product. Though you might get lucky.

Just what i needed!

Thomas J., Newegg
26 August 2009
  • Pros: Can provide power over long lengths of Cat5/6 ethernet cable. Stable. I haven't had any issues powering a WRT300N with DD-WRT over 150ft with Cat6.
  • Cons: Adapters could be smaller.

Nice & Easy

Diego G., Newegg
25 June 2009
  • Summary: I am using this to power a Cisco/Linksys SD208 (8-port 10/100 unmanaged switch) and it works just great even though the PoE adapter is not listed as being compatible with the switch.
  • Pros: Simple, easy to install and use. Functions without incident.
  • Cons: Data-In cable is hardwired, would have been nice if there was just a jack. The power adapter is big.

Perfect for WAP devices

Jeff ten Bosch, Amazon
23 January 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

JP, Amazon
4 January 2009
  • 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...

Delivers PoE but you lose gigabit speed

Manoj Khiani, Amazon
15 November 2008
  • 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.

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.
