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).
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.
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.
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

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...
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.
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.
