Summary: I have this DWL-P50 powering a DWL-2100AP, splitting power from a gigabit link to which power has been injected by a TrendNet TPE-111GI. To anyone who is concerned about link speed: There are two injectors (one at either end), and another splitter (TrendNet TPE-112GS) to power a TrendNet switch.
Excerpt: I am deploying a series of micro thin client Linux boxes and needed to split power and data. This box was the perfect solution to simplify installation, since our corporate network switches are all Power over Ethernet capable.
Excerpt: I purchased these to power Network IP Cameras remotely that didn't have PoE capability. They work fine. I had to modify one end of the power cable that goes from the adapter to the device as it has only one type/size of connector for a device.
Summary: I'm with the other reviewer, this is not a standard POE injector, it is designed to work with D-Link equipment it seems, the description needs to be better. I gave it 3 stars because I don't know how well it would work if I could use it.
Summary: The description for this items suggests that it works independently to provide POE, but that isn't the case. It requires a compatible D-Link switch. I can't vouch for the functionality of this item because it wouldn't work with my existing network equipment, so I had to send it back for a refund.
Summary: Spares having to supply separate power to remotely placed Ethernet devices, and reduces network clutter and the number of those annoying "wall wart" transformers that are the plague of electronics these days.
Summary: I tried to use this for my security cameras. I was thinking that it would inject the power over the Ethernet cable so that I could have one Ethernet cable go to the security camera. It turns out that you have to plug this adapter into the Camera power jack in addition to the Ethernet cable. . .
Summary: Item came without the power unit that my first PoE had. Without the plug-in AC adapter, there's no power and it doesn't work. Should have been made aware that there was another piece to buy because this is useless without a way to provide power to it.
