Basic power over Ethernet setup

Post by storm84 » 08 Jul 2017, 14:13

Wireless clearly isn't working for me, and I can't run a LAN cable through the apartment, so I'm looking to use power-over-ethernet.

So the question I have is what's the most basic setup I can do for this? It doesn't need to be over 100Mbps (since my wireless router is only 100Mbps) and I'm hoping to spend as little money as possible on it with the fewest pieces of equipment possible.

I assume you actually mean Ethernet-over-Power :?:

I bought a pair of device once and discovered some quirks with it and have since not used them. The quirks being they run hot, they cannot be used with surge protected powerboards (so if you get surges your equipment may not be protected) and your cable run from one room to another may not be direct or on the same circuit as it were, depending how your apartment is wired.

Adversely, PoE is when you don't have a powerpoint available and you want to setup perhaps other equipment and power an access point/switch for example from ethernet.
