Can Power over Ethernet solve my problem?

    I have too many wall warts!

    I basically understand how Lynksys's PoE injector works.
    And I know many of the Lynksys devices can recieve PoE withough the breakout part of the injector.

    What I'm wondering is can the PoE injector power more than one device?

    Can the WRT54G S(or the BEFCMU, RT31P2, or EZX16S) inject power on to the ethernet form without the injector?

    If the device providing the power can power more than one device, do those devices all 'pass-through' the power?

    I currently have:
    <Pre>
    BEFCMU
    |
    V
    WRT54GS
    | |
    V V
    RT31P2 EZX16S
    </Pre>

    All of these are currently 12V/1A devices I think (the EZX16S may be 3V not sure) and I'm just loaded up with WallWart transformers. They're all stacked upon each other so distance isn't a problem, and the plugs aren't too far either, I just want to get down to 1 power supply.

    Anyone else solve this problem or have any ideas?

    Anyone know of a 12V 6A power supply with 4 outputs?

    I guess noone out there uses PoE?

    No replies?

    Does anyone use this technology? :)

    PoE is not a really home based technology and i am not sure if it exists for your specifications..

    currently i have a 12V 15Amp psu that has power posts for conections
    all you would have to do is go to radioshack and buy the psu for around 40 bucks and wire and connectors and make your own..

    i also would like PoE information because it sounds interesting.. and i have lots of wall transformers also.


    i have 2 or three of the Psu's but they may be a little overpowered for your application.
