    Just wanted to point this out to the group:


    Linksys has a PPOE unit for quite a few of their products.

    Here is the list of supported units:
    Model Description
    BEFSR11 EtherFast Cable/DSL Rotuer
    BEFSR41 EtherFast Cable/DSL Router with 10/100 4-Port Switch
    BEFSR81 EtherFast Cable/DSL Router with 8-Port 10/100 Switch
    BEFVP41 EtherFast Cable/DSL VPN Router with 4-Port 10/100 Switch
    BEFW11S4 EtherFast Wireless AP + Cable/DSLRouter with 4-Port Switch
    HPRO200 HomeLink Phoneline 10M Cable/DSL Router
    WAP11 Wireless Network Access Point
    WAP51AB Dual-Band Wirless A+B Access Point
    WAP54G Wireless-G Access Point
    WAP55AG Dual-Band Wireless A+G Access Point
    WET11 Wireless-G Ethernet Bridge
    WET54G Wireless Ethernet Bridge
    WRT54G Wireless-G Broadband Router

    Its also states "The Injector can also be used by itself with POE-enabled network devices that accept 48 volts directly on a POE port."

    At first look I didn't think it would work for me because it cuts the power down to 5 volts on the receiving end and the WRT54G is a 12 volt unit. However the WRT54G is listed on their page as a supported device and when my friend called and actually spoke to a Linksys engineer, they said it would work.

    I'm glad I found this, because I was just about to re-invent the wheel. Just wanted to share it with everyone else.

    does anyone know if the WAPPOE Power Over Ethernet Adapter Kit will also work with the WRT54GS?

    Did you not even read the subject for this post or the post itself?

    I think you will be able to answer your own question if you just take in minute to read the previous message in this post.

    thanks for the reply.

    Did someone actually verify that the WRT54GS works fine with the WAPPOE?

    If so, why it isn't in the list of the supported products by the WAPPOE?


    P.S.: Is the WRT54GS power adapter multi-standard (110 to 230 V)?

    I use the WAPPOE to power a few of my WRT54G routers.

    I'm pretty sure if it will work on that, it will also work for the GS models. But you may want to email Linksys just to verify.

    I dont know anything about the power adapter, sorry.

    I sent an email to LinkSys technical support, but haven't got a reply yet ...

    It looks like D-Link has a Power over Ethernet Adapter with selectable 5V or 12V output:
    "DWL-P200 Power over Ethernet (PoE) Adapter"

    Do you think it will work with the WRT54GS?
