There is a new design for these Power over Ethernet devices, and they actually look better. Basically these take power from the wall and data from an Ethernet Cable and combines them both onto one Ethernet Cable. The main use for these is so you can place your wireless access point in the best spot possible. For Example: I wanted to place one of my wireless access points in my attic facing my pool so I can get internet access on my laptop poolside. Since there is no power sockets in my attic where I want to put my access point (AP) I used this PoE adapter. You plug the power cable that is for your AP in the wall where your router or switch is located and plug in an Ethernet cable into your router or switch. Then take the open end of the Ethernet cable you just plugged into your router or switch and the power cable that plugs into your AP and plug them both into one end of this PoE adapter from D-Link. Then on the other end of that PoE you run a long Ethernet cable to the attic. Then that long cable will plug into the other end of this PoE adapter. Then from there the PoE adapter splits the power and Ethernet into a power and Ethernet cable that both go into your AP. This may sound confusing, but it is really rather simple. It enabled me to have poolside wireless Internet access and that is well worth double the actual price of this adapter.

Product Overview

The DWL-P100 Power Over Ethernet (POE) Adapters are accessory items designed to supply operational power to devices with an Ethernet port and power requirements that do not exceed 5 Volts/1 Amp. The DWL-P100 Adapters provide an ideal solution to mount a device such as an Access Point virtually anywhere in a building (ceilings, attics, or roofs) without the need to locate the wireless Access Point near an electrical outlet. The DWL-P100 consists of the Base Unit and the Terminal Unit connected by an Ethernet cable to extend the reach up to 100 m (328 feet). The DWL-P100 supplies the AP with power via the single Ethernet Cat 5 cable. The DWL-P100 is primarily targeted at users looking for a convenient solution to extend the coverage of their wireless local network.
