Be sure you understand what this DWL-P200 actually does. It is not a standards compliant (802.3af) midspan POE injector. The picture shows two parts, which I thought were just front and rear views of a midspan injector. You actually get two parts, and the second one (terminal unit) must sit adjacent to your powered device, along with an extra patch cord and an extra power cord. The DWL-P200 applies power to unused pairs at the head end and splits it out again at the device end. It would be useful for delivering power to a non POE enabled device or a POE device, if the device input is either 5v or 12v and fits the exact form factor plug that DLink supplies, and if you don't mind having another box and two more wires at the device end. DLink supplies a female to female DC power cord that runs from the terminal unit to your power input on your device. No adapters are supplied for different plug types. It either fits or it doesn't. I intended to use this to power an 802.3af POE capable wireless access point but didn't want to look at these extra parts dangling on the wall of my church fellowship hall. What I needed, and bought, was an 802.3af midspan power injector. I called DLink tech support for clarification and I'm pretty sure the agent I talked to had never seen a DWL-P200. The advice I got was incorrect. I tried powering my POE device from the base unit only; it didn't work.

Product Overview

D-Link, an industry leader in networking, introduces the DWL-P200 Power over Ethernet (PoE) Adapter. The DWL-P200 delivers both data and electrical power to Ethernet-enabled devices using a single Ethernet cable. Using Power over Ethernet, you eliminate the need to place an Ethernet-enabled device, such as a wireless access point, near a power outlet, giving you more freedom in placement.

The DWL-P200 Power over Ethernet (PoE) Adapter is simple to install, requiring no tools and no software. Its compact size makes implementation of the DWL-P200 easy. Plug the base unit into a power outlet, and then connect the terminal unit to your network device using any standard Ethernet cable. Once set up, the terminal device unit can output power to any compatible 5V or 12V Ethernet-enabled device.

The DWL-P200 simplifies your installation of Ethernet-enabled devices, such as an Internet camera or wireless access points, by allowing you to place it beyond the range of standard power outlets. You can now mount these devices to a ceiling or outside without placing them near a power supply.

With the DWL-P200 Power over Ethernet (PoE) Adapter, both power and data can be transmitted up to 328 feet (100m) using standard Ethernet cabling with virtually no reduction in data throughput. Use the DWL-P200 with Ethernet-enabled devices where power outlets are not readily available.
