    Thats a useful tip. I don't have a linksys, but the approach is applicable to any other "POE" capable device. This is true for a lot of netgear prosafe equipment too. I think I might just make my network POE compliant and run the small breakout hub/switches (running printer stands) POE.

    Does anyone know how many devices (or mA, mW) is the recommended max on a POE circuit?

    You can add PoE on nearly any network device, 100mbit operation requires only 4 wires, the other 4 can be used for PoE.
