    Given that sales are up 49,700% since yesterday, I am guessing that it is.

      An FYI - I have both the above mentioned POE adapter and the Linksys POE adapter (in addition to a Cisco POE adapter). Sometime in the last couple of weeks my Linksys WRT54GL went out. (this was one of three AP's) When checking the D-Link POE adapter which I had been using with the Linksys noticed that the egress end (AP side) adapter was partially melted. Maybe this is normal. I took apart the AP and noticed that it had a couple of bad caps. The bad caps I believe were just because of the caps used. I haven't taken apart the D-Link yet. Its been in place now for about a year to 1.5 years. Think I am going to start tagging stuff with dates of installation.

        Boy, I'm not plugging anything in at your house...you have caps going bad left and right!
        Tasker, to a person who does Homeautomation...is like walking up to a Crack Treatment facility with a truck full of 3lb bags of crack. Then for each person that walks in and out smack them in the face with an open bag.

          Can you guys tell me what you use them for?
          What is wrong with plugging adapter into a wall socket?

            POE is used to bring power to a device over CAT5. You don't need to use a wall wart at the device end.

            Relating to bad capacitors - yes I've seen a lot lately. The Linksys WRT-54GL is about 3-4 years old. The MB's I've had issue with were all of the same MFG. Percentage wise I have more older MB's that have been on 24/7 that are doing well.

              Well, I kind of knew that...
              The question was why can't you just use the adapter by the device?(extension cord is still cheaper if there is no outlet nearby...)

                WAF here drops like a rock with wall warts plugged in all over. I don't use POE here but I do have a whole 12vdc system in the house that takes the place of all those wall warts, frees up outlets, and keeps the wife happy.

                  I have an IP camera that is about 30 feet away from my house and about 20 feet up in a tree. It is was lot easier to run one 75 foot cat 5 cable through a pipe and up a tree. So the POE route was a huge benefit.

                    That and being able to plug in a device like an AP only using CAT5E.

                    1 - commercially - long time ago - did a number of airports - (major hubs) - installations based on RF footprint more than available nearby power and aesthetically pleasing. Last few endeavors even hid AP so just a small antenna knob is showing. Management of said device became totally a totally network based endeavor with POE switches. Next time you go to an airport, look up at the ceilings and walls. Two networks existed - private and public. Private served tablets, touch screen kiosks, check in terminals etc. (a roll about terminal was developed - major endeavor - multi transport capable - the object was to put these in hotels, car rental agencies, etc - haven't been to LAS in a while but involved in early development and distribution of kiosks (the whole city - another "fun" endeavor). Involved in utilizing cams after 911 discretly.
                    2 - at home - WAF is a big one. I have an Access point in the attic with only a CAT5E cable attached (with POE). 4 out of 8 cameras now are using combo video/power baluns. Works much better than RG6/power cables.

                    Standards have evolved over the years. The premise is the same. I did a flight attendents training center (4 story building) a few years ago. It was kind of a combo learning / dormitory facility with mostly brick walls. We "saturated" the facility with AP's and used POE for every AP. It involved a major infrastructure update with POE switches / power supplies. The purpose was to provide training materials on a 24/7 day schedule. Just AP's no cams. It worked well. I had fun.

                      This is exactly what I want to do with these adapters. Are you using a pan and tilt camera or stationary? How did you water proof the PoE adapters?

                        Yes it is a pan/tilt camera. I used Self-Amalgamating "Cold Shrink" Weatherproof Tape. If you search for it on e-bay or on the web you will find suppliers. Sometimes outdoor camera's come with a 8-10 inch strip.

                          I have one camera under an eave same setup as Jasv. After a couple of years checking it last summer looked good. (no problems with connections). Difficult part is that I live in a two story and have to climb up there. Have to watch for wasp nests.

                          I also have dome cameras mounted on plastic electrical PVC boxes. All of the cabling and wiring is inside of the box. The outdoor electrical PVC box lid is shielded with a strip of rubber. An example of one near the ground about 125 feet from home.

                          1 - 6 X 6 Cedar post. Sunk this about 1 foot into gravel using post hole digger. It sits about 2-3 foot above ground level giving you a ground level camera view.
                          2 - used a long drillbit and drilled a 1" hole in center to below ground level.
                          3 - ran 12V low voltage cable 12 guage to top. Installed a pagoda style lamp.
                          4 - drilled another 1" hole about 6 inches from top of 6 X 6.
                          5 - ran CAT5 adjacent to same said hole.
                          6 - installed 4" X 4" PVC box for camera.
                          7 - the whole assembly with Pagoda light looks pleasing. Its in a corner property burm mixed in with a variety of plants, trees and bushes. Kind of turns into a jungle if I don't clean up about once a month.

                          Will take pictures.

                            I use this unit and then just splice into a "custom" cat5 line for cameras....

                            Does the POE device do anything other than this? Does it utilize the CAT5 wires specially?

                              What do you do about 5V? Do you see a lot of loss as the 12V runs about the house?
