CISCO 888 POE ports

Hello all,

I just bought a CISCO access point and I need to power it up via my POE port. So Fa0 and Fa1 are POE ports but when I plug in the cable my access point is not taking power so I think I need some configuration to the port. I found this in the CISCO guide but not working for me.

Router# configure terminal

Router(config-if)# power inline static

 

Unfortunately there are no commands "power inline" my output is:

Router(config-if)#power inline
^
% Invalid input detected at '^' marker.

 

 

Even when I am trying "show power inline" is the same. So I don`t know how to give a power to my access point. Thanks in advance.

Post the complete output to the command "sh inventory raw". 

The small routers require two things: 

  1. PoE daughter card
  2. A very large, chunky and ugly-looking power supply

There are people who sell these routers, and claim PoE, but they removed the PoE daughter card so they can charge more for it.

My router was brand new so nobody opened it, just no PoE . Also I found this in a Cisco documentation if in the future someone read this topic.

Power over Ethernet Module

The Cisco 880 series ISRs can include an optional Power over Ethernet (PoE) module that provides
power to 802.3af-compliant devices connected to FE ports 0 and 1.
The Cisco 890 series ISRs can include an optional PoE module that provides power to 802.3af-compliant
devices connected to FE ports 0, 1, 2, and 3.
The PoE module is an option available only for the Cisco 880 series and 890 series ISRs and requires a
48-V external power adapter.
This function can be added to an 880 or 890 series router by installing the PoE adapter card in the router
and inserting the PoE 48-V external power adapter.
