I have an old cisco 1801 (P/N "341-0135-02") laying around and I thought it would be useful to power my new ip cameras with it instead of buying a new PoE switch.
the problem is I'm not sure if it supports PoE. (it is written that PoE is optional in this model but I just need to make sure).
1- there is a PoE led (which does not light at all) on the front panel (see the first photo)
2- when I type the command "power inline auto" it says that the "power" command is not recognized
3- the Ethernet ports on the back are circled in yellow as you can see in the second photo
so does this device support PoE ?
Solved! Go to Solution.
See PoE power supply.
If you have a router with the PoE option, you must connect the PoE power supply to the PoE socket on the back of the router, connect the female end of the PoE power cable to the PoE power supply, and connect the male end of the PoE power cable to a power outlet.
