Hello Guys,

I bought few months back an Arduino Ethernet card with PoE module.
Until today I didn't have hardware to test the PoE module and just did.
Is there anything special to do have current coming from PoE or any special cable to use (I currently use a category 5, 4 pairs cable) ?

I am asking this because the card is not powered when I plug the cable.

Thank you

is the switch you are using a PoE switch

The Ethernet socket you connect the other end of the cable to must provide Power Over Ethernet in order for the PoE module to power the Arduino.  Some routers can provide PoE or you can use a "power injector" that connects between the router and the Arduino.

Thanks to both of you for your answers.

By "Until today I didn't have hardware to test the PoE module and just did" I meant I didn't have PoE switch.
Now I do have one and I'm plugged on the switch side on the correct port.

Thank you

It wasn't working because the PoE injector I have using is not 802.3af compliant.
