as far as i know, will be released soon a new Arduino Ethernet board.
It will be all-in-one (not a shield) solution, with POE support.
..very very interesting!  smiley-lol

Here a image i've done at the ArduinoCamp (www.arduinocamp.com) at 18/06/2011 in Italy, Milan:

Well after they got to V02 5 years ago back in 2006 with an ethernet board it's been a long time coming:

We were still on the Arduino NG back then...



This all-in-one is very interesting indeed!  ]:D

Judging from the photo, this board will also use a Silvertel PoE module.

I suspect that there are a couple of issues:

-Plugging a shield on top of this "Arduino Uno Ethernet" may be a problem due to PoE module height.
-There is a ferrite core transformer on the PoE module that "sits" right on top of W5100 chip. Although the transformer is a "closed core" type, I'm not sure whether its radiated field will somehow affect W5100 performance/operation (theoretically, in extreme situations, it could cause erratic operation of W5100 chip).

Let's wait for this new board…

It does support PoE but you have to buy a Silvertel PoE Module AG9120S http://arduino.cc/en/uploads/Main/PoE-datasheet.pdf and solder it to the board. Yes it is a 12v module but with a bridge already installed on the Ethernet Shield from V+ to ADJ it supplies 9v to the Arduino it can be used with a power injector that supplies 48v over the data lines or over the extra pairs but not both at the same time.

The module can be found here http://www.semiconductorstore.com/cart/pc/viewPrd.asp?idproduct=13996



I'm a bit of a newbie to Arduino, but I was hoping someone could help me out?

I have the ethernet shield as shown here: http://arduino.cc/en/Main/ArduinoEthernetShield.  According to that page, it supports PoE with the optional module, but I can't find the holes where it's supposed to go.  Has this feature been removed?

The one pictured is not the latest one.

The latest one with the POE installed looks like this:
