The only way you can give a device power is if it is PoE. That means the end device needs to support (receive PoE from the switch) and the starting device i.e. switch sends power. If you do not have one of these it will not work. What will most likely happen even if you were able to make shift something; would not be able to pass traffic due to the EMI you have just self generated. That is if you don't blow devices on either side up, or electrocute yourselves.
This is a forum you come to, to get help on things that are feasible not impossible nor a forum to ask how to kill yourself or put others in harms way because your too God dam cheap to get the equipment needed to do the things you want.
As beers stated PoE will not
provide power to a switch or multiple switches. A switch that supports PoE means that it will provide power for certain devices (IP Camera's, VoIP Phones, "certain
Access Points, thin clients are about the only things that I can think of that will support PoE)!Edited by bratas - 4/10/13 at 1:25pm
