PoE

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I was thinking of getting PoE and but I'm not quite sure what do I need for it? I have a belkin router do I just need the adapters that plug into the wall and thats it or what all do I need and how much will it cost? Also if i have on adapter coming from the router to the wall can it send internet to anything plugged in? like to my pc and xbox 360 or do i need 2 adapter coming from the router for the xbox 360 and pc?

You're a bit confused andy. PoE is POWER over Ethernet. This has 0 to do with network. PoE is used for cases like powering VOIP phones from the ethernet cable as opposed to a wall plug.

What you're thinking of is Homeplug, which uses the existing power lines in your home to distribue network connectivity. Yes, you need 2 adapters to use this with your xbox, but some home electronics (dish network receivers for example) can use the service without an adapter plugged in at their location (you still need one at the router). Homeplug connectors are normally sold in pairs, so you shouldn't have a problem setting it up for your XBox.

If you wanted to connect the PC and XBox you'd need 3 adapters. 1 at the router, 1 at the xbox, and a 3rd at the PC.

ok so to connect a device to the network it needs its own adapter? Can't have a hub to the wall plug then connect the devices to the hub? Actually the hub idea sounds like it will reduce the speeds alot for each device.

Hub = bad.... but yes it would work. Shouldn't really slow your speeds down much.... but hub = bad

hub = bad


ok it think i said it enough.

yes hub is bad except for "very" specialized situations. a hub or switch (This is what you want by the way) won't hurt your speed very much unless both machines are cranking full speed over the network. Also i think mentioning the difference between a switch and a hub would be useful here.
A hub is a dumb device that doesn't even require power in some situations (The power is there for light and to repeat the packets coming into it). When a hub gets a packet from the network it doesn't care where the packet wants to go it just throws it back out every port it has , receiving port excluded, this is called broadcasting. This lead to collisions happening much more frequently on said network which in turn kills performance. A switch on the other hand is an intelligent device that requires power. When a switch receives a packet it looks at a table that it keeps in its memory to see where the packet should go and sends it out the appropriate port. The only time a switch broadcasts a packet is when it gets a packet going to a destination that it doesn't know about.
