BGW210 and Power over Ethernet

I am a newbie and I am wanting to connect an Access Point to my BGW210 in order to boost the signal throughout my house - rather than using WIFI extenders.

 

Does the BGW210 support Power over Ethernet on the ethernet ports?   In other words, does the BGW210 supply the "power" over the ethernet connected cable or do I need to use a Power over Ethernet Injector to "inject" power over the cable.

 

Thank you for your input!

You'll have to use an injector. Or you could get a POE switch that you could plug into your BGW210 but that would be more expensive.

You can try powerline adapters for internet only connections but they may or may or not work.  They don't necessarily play nice with other stuff plugged into your mains.

 

Here's a whole bunch of posts in these forums on the subject of powerline adapters for you to research.
