NM-16ESW-PWR-1GIG is an EtherSwitch network module with Power over Ethernet (PoE) capabilities. After you add this card, you might not be able to configure PoE. This is because you need to have a matching power supply installed on the router to support the PoE features. For more information please click following URL:

When you insert this NME into the router, by default the "backplane", Gi1/0, is DISABLED.

Give Gi1/0 an IP Address and "no shutdown" and you should be OK.

Hope this helps.
