I have a client with an Cisco2811. He now wants it to be a POE Router. Can he update the power supply and network module to make this happen or does he need to purchase a cisco2811-ac-ip?

Thank you. Do you know if I need a power cable from the power supply to the NM slot?

Yes, thank you, but how does the power get to the network module slot? is there a cable or is it built into the board?

The new power supply will provide the power. The PoE NM slot will know where to look for the power.

You have been very helpful, and just to clarify - for my boss - I don't need any cable from the power supply to the slot for the network module.

I don't have a router to look inside - but our client keeps speaking of a wire to the network module slot from the power supply.

Thank you again... sorry to push this.

How can I tell which power supply is installed without physical access to the router? Show Ver and Show diag don't show me.

Try "show environment" it should show something like this if is an AC-IP supply:

Router#sh environment

Main Power Supply is AC with -48V

-48V supply status: OK

-48V relay status: NON-ISOLATED


It won't show the -48V if it is not.
