The Cisco 1861 has 8 PoE switch ports, which are all Fast Ethernet ports. In addition, there are 2 Fast Ethernet ports onboard, one of which is connected directly to the CPU and so is a routed port, whereas the second is a switch uplink port connected to the onboard 8 PoE switch ports. This second Fast Ethernet port may be used as an expansion port to an external switch if more PoE switch ports are required.
