Hi, Kind of silly question as I'm newbie in Cisco.Can I plug in PC or any switches into 3560-E POE port as I hope it will not fried my LAN port. Cause I'm not using all the port for generating power to my IP phone or Wlan devices.

POE switches such as 3560-E based on IEEE 802.3af, contains a detection mechanism to send power only to POE compliant devices. eg:IP phones etc

So it's safe to connect other switches or PC to free ports.
