PoE injector needed for WAP4410N

I bought 2 WAP4410N wireless routers but it did not come with a PoE injector.  We do not have a PoE capable switch.  I have a couple of 3COM PoE injectors but am concerned about differing PoE standards could cause the 3Com PoE injector to damage the WAP4410N.

I cannot find a PoE injector on the Cisco website. Can anyone provide the Cisco part number for a PoE injector for the Cisco WAP4410N or provide assurances about the 3COM PoE that I have for the 3COM 3CRWER100-75 access points?

Hi Thomas,

The WAP4410N is IEEE802.3af PoE Compliant, so if the 3COM supports IEEE802.3af  PoE

you should be good to go

Here are the other recommended PoE injectors;

To link your wired network with your wireless network, connect the access point’s
Ethernet network port to any switch or router with Power over Ethernet (PoE)—or
a PoE injector, such as the Cisco WAPPOE or WAPPOE12.


Here is an example of the PoE kit;

PoEInjector is a pretty good resource for any Power over Ethernet needs you have.

Do you need 10/100 or Gigabit? If its Wireless N you probably need GigE.

These links should help. Let me know if you have any more questions.

I am also considering a PoE injector for the WAP4410N.

I am gravitating towards the WAPPOE12, however the item description seems to indicate it feeds 48V when you're just using it as an injector.

The WAP4410N manual seems to imply it needs just 12V when using PoE.
