I'm currently evaluating different VOIP phones for use. I odered two SPA501G as they offer PoE. However upon connecting the lan port with the switch, I get no connection/boot up of the phones. Neither of them seem to work. I tried three different switches with multiple ports on each, I tried the supplied cable and other ethernet cables. I just can't get it to work.
Is there any special switch/router required for PoE?
