I have a ASA 5505 at home and would like a cheap access point to plug into the PoE port of the ASA, can anyone suggest one? Or is is better just to get a normal AP and plug in to the ASA and use an external power supply?
What I mean is I have an ASA for my house and need to add a cheap WiFI solution and seeing I have a PoE port on the ASA 5505, what options do I have? I see there are expensice APs from Cisco, but wondered if there are other solutions?
Not sure how much PoE can an ASA provide PoE. A lot of APs require 15.4w and newer APs, like the 3700, require an "average" of 20.0w PoE. You can operate the 3700 at 15.4w PoE but the number of in/out and spatial streams go down.
Cisco's PWR-INJ4 is made by a company called Phihong and this company makes a lot of mid-span PoE products.
The ASA 5505 is the same hardware as the WLC 2504. Now will it power up the AP... Sure as long as the AP is 802.af. Will the ap communicate on the network. I have no clue as I never attempted to connect an AP to an ASA5505 direct. Like Leo mentioned get a power injector or an AC power cord and connect the AP to a switch.
Ethernet 0/6 and Ethernet 0/7 support PoE for devices such as IP phones or wireless access points. If you install a non-PoE device or do not connect to these switch ports, the adaptive security appliance does not supply power to the switch ports.
If you shut down the switch port using the shutdown command, you disable power to the device. Power is restored when you enter no shutdown. See the "Configuring Switch Ports as Access Ports" section for more information about shutting down a switch port.
To view the status of PoE switch ports, including the type of device connected (Cisco or IEEE 802.3af), use the show power inline command.
