Re: Cisco 3750 doesnt take power inline auto!

Your model switch does not support the Power over Ethernet feature. Please take note of the model number: WS-C3750G-24TS.

The equivalent model switch which does support POE is the WS-C3750G-24PS. Notice the model number ends with PS instead of TS.

Check thefollowing datasheet for a description of all the various models:

I hope this helps.
