Hi LP,


thanks for your anwser, but the link what you send was for a 867 with 60w power supply. The strange thing is that the 887 has no extra power supply but the rear says it has 2 POE ports.

Strange! My 887VA-M has a small 48VDC - 1.67A PoE conector port just right to the (blue) console port. And thus, left to the 12 VDC - 5 A power adapter conector.

Post the complete output to the command "sh inventory raw".  If the router was purchased as a PoE "bundle" there should be a PoE daughter board.  If it wasn't then someone will need to purchase the 800-IL-PM-2 daughter board.  Be aware that with the daughter board it will only power up 2 of the 4 port at the back.  This is by design.
