7960G & Netgear Switch (FS752TPS) - POE not working
My company currently installed some 7911G and 7960G VOIP phones. We have a Cisco 1861 Router and a Netgear Prosafe (FS752TPS) 48-port (24 POE) switch. We got the 7911G to work with POE but the 7960G won't.
Do I need a Cisco Power Splitter? Cross-over cable (if so, what is the layout for it)? Cisco POE injector? Or just use a power cube?
I have not tried these products, (Cisco PoE switches are all backwards compatible) but this is what you are referring to. It might be easier to just go with the Power Cube but the Dongle may be worth a try;

So as Rob mentioned, the powerDsine product from microsemi has a dongle that converts the 802.3af to support phones that are pre-standard power.
Basically it swaps two pairs but I don't remember which ones. You could do the exact same thing with a custom cable. I've had to make some custom cables before when I ran out of the dongles. Works like a charm.
