Internet & Networking With the uptake of IP telephony continuing apace and the proliferation of IP devices in general, has the time finally arrived for an old concept power over Ethernet (PoE)? For certain deployments of IP based technology, PoE is not only cost effective but arguably essential.

I'm through pissing around with what has become an exercise in futility. I thought my initial post was pretty clear - you are not powering *other devices* with phone line current. Again - PoE carries voltage on non-data lines - this is how it manages to power devices w/o being destructive to the signal you are *trying* to send from device to device.

And FWIW, caller ID in most cases requires a battery.
