PoE recommendations for System Blue
#2
I am planning to use this passive PoE, works with 10/100 Mbps since there are only 2 pairs of wires for the data.

I made a 2.1mm DC barrel plug to USB mini adapter to use with it.

I then got this power supply and bought the extra plugs to get the 2.1mm I needed.

That power supply is nice since you can increase the voltage in small steps, 5v, 6v, 6.5v, 7v, which will allow you to overcome the voltage drop caused by the Ethernet cable.

Currently the system is in my basement, I plan to run the Ethernet cable in the future and put the system in my garage.

I don't expect any issues.
