Any wireless points still using a power brick + kettle lead?
Maybe an odd request this - need to upgrade a wireless link between two buildings, currently a painfully slow but reliable 11mbps. Want to upgrade to 54 or 108 gear, but the tricky part is - had a sparky sort out a hardwired kettle lead because people kept turning the bridge off... Does anyone know of/have any current gear which uses a kettle lead connection to a power brick then on to the access point? Everything new I have at the moment simply uses a transformer style plug! Rats.

I'm not sure about that, but if you can't locate one specifically, you could try getting hold of one of the cheap 3com PoE adapters as these use a kettle lead type connector and a PoE friendly access point.

I know my BlueSocket WAPs use kettle leads... why not use PoE though? An injector is under £20.

Injector is under £10 the 3com ones are about 6 or 7 quid each.

I tape mine up and add a notice saying do not switch off or unplug.
Gaffer tape works well.

I know this is what what you where asking directly. But if you need to change the connection between the two building and cannot afford the fibre or a cable put between the two building.
It might be worth having a look at http://www.dabs.com/ProductView.aspx...1030&InMerch=1
There are various makers and speeds but they are a simple solution if the power fort he other building is from a close building with a network in it.

Providing the sockets you choose are on the same phase, and the length of wiring between the sockets is <200m. Consider that the two buildings, even if on the same phase, may not have any shared cable until you get back to a sub-station.
