My co-worker tells me he plugged one of our 3Com PoE injectors into
port 2 (the non-PoE port) of a net4521 and a little puff of smoke came
off the board. I am surprised. I thought that the 802.3af injectors'
equipment-sensing and over-current protection were supposed to prevent
that from happening? Is the injector defective? Have I over-estimated
the protection that 802.3af provides?
