AFAIK the difference is "power on the data pairs" or "power on the spare
Many commercial AP's cope with either.
I think Soekris only copes with "power on spare pairs", which is the
"midspan" solution.
That's why it doesn't work connected to a switch, but does when connected to
an injector

Ok, so that confirms that there is nothing wrong with my device:)  They
claim on their website that "Supports Power over Ethernet according to
the 802.3af standard" at http://www.soekris.com/net4826.htm.  I have
sent them an email to see what they have to say about this too.  I will
keep you posted on their reply.
