How do you wire it? Do you need one device each end?

I have tested the WAPPOE and taken one apart - the system is totally
suitable for both SLIMP3 and Squeezebox. Fortunately, Linksys products
also use 5V power suppies with 2.5mm connectors, so it "just works".
This is a nice clean solution if you want to install SLIMP3/Squeezebox
in the wall or any location where power is not easily accessible.

The way these work is on one end, you have an "injector" that puts 48
volts on the ethernet cable (it has a power supply you plug into the
wall). Then there's a "receiver" box on the other end which takes the
48V and switches it down to 5V.
