Advice against merging[edit]

I do not think that IEEE 802.3af and PoE should be merged into one article. IEEE 802.3af is a standard, but PoE in generel is a mix all kinds of PoE; good and bad. The bad ones do not probe for PD, and can damage network equipment.

I will remove paragraphs, that are better put in PoE and IEEE 802.3at. --Glenn 06:54, 17 June 2006 (UTC)Reply[reply]


The reason that they should be merged is that besides PoE/802.3af/at there are no longer any other bare 802.3xx articles. They all go redirect into there various subtopics. 802.3z -> Fast Ethernet, 802.3ah -> Ethernet in the First Mile, 802.3ad into link aggreation etc.. Furthermore, no manufacture still recommend that you use their pre-standard propietary formats over the IEEE standards they helped develop. -- KelleyCook 20:59, 19 June 2006 (UTC)Reply[reply]
