So over the next month or two I will be building a mini-itx file/media server. I want to have it place right by the modem and router and switch. I was thinking that I really dont like having so many power cables, so why not have the modem, router and switch get power from the server's PSU? This is the switch http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16833156251 This is the router http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16833320038 The switch uses 5V @ 1A The router uses 12V @ 1.25A The modem is about the same as the router. So, would it work to take the 12V line and mount a power output via something like this http://www.allelectronics.com/make-a-store/item/DCJ-25/2.5MM-DC-JACK-PANEL-MOUNT/1.html I could do 1 each for the router and modem and then do a 5V one for the switch. The result would be my server being plugged into a UPS and then my router, modem and switch being plugged into the server, eliminating the use of 3 outlets on the UPS/ surge protector. So, will this work? If yes, any suggestions/tips on the best way to do it? If no, why??
