  1. Dish receiver maybe. Computer, no way.

    Max for Power over Ethernet is 15W, or 25W if using PoE+.

    I strongly suggest finding an alternate source. You may be able to use the ethernet cable as a draw-wire to pull through a new ethernet cable and a power cable.
  2. It sounds like a worded the question wrong. I am not trying to electrically power the two. I just need to supply internet to both the dish receiver and the computer.
  3. Best answer

    Ethernet switch.
  4. That is what I was thinking. Thanks for the confirmation.
