USB Wall Plug and Power over Ethernet not working
So I got 2 of my boards going as media centers, however I'm having some issues with power

Currently, I have 1 plugged into the USB port of a PS4, and the other into a PS3. Doing so, they will boot up and operate fine. However, doing this means that more power is being used as the PS3 has to be on, and the PS4 has to be in standby mode for the USB ports to be powered.

At first I tried using a wall charger from my phone, and it would boot fine but as soon as I opened kodi the board would reset.

Then I tried the USB port on the TV, which didn't work (not sure how much power it gives since it's the service port. I was hoping to have it turn on with the TV)

Lastly, I tried the Power over Ethernet. I got the official adapter from the kickstarter campaign. Tested the network cable and it checks out. Plugged the network cable into the adapter, and the adapter into the ethernet and mini usb power ports on the board. The router (Asus RT-N66U), wouldn't even detect anything on that port, and the board's red LED wouldn't light up.

Is there something I'm maybe doing wrong? I want to get this sorted out before I install 2 of these in my cars.
