Switch that will work with crescendo Voip phones
I'm looking to extend my network (wired and static IP addresses) by 3 or 4 PC's. Currently all PC's connect to the network through crescendo Gigabit IP Phones model CX350. Network cable into phone and a Cat-5 cable out to the PC. I purchased a Netgear GS108 switch and connected it to the Cat-5 going into the phone. Connected another cable to the phone and then to the switch. No connection made to the phone. Phone requires 5v 1.2a power which is received through the Cat-5 cable. But doesn't seem to get any power through the switch.
Any Ideas? Different switch?
Appreciate any help.

Welcome to our community!
GS108v4 is just an unmanaged switch and it doesn't support POE. I also checked your Crexendo CX350 and it supports 802.3af class 3 which is compatible with most of our POE switches. You may return this switch to your reseller and swap it with a POE switch.
You may check the GS108P model that can power up your phone using POE.
