Are you expecting to run your computer power wise from this PoE adapter? If so, you need to lower your expectations as all commonly available adapters don't have enough power to do this. The most common spec and one you'll find most PoE devices you purchase through normal channels can only supply up to a max of 15.4W meeting IEEE 802.3af standards.

The other part of the equation is that the device you purchase has to be able to support PoE. So I highly doubt the onboard NIC (or any add in PC NIC adapter) supports PoE.

The adapter you are looking to use is probably an inline power injector to help feed a PoE capable device like a VoIP phone, WAP, security camera, etc. The adapter is used in environments where there is not a capable PoE switch being used.
