Gigabit Power Over Ethernet Injectors Project Built

While going through my electronic project folders, I came across one of my past project, the gigabit power over ethernet (PoE) injector that started some time in May 2012. The motivation for this project was when I wanted to add a second WiFi access point in order to expand wireless coverage for the whole house.
There were limitations or requirements for the task, firstly was the location only had an RJ45 termination nearby and the nearest power socket was at least 5 meters away. Secondly the access point that I would be using is an 802.11n rated 450 mbps transfer speed. In order to fully utilized it, the uplink would have to be gigabit ethernet.
