3560G-24-PS Configure PoE power consumption configuration

     Good Evening Experts>
 I am trying to configure a Cisco 3560G-24-PS Switch, PoE Power Inline consumption to 24Watts for (5) of the Ports for Access Points.
   From research on the web, I see that I can configure up to (12) ports to operate at up to 30 Watts of power each.
   When I tried to configure static Inline power on a port, the max I could static to was 15.4 Watts. (15400 milli-watts)
   I upgraded the IOS to the newest release of C3560-ipbasek9-mz.122-55.SE.bin and I still cannot configure any ports to anything above 15.4 Watts.

   I tried configuring "Power inline never" to all the other ports, and I still cannot configure any port to any power setting above 15.4 Watts

   Does anyone have any suggestions?
     Thanks.

you can just use this command

power inline consumption default [wattage]

on all the  interfaces and set the wattage to 0.   The set the ones you want to the correct wattage.

the model indicated can only support 15.4w per switchport.

PoE
• Maximum power supplied per port: 15.4W
• Total power dedicated to PoE: 370W
• Total power dedicated to PoE: 124W (Cisco Catalyst 3560-8PC, Catalyst 3560-12PC)

What kind of access points are you connecting? 802.11n APs will need a "special" injector for that.

Standard PoE 802.3af will support maximum 15.4w

I am connecting Meru AP311's (A,B,G,N)
 
  Here are a couple of email threads I sent to our Cisco Rep:

Have a quick question.
   According to some research I found on the Web.
   With Cisco WS3560G-24P-S (POE) Switches, Up to 12 ports can be configured to power up to 30Watts of power per POE port.
I have a Access Point that in order to run MIMO 3X3, the POE port needs to operate at 24W.
  I have a WS3560G-24P-S (POE) Switch, and I have tried to configure the Power, but I see that I can only go as high as 15.4W:
 
  This is the reply from the Cisco Rep:

I confirmed with the wireless team.  This is the response…
 Customer needs to upgrade software on switch first to support.
 power inline static
power inline port maximum 24000

  I have contacted the Cisco Rep Back via e-mail and I am waiting for a responce for them as well.
   Thanks
