basement network wiring scheme

designed and mounted computer network internet equipment on white plywood board and shelf. Added hanging light, shelf and mounted equipment and cabling. Note two internet routers. This install has two separate internet gateways – one for home, one for office. Home has multiple bridged wireless network antennas, to support connection roaming throughout house, and at outdoor patios.

Estate house, crappy wiring job, equipment piled on top of each other, sloppy wiring. Old and slow equipment, no electrical protection, unmounted and unlabeled equipment and wiring. Network needs an upgrade, doesn’t want to spend money.

Being a system engineer and network architect, i look back fondly on the many hours i spent in the workshops of both my grandfathers, learning how to build and repair. It have given me skills beyond the hand tools – to analyze, adapt, persevere and presume there is always a solution to a problem. Thanks, Jack.
