So, the office is coming along slowly but surely. I thought I'd post some pics of the network/cable/telephone panel and the room as it is, then just post updates as they happen.

Enjoy!


New Service Panel and Network Panel (network on the left, electric on the right)



Top third of the network panel. Cable TV on the left. Telephone and network bridges on the right. (I know, I know, they aren't hooked up yet)



Middle third of the network panel. Shows the D-Link 8 port switch and high bandwidth cable splitter with filter for the TV's.



Lower third of the network panel showing the Motorola Modem, D-Link Router and power strip.



A shot from "outside" the room


A shot showing the length of the room. (It's 10 foot by 20 foot - outside dimensions)




I still have some clean up in both panels to do but, it's coming along. What do you think so far?

Very nice indeed Hackers! Are there 2 D-link switches? Also how's the heat from your router? Mine gets pretty hot. Any wi-fi coming from your bomb shelter? Wink Where's the Faraday cage? Wink All jokes aside...I'm jealous you get to start from scratch.

Thank you!

There is 1 D-Link Switch and 1 Router

No heat at all. You may need a new one....

Here's where the wi-fi is.....











You have no idea how long it took me to convince the wife to let me put the AE and printer in the pantry! She loves it now though, she doesn't need to go very far to print, considering we print wirelessly.


The faraday cage was behind me in the shots of the new room! Laughing

I only get to start from scratch in the basement, the rest of the house I had to retrofit everything. It's all coming along nicely though...

I would suggest that if you are running any cat6 in the wall, that you use some conduit in case you ever want to change out the cable. It will make future fishing real easy.

The walls I'm not too worried about but, I did run several extra pull strings up to the attic from the basement so I can run stuff later....

Good idea on the conduit though!

And my wife complains about the guinea pigs and fish in the kitchen? Heck, she still has 50% of it for kitchen things! Smile

Aqua, I assume you mean MacDonald's with fries, not Macintosh! Very Happy

I did know that. I remember reading an article about a growth hormone used in a South American country to make cavies (native guinea pigs) much bigger and fatter. They raise them to eat down there and their biggest lament is that North Americans won't buy them as food.

Nice job on the panel Hackers. I can't wait to see pictures of the office when it's done. Smile
