Thats where the cablers installed, but yeah I probably should move it to the back, good idea
God why on earth would anyone do that...
Sorting out My folks Network...
Looks like another quality NBN fibre install there
yeah well it isn't in it's original position
Had a big tidy up of my rack yesterday, re-routed cabling and colour coded. Installed sound deadening foam around the outside to seal it to limit air re-circulation and try to make it more bearable to be in that room. Temps look OK but will see how it goes in summer.
So far Kramer approves.
Oh man, I love that print
I have a Kramer too! But currently rolled up ready for that perfect frame
I cabled up 99% of the rack today and fired it up:
Everything just blutacked down for now, as ill have to pull it all apart to put the outer casing on later. Ill also take that opportunity to tidy up some of the cabling. Bloody WiiU and dock have permanently wired power bricks, so now i have to deal with an extra 2m of cable each...
Found a pretty good frame for Kramer.....yet to wall mount. But I think he approves of my set up
Got the same look in his eye, so I reckon he does!
I have to get one of those prints
Definitely. You could have a huge framed Kramer for probably about $70
oh cool thread
swapping the T620 for an R720 in the coming days when my CPUs arrive, and the EBM for the UPS is not hooked up, because when I tried hooking it up there was a loud bang and spark and I chickened out hmm
Sometimes not as cool as desired
Picked up a 10” 6RU cabinet for the shed - using a UniFi AP as bridge into the 8 port switch, PoE running the AP and two cameras.
This thing’s adorable.
EDIT: Urgh on mobile and it doesn’t seem to like rotating the iPhone photo... will fix later.
Using the same rack for my Shed...
G'day all! I am a late comer to the party.
I moved to my new home, and this was ideal time to put some effort in the home network.
I have a fair few network connections spread out across the home. Being a tech savy person, I always wanted to put more cables than required, when the house was being built.
So I ended up with 4 network points behind the media rack in living, 1 in master bed, 1 in study etc. Plus a couple of cables in ceiling for access points.
All cables were pulled to the garage.
I have placed all the gear in a wall mounted rack in my garage. It is height mounted and totally out of way.
The home builders were adamant to place their crappy Hills home cabinet, and I had no way to force my hand. Afterwards the NBN installers also terminated the fibre in this cabinet.
I have run cables from the cabinet to overhead rack inside the wall cavity to keep it tidy.
The rack hosts the patch panel, a 24 port Unifi POE switch, and a fanless PC running Sophos XG Home gateway.
Lately, since I have spotted currently unused network ports on the switch, I have disconnected those ports. I also moved one of my HP Microservers to sit in the cabinet.
I think it fits pretty well, and stays out of my way.
This is given me some space back in home office.
They are OK if you want an in-wall solution, but you essentially get zero upgrade options for later on.
Like the passively cooled router, I've got the four port variant running pfsense. They are a little exxy but man they work great.
