Because I am slowly ripping the house apart, it makes sense to add some CAT5e at the same time. Structured cables require a central location where you can patch them together, and at home I don’t want to dedicate a load of space to a server room. I spent some quality time with the hall cupboard and some MDF.

The "After shot"

I mounted the patch panel vertically so all the back-end CAT5 will be hidden. Power is fed to everything from behind the panel (held in with magnetic clips) to keep things tidy.

    You would be running openwrt on that broadband router, wouldn’t you. Of course you would.
