Yup I agree that is a box -- in the back of a closet? Yeah not going to be the best place for a wireless AP/Router to provide coverage
Yea it's tucked in there behind my clothing. with a metal plate covering it.... I dont' think they meant for wireless stuff to be put in there.
Antennas all crossing over themselves next to cables and metal.. Where are all these 15 connections to other rooms?
"so in mine, I got ~15is cable heads and this coax "switch/spliter"
Yea 1 of each cable going to every room. multiple for common areas. they go out towards the top of the picture.
Most of the cat cables are not going anywhere. There is a splitter there for coax, but I don't see any sort of multiple cat ports.. So that could run to 1 other port, or to a switch?
I would NEVER put my wireless router in there.. Lets not forget temp, some routers/ap can get warm.. Putting them in a closed up box not going to be best for what temps they run at, etc.
I was hoping to leave the door open and have it be fine. but I see your point. this may not be a great idea.
So question for you.. Does internet come in on the coax and that under the splitter is your modem, or is coax just for say TV and the internet comes in on cat, and you are just plugging in a wireless router here. that's usually how most buildings in seattle are built. Cat3 for older buildings and cat5/e for new buildings. ISPs often use Ethernet and put their switches in the telco closets.
Again I would not put any networking equipment in that box be it wireless or not. Its closed up, no air flow..
