    Migrating from Leviton Structured Media to a Rack

    Well, I'm done. Good thing I FIRE'd a few years ago since this took five days to finish. I drilled new holes in the joists and pulled through all the cables that were hanging from the ceiling with half-assed ceiling hangers and did a bit of other work that you don't see here.   Before, Leviton...

    Migrating from Leviton Structured Media to a Rack

    I spent my day drilling joists and pulling the cat 6 out of the janky wire hung installation I did back in 2013. The install is getting there.  Tomorrow I’ll punch down the last of the terminals, flip the patch panel around and do as good a job of dressing the cables as I can. I am sure it will...

    Migrating from Leviton Structured Media to a Rack

    Well, I’m well on my way. I took the Leviton cabinet off the wall. It helps to use metal snips to free the cables from the enclosure. This allowed me to hang everything temporarily. I bought an Echogear 20U rack since it seemed higher quality than the Navepoint. It’s great to have all this room...

    Migrating from Leviton Structured Media to a Rack

    A year after moving into our new house, in 2013, I bought a Leviton 47605-42W SMC Structured Media Enclosure. This was a big mistake. It's 8 years later. I've been scared to deal with the solution, which is to buy a hinged wall rack. The Leviton Structured Media Enclosure is a horrible, horrible...

    Leviton 21" Structred Media Cabinet - how to connect

    For mine? Not unless they are capable of link aggregation

    Leviton 21" Structred Media Cabinet - how to connect

    I didn't mean that the clips are brittle or breaking, I meant the wires are. There also are no covers.

    Leviton 21" Structred Media Cabinet - how to connect

    I'm getting closer to a photo, although it's still a bit of a mess in there.   It's my first time doing this so I'm learning a lot of things in the process.   Would I do this again? Hmm… maybe, maybe not.   The switch is not really the problem. It is tight with it there, but the big problem for...

    I wanted a switch that would support link aggregation.

    Things are coming together. Once I have my telephone wires in a little less embarrassing situation, I will take a photo and upload.

    Leviton 21" Structred Media Cabinet - how to connect

    Well I have the 42" enclosure. Yes, the switch does take up some room, but it's doable. I'd like the enclosure to be more geometrically laid out than I've been able to do it, but it's fine.   On the one hand, a rack would make more sense given what I need to put in there, on the other hand, it's...

    Leviton 21" Structred Media Cabinet - how to connect

    I've got a 42" cabinet. There's plenty of room. I think I can pull it off. I went to the hardware store and then promptly left the bag with all of my screws, washers, and nuts at the front desk. Went back after dinner but it was closed. Or at least I hope I left them there! Otherwise I'm out of...

    keep old phone network in my house or rip and replace with cat 6?

    My current phone has an intercom system built into it. The only limitation it has in my book is that it only has two lines.

    Leviton 21" Structred Media Cabinet - how to connect

    I'm going to revive this thread because I am in a similar situation and was going to start my own thread until somehow I found this one (I thought I'd already searched). I have a Netgear GS724Tv3 24 port switch. It weighs about 6 pounds. it is going into the cabinet on vertically and on its...

    Best deal on pay per use SIM card for data?

    How would you implement failover?   I have to say that I just investigated P-Tel for cell/data service so I don't know if it would work for a dedicated data modem. But I do have an old iPhone. If failover was easy enough to get going it'd be possible to rig it up as tethered to give emergency...
