there was one of those green boxes just like the one in Lukasz's first picture in my town centre on the main street.

 

it had one of the doors hanging off it for months and i'm not even exagerating one bit.

 

another one locally is so rusty that the bottom front edge has rusted away leaving a crumbling jagged gap all the way along it

 

These are all too common I am afraid, and this is what I am talking about when I say that the wiring in your house is something you can control, but it's not the real problem when you are talking about twitch shooters like Call of Duty and Battlefield

Call me an old romantic, but I would be sending the missus out to stand guard while I was gaming if it were my cab - LOL
 
I still can't believe it was left open, and in that state.  Every cabinet I've EVER looked at has been locked down tighter than a Nun's asshole.  It looks as though there's a public warning notice on the inside of the cab door - which is odd in itself.  If you get the chance, could you take a pic of that also? 
 
Cheers lukasz!

will back home tommorow afternon if its still open will make a picture.

Love that sentence about lady guarding lol that made me lough a lot..

That is actually a stand reminder sticker.  Beware, Take care, Don't DISCONNECT in error". 

 

Yeah, I guess that makes sense. It looks more like a warning to the general public from the little I can see tho.  We'll know more if lukasz can grab a pic.

I always knew there was a better class of citizen in 'Nam, Toby Jugs.  If that was Gloucester, the copper would've been robbed in minutes mate  :D

Thanks lukasz   :)

Kind of a loaded question, but let me see if I can clarify and give you an answer.

 

Assuming that everything coming from the outside is in top notch condition, (i.e. you have all the signal you need, everything is maintained correctly and you don't have any ancient gear or plan on extending from the wall plate with string and bubblegum) then yes.

 

In an apartment setting, you are kind of limited in what you can do with rewiring, so if it's convenient and the incoming signal is within specs, go for it.

 

I'm doomed.

Internet first enters my place inside this box (along with other stuff). How am I supposed to hook a modem up there?   :(

Sgt-Greco,  Can you open the box?  If so, take some pictures of whatever's inside, paying attention to any available connections, and JD will most likely be able to tell you what your options are.    
 
I'm speculating, but I'd imagine you would be able to run tails from the box to locate a modem/router in a more convenient place.

Piece of cake bro. A couple of phillips head screws and the lid is off. 

But I already know what's inside:

 

- All the alarm IR sensor cables 

- All the phone lines end up in here.

- A single power line (220V 50 Hz)

 

In a few words a mess...

Interesting.  I have seen these applications before, but they are usually custom builds.  Is there a wired pass through from that location to the inset wall with the glass/plexiglass cover below it?  Empty conduits, pull strings or maybe just matching colored cables with or without ends on them?

Thanks Fraser - I am gathering some pictures and working on the street view next, along with a primer for those interested in FTTC/FTTH applications.

LOL - Easy big guy, I got you.  Working on a thread concept for you, just need to figure out a couple of angles to keep it entertaining. :)

That is how and what I see choppy games besides lower speeds. I just checked my modems Event Log and yes a lot of error messages. I sent them proof. Thank you for your input now I have words to back up what I see.

No  problem, hopefully mine will be fixed this week. they sent the ticket to maintainance, so that they can split the headend because it's too crowded. I hope it fixes the choppy gameplay!

Thanks lukasz :)  It's still wide open!  In our 'compensation culture', I'm surprised nobody has accidently-on-purpose tripped over and seriously injured themselves, yet.
 
"This cabinet has been overhauled.
 
Disciplinary action will be taken against persons proven to have used non-standard working practices or to have left the cabinet in an untidy state."
 
Oh, the irony.  :rolleyes:

The plexiglass board is packed with all the apartment's fuses. (High voltage cables)

The box above contains only low voltage cables  and just one pair of high voltage (220V/50Hz) for power supply.

Messing with the lower panel in any way is an absolute no-no, unless you need an afro-hair look.
