|Re: [PLUG] Boxes for Internet in Garage?|
Okay, thanks for your thoughts! Here are some pictures, in order from
the street to the garage boxes.
1. In the front yard, with a pipe going into the ground and a coax
cable going right through the fence into the back yard.
2. Shot of #1 opened.
3. In the back yard, coax running from the left, split into three: one
up and into the house to our modem, two into the garage (probably
straight into #7). Notice another coax coming up out of the ground no
longer attached, probably an old input. Also a telephone box.
4. Up into the house.
5. Inside the telephone box. Nothing interesting here I think?
6. Inside the garage now. Power adapter I guess?
7. The thing that beeps.
I agree that #7 might be an old security alarm. The top blue button
says "Alarm Silence." But if I unplug #6 then my cable modem loses its
connection. So I guess #7 is doing more than just being a security
Any ideas? Thanks everyone---this is really fascinating figuring out
what I've got here!
