Nah, only the 2001 version. 2001 was when I got the Yahoo email acct, and navydavy was my nickname when I was active duty. Some salty old boss gave it to me like my first year in. Very Happy

Thanks again.

You got it....but here's a rough draft of what it'll look like (minus the switch):



Cable modem is top left. Top center is cable distribution, top right is phone distribution. I currently have two rj11 connectors hooked up to it to test the lines. Since this picutre I actually installed a box that has cable, phone, and ethernet in it to simulate what each room in our house would have. Works nicely so far.

Middle left is netgear router, middle center is RTP300 phone adapater, right and lower is netgear 10/100 switch

Bottom left, I have a test phone. The bottom is mean for the surge protector to mount to, but I might mount it by itself on the side.

I know its a bit messy cable wise....but I'll work on fixing that for the final version as well.

A couple of improvments have been made since this shot was taken, but nothing serious. I'll be working on the switch mechanism probably this weekend and get that finalized.

For those who complain how bright the RTP300 is...check out what this setup looks like at night (keep in mind this is currently in our bedroom till we move):



can we geek it? YES we can!

You should consider buying MORE LED's for the night shot! That's cool! As for the wiring, just pair up signal separately from power, zip tie and connect to the board somehow. It might be a pain, but you could always drill holes near the equipment and and put the cables on the backside of the board. That would look really clean, but be a pain to move cables. Hmm, I'm thinking CAT5 patch panel!

Power I got a workable solution. I found this website that sells really strong 1 ft extension cords. So it'll let me use all 6 plugs on my powerstrip instead of the four right now taking them all.

I'm not too concerned with neatness at this time. I'll be more concerned about that after I know everything works nicely. Once the house is all wired up and I've tested and retested every line....then I'll work on making it neat.

More LEDs would rock though! Maybe install a LED display at the top to tell you which phone connection is activated, Vonage or POTS.

I defintly was thinking CAT5 patch panel at the beginning. But then I'd have to get a lot of really small CAT5 cables to go from the patch panel to the switch. That's more cables to test and retest. This way I run the CAT5e cable from each room to this unit...then I add on a RJ45 and plug directly into the switch. Saves on wires....although I do enjoy punching down stuff....

Overall, I'm really excited about this project. I'm hoping to have at least two of the rooms wired in the first week were at the new house. My brother-in-law is coming the first weekend to help wire the rest of the house (he's an electrician). I can't wait to get started on this.....nothing to do but wait and pack till Feb 24th.

Damn! I didn't know these things were that expensive:

http://www.electronicdisplays.com/prodcat/default.asp?cstop=4&pcid=57

Ok, the cheap solution:

Mount two of these red ones on the top corners of the board, and label under each either "VoIP Active" or "POTS Active"

Those lights look awesome. Now if I can just find a solar panel to put outside my house to power all these extra lights.

I wonder if anyone else here has a crazy structured wiring scheme like this.

I don't know, but I sure as hell will, this is inspirational! Very Happy

Refresh my memory, you're actually bolting the whole mess to the wall right? If so, I'd leave a nice gap between the panel and the wall, just make sure everything has enough breathable air, ya know.

The wall in which this board will rest upon is concrete (its in the basement). So I'm using tapcon screws to attach it. I wasn't planning on leaving any space open behind it (although there is a layer of peg board and styrofoam the previous owner left hanging) since tapcon screws are stronger the longer the length in the wall. I need at least an inch of the screw in the wall. I'm using 2-1/2 inch screws.

Any if any are so inspired...I recommend reading upon this subject as much as possible. I'll share the website that inspired me:
http://www.swhowto.com/

Enjoy! And apologize to your loved ones now for all the money you'll be spending on tools and cables.
