Thanks to Cable and Data Communications for the picture446 viewsHad trouble finding the MDF and phone system.
Eventually found in the false ceiling.
11 way MDF to the right and 11 way SDF to the left.
The next ceiling tile is hiding the phone system and security box plus lots of other stuff.
These all were on a wall that was demolished and the builder has tossed them into the ceiling.
This is not temporary but the finished job.

Thanks to qrc-cd99 for the pictures358 viewsIn the far north of WA some areas are infested with Singapore Ants. (They actually come from North Africa, not Singapore) The problem with these things is that they like to munch on plastic. A favourite part of their diet is the insulation used on communication and electrical wiring. They have even been known to invade parked vehicles to have a go at the wiring in a car.Magilla

Thanks to BJR Security for the picture535 viewsPatch lead cut, poked under house and joined onto 8 individual wires to extend it, then joined on other end of patch lead. (His PC showed as connected to lan, his cheap wire mapper tester showed each wire was joined OK, but speed wasn’t good. My tester showed that something wasn't right)Magilla
