I needed to get better range for my bluetooth devices on my Home Assistant (raspberry pi) and decided to position it higher. It has just been sitting on the shelf next to the router for years. I just received a POE adapter and used Tinkercad for the 3D stuff and Cuttle for the laser cut files to make a permanent home for it.
I was that way too. But the electrician didn’t put ends on the cables in the network box in the utility room - just raw Cat 6 cable ends. He did make the connections in the wall boxes throughout the house though.
I bought a new crimper and cable ends. The tech has changed a bunch since I last made cables. I bought pass-through connectors which are much easier to get the wire ends in correctly (order & length) before crimping and the crimper trims the ends off at the same time. Was way easier crimping cables than the last time I did it. Of course it was the last possible cable that needed a connector that was the one I needed for the connection I was trying to make But now they’re all nicely fit with connectors and ready for me to keep setting up devices.
