So back in 2017 I was in a different house that I rented from a family member. and I was looking through the old forums and found these old pictures, btw this was just a home lab and I realize there are some things that I should of done better / different.

Where I ran external lines from the house (both CAT6 and coax) from the house (left) to the external garage (right).

Then this was "version one" of the room where I had all my servers.

And this was the AP that we had in the external garage.

Good times! I just completed a wireless infrastructure overhaul not long ago. Always fun to keep our home networks in shape! My Wi-Fi charts look so much better now. I migrated to all mesh APs.
