Someone needed two plugs and had one cable, and no desire to get a switch it seems 😂
olback117082y@Yamemori Yeah, probably. Doesn't ethernet require at least 4 wires?
Don’t think anyone in the building has a phone in their apartment. Plus I haven’t seen this setup before. I’m pretty sure the loose cables you see were connected at some point
It seems like someone is running 2x 100M lines through one cable
gr3yMonKEY62yIts 4 voice lines. They didnt have a rj-45 mod plug for the last one so they used\cut old cable and crimped it together! LMAO sometimes you gotta do with what you got
gr3yMonKEY62yMaybe alarm\phone lines? Its gotta gotta be analog with only one pair@ChainsawBaby
I figured out what that cable hack was. We are part of an experiment to reduce energy consumption from our heating, yet maintain a nice temperature in the apartment
So the company that's doing the experiment has 1 sensor in 4 apartments
And since we're using coax internet, they just plugged the sensors to the ethernet port in the apartment and then put the 4 sensors into one cabled stretched into the boiler room.
