One of the worst network wiring jobs I’ve ever seen…

Hi All,

We moved Microsoft offices last week here in Christchurch, and as such we needed some additional wiring and electrical work to be done as there wasn’t enough wiring to cater for our needs. One of the ports in my office wasn’t working (it didn’t pass the cabling test with my tester) so I asked the cablers to test all ports in the rooms to ensure they were working as expected. When we pulled the jack off the wall, this is what we found…..


So from the look of it (and from testing) the original cabler/sparky decided that the jackpoints on this wall maybe better suited on the other wall, so daisy chained it to the new jackpoint rather than running another cable from the patch panel… Both jackpoints are 26 and 28.. truely cowboy-ish for a new building install!
