Could be anything. There's a screw on the right which you should be able to undo to gain access. Might be sealed shut with paint also though, since it looks to be the colour of the wall.




Keep calm, and carry on posting.

Yeah it was painted shut, got that off, the screw on right side is unusual, still haven't got anything to move it, it is a two pronged head, to big for any of my current screw driver heads and my long nose pliers won't reach in.

Could be cable TV, if you have it.

Sounds like a spanner-head screw. Should be easy enough to find a suitable screwdriver bit at somewhere like Mitre10 or Bunnings ;)

Powerboard is around the other side of house, the single cable coming out of ground conduit is a black round cable of around 5mm in diameter.  Having a look on other side of box under house is next on to do list if I can't get it open.

Looks like First Media if Auckland. I have seen one like this before.




Chorus has spent $1.4 billion on making their xDSL broadband network faster and even more now as they are upgrading their rural Conklins. If your still stuck on ADSL or VDSL, why not spend $195 on a master filter install to make sure you are getting the most out of your connection?
I install - Naked DSL, DSL Master Splitters, VoIP, data cabling and general computer support for home and small business.
Rural Broadband RBI installer for Ultimate Broadband and Full Flavour

Telecom's venture into cable TV.  They installed some network into Auckland and some in Wellington.
