A couple of years ago I was looking at businesses to buy and took a look at a listing for an Internet cafe.  The image below was supplied in the listing, I can only imagine, to show off the switch and patch panel.  It does, however, say a lot more about the business!

Hmmm, I thought internet cafe's were a thing of the past, mobile devices killed them off did they not? Regardless, do they intend to cook that router naturally or is it prepared to be suve'd. And there seems to be some cable managers missing, and whats the grey gear to the right.

Perhaps gaming cafe is more accurate.  Showing my age!

 

I expect the grey gear is a server for some reason.

I think the plastic is to stop food getting on it 😃

As long as that's their sole WiFi router everything will be fine!

 

It will get up to operating temp super quick in its plastic bag, then when the microwave is turned on, it will make the WiFi waves even more micro, allowing them to travel fastererer and betterererer.

 

It's a good tip for a beginner, always plug your WiFi equipment in, right next to the microwave - then put it in a bag.
