Hmm, how is it ugly?
You’ve gone overboard have you ever heard of a switch? Why so many Lan ports! Also have you heard of a power board? Why do you need 2 double plug outlets?
Not overboard at all.
I'm assuming that is where a TV is going to hang - power points up top for that, down below for AV/IT gear.
You can never have too many LAN ports. Although, in this case, they obviously all do not go back to the cabinet, as only six of them are wired up (assuming other rooms are also wired?)
OP - do you need to use your ASUS? Your easiest solution is to patch from the ONT port (usually port 1) to the lounge LAN port, then patch from that to the WAN port on the router Bigpipe sent you, then use that instead of the Asus.
(Unless the Asus acts as a Router with VLAN tagging, then you can use that instead of the Bigpipe router - you do not need both).
Yes that's correct. TV will hang there. I only bought the asus because that was said to be pretty good and i thought the modem i was sent from big pipe was purely a modem, not a router also.
