Adding Data Ports to Panel


I am trying to add more data ports for my NBN box in the garage similar to the RJ45 outlets marked A and B in this photo. The square plates can be removed and measures around 45mm x 45mm. It is modular based where RJ45 outlet for A & B is snapped in once the square plate is remove but I can't find anything compatible for it.

RJ45 outlets for A & B is angled down (about 45 degrees) to accommodate the closed door for the box and LAN cable. Brand of the box is Mi-Home but I have no luck finding it in Google. Hope someone can point me to the right direction. Overall face place size is about 15cm x 20cm. Changing the whole face plate is an option if I can't find the right RJ45 outlet module for it. TIA.

  • Not sure on your unit itself but for plan B, a regular switch should work.

    • Thanks, I am planning to add a switch in the NBN box. Intention for the new data ports is for other devices around my house to connect to the switch in the NBN box.

    Who is going to run the CAT5E cable through the walls/cavities?

    • I’m thinking of DIY. One device is in the roof space and one is in a room with existing conduit.

        • Yes for the element and jaycar. Awesome find on the last one! I searched Mi-Home (per logo on the box) but came up with only results for Xiaomi! I will get in touch with that business and see what they can offer. THANK YOU!

        I’m thinking of DIY.

        Then you might want to also read the license requirements for your state (assuming it's still WA)

        And have a quick peruse of the standards for cable installations before you do any DIY cabling.

        If you are getting up into the roof space of your house, you may need/want to consider confined space training.


        • "Ive done heaps of cabling and never needed a license."
        • "What standards? How hard is it to run a cable?"
        • "I'm a man, I don't need a course to tell me how to get up in a roof space."
        • Thanks for your inputs. Thanks to AndyC1's find above, I will get the business which supplied the box to do it or to recommend someone to do it.
