1) So my big task for the day was to restore internet connectivity on a yacht. Company I work for is in process upgrading their whole network and server infrastructure, and lacking internet is severely hampering our ability to work.
So this boat is in a paint shed. That's why it has no connectivity. Big metal Faraday cage around it. No VSAT, bad cellular, etc. So we got the marina to put in a cable.
But the cable is too short. So I get a PoE-powered Ethernet repeater to get there.
3) Obviously this is already a better solution. I track down the port on the patch panel and confirm connectivity.
Problem is, they still haven't given me the credentials to the router/load-balancer. I'm extremely fortunate that I was able to find a WAN port that was configured for DHCP!
Everything is back online, and finally the work can continue.
