I am trying to properly place the Wifi router and AT&T gateway with 'Structured Media Enclosure' (essentially a metal box) and having a heck of a time arranging an otherwise basic setup.
So the WiFi components should NOT go into the metal box, but there are also no power outlets next to 'Structured Media Enclosure,' which leads to adding an outlet next to it and another outlet for the ethernet cables going in/out. So now we have a bunch of wires plastered over the wall.
I am here to ask if there is a better way: requiring fewer modifications and hiding more of the wires into the wall?
Here is a diagram of what I see as required:
