Eventually, Starlink will come my way. If it works, it will need to be mounted to the roof. Big issue is power. Unit comes with 150 feet of cable to connect router/modem to dish. That can sound like a lot, but 150 feet gets used up faster than one expects.
So, my thought is to install the modem/router in the attic, but there are no “always on” circuits up there. I currently have an attic light that’s a lightbulb w/pull cord screwed into one of those bulb/outlet adapters. This may be adequate for initial setup, but the light switch (which is somewhat out of the way) would have to be left on and the lightbulb turned off.
Along these lines, here is my thought…
Remove the light switch and just hard wire the circuit through…replace with a blank face plate.
Replace the light fixture with a traditional outlet and use something else to illuminate the attic as needed (a LED rope light would be nice if it has a switch I can position next to the attic access point).
Install a shelf to hold the modem/router.
Running a new circuit is doable (or at least, tap into an existing circuit and feed wire to new outlet), but that means running wire through closed walls…which is considerably more work and brings into question which circuit(s) are best to tap into.
