Follow the cable or the wireless signal.

It is not hooked up to the building Ethernet wiring,
so no wires to follow.

How does it access the building Ethernet wiring?

It doesn't

What does the access point give access to?

At the moment, nothing.  If I ever find it, I will
remove it.  It is their old DSL modem.  They are now on
Fiber Optic.

Just FYI, here in Australia, we are currently going through the process of getting Fibre everywhere. Originally, it was planned to be Fibre-to-the-Premises for everyone, but a change of Government and the plan was cost-cut to Fibre-to-the-Node .. and now users are, apparently, getting the option of Fibre-to-the-Gutter (whatever that may be!!).

Last week, there was a T.V. news item where one consumer was having such problems with their Fibre-to-the-Node system that, after his particular connection being checked out by both the ISP (Telstra) and the Fibre Optic provider (National Broadband Network (NBN)), without the problem being solved, he has now been switched back to the old DSL modem system ... and is getting better connectivity!!

Here in the states, when fiber shows up, it is rock solid.
The ONLY problem anyone has with it is that it is $$$$$$$$$$$$$

I hope you guys get your fixed soon.  The service is extraordinary.
Do you guys get Neflix/Drama Fever/Viki down there?  Works great
on fiber!

Some people do have Netflix, and most/all out five T.V. networks have "catch-up" type services as well.

I don't do either!! There's more than enough on the 20-odd free-to-air T.V. channels to keep me busy ... and then there are my couple of hundred or so DVDs that would otherwise just gather dust!
