Trying to find more network symbols beyond the usual swtich, router, etc.  More for WAN type of equipment: modem, multiplexer, patch/panel, distribution frame, T-1, etc.  Any ideas or suggestions?

Hi ZB,

There are lots of resources available for Visio network shapes, both free and paid. This article talks about Visio Cafe, which is a great source of free stuff, and the article includes a large listing of the actual shapes on offer.

ShapeSource also has a bunch of network equipment shapes, many of which are free. Check out: http://www.shapesource.com/Scripts/prodList.asp?idCategory=51

My site also has a listing of network shape links (albeit poorly formatted). Scroll down near the bottom and look for the heading "Visio Shapes Links" or search the page for "Visio Shapes - Network" to find the network-specific links:
