In Response To: Routing Network cable (Tom)

If all fails, try these methods. (1) run the cable to an area located directly over a closet. Drop the cable down into the closet, and reroute it from the closet to your daughter's computer. (2) Run the cable through the nearest wall instead of the floors. You may need a flexible drill bit to drill thru the horizontal 2X4s. Check a rental shop to see if you can rent you one. They can be had in 4ft length. If driling is impossible, knock off a section of the plastic board, run the cable, and close the hole with another sheet of plaster board. (3) Cut out a square piece section from your floor and examine the area below for cross-studs or air-return ducts that may be getting in your way. Run the cable and close the floor. (4) Run the cable out of the house and back into your daughter's room. (5) look into wireless technology to connect your daughter's computer to yours. They are not cheap. (6) Install a new telephone jack next to your daughter's machine so she can connect to the internet directly. Installing a new phone jack is as easy as ABC and you don't need a second line. (7) Call the network technician at your company to route the cable for you. These guys know how to get the cable to your daughter's computer.
