I recently upgraded to a Tivo Roamio for the house, so I'm planning on running ethernet cable out to the living room so that it will get better feed than with the wifi from my AirPort. While I'm at it, I might as well go 'whole hawg' and move the Airport itself out to a shelf in the living room, and run cable over to the Computer room as well. One problem... i don't fit in the crawlspace under our house, nor up into the attic space. I also don't want to put my wife or son in either of those spaces either. This leaves me with one or two logical options...
1) leave things as they are, the house runs fine with just the Airport
2) Surface Mount the cables somehow.
I'm going with option 2), but I priced some ugly plastic wire chases... and had severe sticker shock. NO way I'm paying the prices I found. SO I'm going to try another tack. Once I have the cabling in hand, I plan on cutting a dado or two into a series of boards, and screwing them up near the wall/ceiling (shortest route avoiding all of the doorways in the path... is up and over)... painting them wall color to hide them.
