these are real rough diagrams of my parent's house that I made in powerpoint but it gets the idea across. the bottom floor is self explanatory, i didn't label hallways or anything. as for the top floor, anything that isn't labeled doesn't exist, as the top floor is mostly overhanging open space overlooking the bottom floor. so my questions are, what is the best way to wire this to get everything hooked up. my parents just finally got into the world of broadband with DSL and i'm in charge of hooking up the whole house when I go home for spring break. it doesn't really matter where the dsl modem and router are as far as I or they care, as long as we can hook up everything without having wires hanging everywhere. so what's the best way to do this, since running them right along walls isn't an option dealing with two floors and two rooms in the open (living and dining) Rooms in red text need to be wired, and the red squares are the locations of the computers. I realize these are really weak diagrams but I'm a visual person so I figure there is others out there who are visual too and might be able to better help me plan this out so I can do it quick when I get home.
