comment How do I run wired internet from a single router to several different rooms in an apartment?
Good point about putting a pair of ports in each room. Though if push comes to shove you could always run a local switch in a room if you needed more ports.

@jmac - I (tentatively) assumed load bearing because you said "up and over" rather than "through". Wiring the cables is not difficult, just that if they're not familiar with network cabling they might get it wrong. You just need to ensure that the right numbered/coloured strand is connected to the right terminal.

comment How do I prepare an already painted wall for new paint?
@jiggunjer - one that you can sand - because unless your a pro, you're not going to get a flush surface. One that's flexible, one that will take the paint you want to use. Basically check the label.

@ray023 - anything stiff enough to bring up the mold but soft enough not to damage the surface. For tiles you can use something fairly tough.
