I've seen some similar posts but not necessarily addressing my particular situation.
Our house has an unfinished basement , main floor, and second floor. We have our router set up next to our TV on the main floor. There are outlets covered by face plates that all have CAT 3 wiring in all of the bedrooms on the second floor.
I would like to wire CAT 5e for my second floor office. There is an existing plug in the perfect spot by my desk, but I would have to run the wire. I'm not sure exactly how this would work.
The router on the first floor does have a PVC pipe in the wall right beside which leads to the basement. I get that I could make use of that, but I'm not sure how the run would work from the basement to the second floor.
When I took the face plate off the office outlet, the CAT 3 wire looks like it is coming down from above, so I'm assuming it is in the attic.
How would one run the wire in this situation?
