That sounds like the only way so far.

It takes too long to train them. Just hire someone that already has a trained rat.biggrin.gif
If you think this is far fetched, watch this: https://www.ted.com/talks/bart_weetjens_how_i_taught_rats_to_sniff_out_land_mines?language=en
The damned things are really smart, and easy to train.

Ferrets are often used to route a pull string in conduit. They are far easier to train.

It's so expensive frown.gif

In a previous life, I worked for a security company (before everything was wireless). It is ALWAYS possible to hide a wire. Here are some options:

1) Baseboard- You can pull the base board and cut a notch in the back to staple the wire to. The re-install baseboard and be careful where you put the nails.
b. Get some 1/4 round or shoe molding. Notch the back corner of it on table saw. Lay the wire down where the baseboard meets the floor, and install molding over it. care with nails again.

2) Crown molding- Same idea, but a little more difficult since the run up the wall to get to the ceiling is more difficult to hide.

3) A/C ducts. You have to use plenum rated wire! All of your duct work connects to all of your rooms. This way is REALLY difficult, and it doesn't help in hiding the wire once it comes out of the duct. If you have floor ducts, this can look pretty decent. I've seen people tie fish string (not fishing line, but string meant specifically for pulling wire) to duct cleaning tools, RC cars with a camera attached, and even a trained rat! (The guy with the rat was eff'ing awesome!)

Just a couple of tricks of the trade for getting from room to room. We used closets a lot. Hide a wire in a closet along the corner behind the door. No one looks there. Doorways: If you are going to use the baseboard technique, you will need to get around door jambs to get from one room to another. Drill a hole through the wall where the baseboard meets the door casing, but don't try to go straight to where you want it to pop out on the other side. You will either miss and be in the middle of the wall on the other side, or catch the edge of the casing and split it on the other side. Drill from both sides at the same angle toward the door. About a 20 degree angle works well. Drill about half way through, and do the same on the other side. The goal is for the two holes to intersect, but not at such a sharp angle that the wire won't make the turn when shoving it through.

My favorite way to do it was to pull the base board, but everyone had their own way.

1) Unfortunately my baseboards are also marble, same material as my floor.
2) I do have crown molding! But I think its made of concrete.
3) No A/C ducts in my house frown.gif

Well I guess I need to go buy a rat now, the ocn community just keeps impressing me with the interesting ideas wheee.gif
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
No, I'm kidding, no rats, my mum would kill me (and the rat).

I was thinking of attaching the CAT6 to the existing CAT3 and pulling it over, I just need a way to identify the CAT3 on each end :/
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

I also realised, using a RAT to pull CAT, that's funny, huehuehue

Where would I get a ferret from in Singapore...

At least with rats I can just capture one from the dumpsters at night.

Yeah, let me just go flood my walls with water and go find myself a microdolphin to pull my cables for me.

Just to keep derailing the thread, they don't sell ferrets there? I guess the US is weird that we sell so many pets.

The thread is gonna end up in a river and kill 10 people. Too soon? Okay frown.gif

Anyway, ferrets are actually banned as pets here in Singapore, along with chewing gum and a huge list of other things :/
