I need to run a ethernet cable up a wall, through my ceiling cavity, and then down another wall - with RJ45 wall sockets installed at each end.  I was thinking about doing it myself, but don't think I have the right tools (and don't want to buy them for this one off job)

Can anyone recommend a good electrician / tradesman in Auckland to do this for me?

I've used Data Wiring to run cable at customer sites and always found them to do a good job for a fair price.

If you are out West, I can do this for you. If you want to save a few $$, then you can pre-run the cables and I can tap them off. Send me a PM if you would like my help.


Chorus has spent $1.4 billion on making their xDSL broadband network faster. If your still stuck on ADSL or VDSL, why not spend from $150 on a master filter install to make sure you are getting the most out of your connection?
